I had this on a 90 3800 engine and used a bypass pully from auto zone for $40 bucks same size as the compresser pully but you have otpull the compresser out first and install it in the same three mounting holes using the same three bolts.

Google Pontiac boneville ac compressor bypass pulley. There are a few places that sell a replacement pulley that goes in the spot of the compressor that allows use of the original serpentine belt.

They sell bypass pulleys but you may need to remove compressor to install (this I'm not sure about but looks like you have to.) I s there an easier fix?

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 can reroute the belt to bypass the ac compressor all you need to work out is how much shorter the belt is that you would require

User Avatar

I am unsure what you mean by bypass. The Air Conditioning system will not work with out the compressor. The compressor can be disabled by unplugging the electric clutch. Most of these little Fords could have a different length belt fitted so the compressor pulley didn't turn at all.

This is just a guess so take it with a grain of salt. I would buy a belt for the s10 without air conditioning and just bypass the air conditioning pump.

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.

User Avatar

yes you can!! just get a belt from auto parts place for your car without air...

User Avatar

There is an available bypass kit, but the belt is the same. You remove the ac compressor and install an idler pulley.

With a compressor bypass kit from a part store.

No, Have a look at the way the belt is. You cant just get a shorter belt and bypass the AC compressor as the belt would foul on the tensioner. u need a AC bypass pulley and bracket, and so far, i can only find these genuine

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.

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.
