If the compressor is in the path of the belts you will need to remove it. If it is outside the path you can simply replace the belt with a smaller belt. Serpentine belts are sized by their number of grooves and length. For example: a 50.5" circumference belt with 6 grooves wwould be : 6K505 or a variation of that. Take a wire and run it along the new belt path to get a idea for the length and count the grooves. Good luck! You would have to get a shorter belt. Why do you want to bypass it? Just unplug the compressor clutch or pull the fuse and use as is. The clutch will not engage and there will be no drag on the engine.

How do you replace the serpentine belt for a 1993 Mazda Protege?

you have to loosen a bolt on the front of the AC compressor, I think its a 12mm. You loosen it and the the AC compressor will then be able to rotate downward, sometimes the compressor gets stuck with age and you might need to tap it down with a mallet. Once the compressor rotates downward the tension in the belt will be gone and you can change the belt. Then tighten the same bolt until you achieve the desired tension

The short answer is "NO." They do not sell shortened belts. To fix the problem, you can do two things. Remove the a/c clutch with a puller and install a new one (a real pain!). Or, replace the a/c compressor.

Can you bypass the air conditioning compressor on a 1993 Ford Taurus?

If it's a Taurus GL, you would also have to bypass the Power steering pump. Recently my A/C compressor ceased up on me. I tried bypassing the compressor but the belt ran against a hose that was near the PS pump so I had to shorten it to include only the water pump and alternator. I had to also drop the alternator ( reomoved the anchor bolt) to make the shorter belt fit. I am still driving the car but no A/C or power steering. The best thing to do would be to go to your nearest auto wreckers and get a used compressor. hope this helped.
