Yes you can if you determine the proper length belt. You can also just unplug the A/C compressor clutch.

If you want to,you can just remove the compressor,open it up & remove just enough of the innerds so that the pulley still turns propperly,but yet the compressor is worthless as far as the a/c is concerned. that way you don't have to worry about belt length-just use the same size reccomended for your car. This is something that I have done myself many times B4. Master James

Why does your air conditioning compressor for your car squeal when it is operating?

There can be quite a few reasons as to why the compressor is squealing when the a/c is activated. The most common cause is a loose accessory drive belt (or serpentine belt on some vehicles). Another cause is a loose or weak a/c clutch or possibly a faulty or defective compressor. Try tightening or replacing the accessory drive belt/serpentine belt. If that does not work, have compressor checked at a qualified repair facility.

How can you fix your ac compressor on your 1991 Ford Taurus SHO?

AC compressors are relatively easy to replace, typically it's only the serpentine belt and a few bolts. The hoses are a little more trouble. Typically a worn or failed compressor has deposited debris in the refrigerant lines requiring that they be replaced or cleaned. The procedure is: 1, extract any remaining refrigerant from the system into an approved container suitable for recycling. 2, remove the serpentine belt, disconnect the refrigerant lines from the compressor then remove the bolts and lift out the compressor. 3, Examine the inside of the refrigerant lines, looking for any discoloration. If the remaining oil is not clear, you should flush all of the refrigerant lines to make sure they are completely clean. Since you'll be replacing the old R12 refrigerant with 134A, you should probably do that anyway. 4, Since the vehicle is "experienced", it would probably be a good idea to replace any of the rubber refrigerant lines. That way you can avoid some problems. Since they are that old they'll be leaking soon anyway so you're not really wasting money. 5, Replace the receiver/dryer. 6, connect the new compressor and refrigerant hoses. 7, Connect the serpentine belt. 8, evacuate the system. If you don't have an evacuation pump for air conditioners, have someone do that part for you. You need to verify that there are no leaks anywhere in the system BEFORE you put the oil charge or the refrigerant. Air conditioning compressors are not repairable by the home mechanic. Unfortunately your only option is to replace it.

Can you bypass the air conditioning compressor with a serpentine belt on a 2000 Dodge Dakota V8?

Yes, but if you unplug the wiring to the compressor, the pulley will simply idle without causing the compressor to do anything, unless the pulley clutch is faulty and is constantly engaging the compressor, in which case, you will have to bypass the compressor pulley or replace it. If you must bypass the air conditioner, you will need a shorter belt (by at least 12 inches). It is possible that the stock belt for your motor without air conditioning option will fit, try that option first. Otherwise the proper fit will have to be determined by trial and error or use string to trace the new route and measure its length. The new route should be exactly the same except bypassing the compressor.
