If the pulley is seized and you don't want to replace it with a new or reman one, there may be a few options. One is bypass the compressor completely. follow how the belt travels around the pullies, and how it would run if you just don't put it around the compressor. IF the compressor interferes with the travel then you can't. So you may want to consider a used one from a junkyard. If the compressor does not interfere, and the travel direction of the belt is possible, take a string and wrap it around exactly how the belt will go and by pass the compressor. Measure the string and take the original belt to the part store and tell the you want a belt like that but only "what ever the length of the string is" long. Some cars do not offer A/C so there may be no listing for one that doesn't have a/c. If the compressor is seized, replacing the pulley may not be an option. buy a belt for one with no AC there is no way to bypass this i have tried although they sell a pulley called a help pulley for 30.00 i put it in mine works fine

Why does my 1999 Dodge Intrepid blow hot air from my ac?

When you trun on the AC two things should happen, Your Compressor Pulley should engage and your radiator fan should turn on. This can be a few problems. One of the most common problems is that your AC compressor pulley is not engaging, this pulley had 3 small circles on it. When you activate your *AC* option, the compressor pulley should engage with the pulley that the belt is on. If not then you will not get AC, only your fan. Now does your AC feel fine when your moving but then suddenly warms up as you stop? If this happens then your condenser fan (or radiator fan) is not running. This is because heat is not being blown off the freon and it will not be very cold or cold at all when it enters your AC evaporator (where the air is cooled). In this case you should leave the AC off or else it can put the compressor under excess high pressure and can cause it to fail prematurely. The last problem is that you might simply be low on freon. If this is the case, make sure to have your AC checked for leaks before being recharged. Dave.

Check for a blown fuse. If fuse is OK, see if the wiring at the compressor is OK. Clutch may also be defective. If the compressor comes on and off intermediately, it is low of refrigerant.

If the compressor is not coming on at all it could be that you are low of refrigerant and just need to add some more.
