The serpentine should route the same as with the AC except fro the AC compressor. The belt will go straight past the compressor, so you will need a shorter belt to make the bypass work.
78 inch 6 rib belt.
I had a 1995 buick lesabre and the A/C compressor went out in the winter time. I waited until spring to replace the compressor. In the mean time, I used a Dayco 72.10 inch belt and bypassed the A/C compressor and it runs fine.
Simply purchase the belt for a non air conditioned version of your vehicle and route the belt the same as the old one excluding the compressor
On 1997 through 2002 years on the Expedtions with V8 engines it is impossible to do so. It is however possible to do with the V6 model.
I know on my cavalier which is a 2001 it is possible to re route the serpentine belt away from the air conditioner compressor. I was having trouble with mine popping the belt off. Hope I helped you out.
You will not be able to route a different belt without the compressor even if you use a shorter belt but you can sometimes get what is called a "bypass" pulley for some of the models but I would need to know the year and engine size to see if one is available.......
At the front of the engine compartment, there'll be a diagram displaying how the serpentine belt is routed. There'll be a diagram showing how it is done without AC, and how it is done with AC. Just route it the way it shows you to do it without AC, and you'll bypass the compressor.
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.
It would take some trial/error and a few belt purchases to get just the right length, but there is no benefit. If air is not on, clutch is not engaged on it so no drag or horsepower loss.
