I'm sure you can but you would have to measure how much shorter it will be.Take your belt off and use a piece of string and go around where your belt goes except leave out the a/c ccompressor and you will have the length,just go to the parts store and measure one up.Remember if it is to big or to small you can return it for a different size.Also when measureing with the string on the car make sure it will not hit or interfere with anything because of bypassing the compressor,but it should be ok.

its a size 680k belt or 68 inches i know i went through five sizes till got right and you have to down size idler pulley in order to fit secure we spent 8 hours perfecting the answer is yes will take alot of time and effort depending on your car the string thing does not work trail and error

Is it possible to bypass the ac compressor on a 1997 olds achieva 4-cylinder if so what size will the belt be?

Don't try to bypass the compressor by using a shorter belt. That will alter the belt wrap around the pulleys, which will result in slippage, squealing, and rapid belt wear. Go to and look up the part number for an A/C bypass pulley and then call your local auto parts store to check stock. They fit in place of your compressor and use the same bolts and bolt holes. No drilling. They contain a pulley the same size as your compressor. They cost around $30. You can use the original belt and keep the same belt routing. That's the best way to go.

What size serpentine belt is used when you bypass the AC pulley in a 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera 6 cylinder?

AnswerThey sell a bypass pulley but this is difficult to change. (you have to pull the compressor to get to the three bolts) The original belt is a 1073k6. The 1073 mean 107.3 inches. The belt needed to just bypass the compressor is 34 inches shorter, but they do not sell a 733k6 belt. They do sell a 735k6. This will work fine if your tensioner is in good shape. But the bypass pulleys are cheap and keep the right set up. Good luck. On my 1992 Ciera, they even had a diagram as to how the belt is installed "with AC" and "no AC" and the picture eliminated the compressor for the no AC option. If the manufacture shows an option without a compressor, I wonder why all the part stores don't have that info.

What size belt do you need to bypass the ac compressor on a 1994 buick regal?

Go to the local auto parts. Ask about the 1994 1993 and 1992 ac belts, make sure that they are the same. If they are the same then ask for 1992 or 1993 belt for the non ac motor. This is the belt that you need.

What size serpentine belt should be used on replacing a shorter belt to bypass the ac compressor?

Sometimes you simply cant guess what size you ought to use because the way the AC compressor is layed out doesn't allow you to run a serpentine belt as it may be in the way of the belt. However if you remove the compressor you can sometimes use the non-AC part number for the belt providing none of the other ancillaries that are run by the belt have been moved around in order to fit the AC compressor. Some garage computer programs provide the drawings of the positioning of the different components that are driven by the belt. There you can compare if all these components remain in the same locations as in your vehicle. If this is the case you can install the non-AC belt prior to removing your compressor and see if the correct tension is maintained. Hope this helps. PS: Do not run an engine on a faulty compressor as if it seizes it could potentially destroy your engine (common fault on Renault clios)
