yes but would not recmend the belt is pricy and hard to find if your compressor is bad thay do have bypass poleys to but it is also pricy if you need to get some string take the old belt off and go over the poleys with the string bypassing the compressor to get your belt size and go to the auto parts store to get the new belt and put it back on in the same patern as the old one skiping the compressor good luck
