Is it possible that the compressor is not recycling properly thus causing an intermittent smell upon using car air conditioning?

Usually it is slight mold and mildew in the evaporator case that makes the smell, if you put the air on high and take lysol spray and spray under the glove box and dash that should kill it may take a few times though. Also make sure your evaperator drain hose is not obstructed. A buildup of condensate can lead to mold and a musty smell.

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.

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.

If you are facing the problem of low discharge airflow to the cooling space causing low cooling performance which can lead to possible damage to the compressor of the air conditioners.
