88.50 in belt
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.
found this bypass pulley: http://www.1aauto.com/1A/ACBypassPulley/Dodge/GrandCaravan/1AEPM00050/1089407
It transfers the crankshaft rotation to the alternator, water pump, ac compressor, and power steering pump.
With a compressor bypass kit from a part store.
You can't bypass with a belt alone. You have to by a bypass pulley kit. The new pulley takes the place of the ac compressor and you use the same size belt.
Bypass the air conditioning on a 1998 Dodge Stratus with a smaller serpentine belt.
Its 15mm on my '97
It typically costs between $100 and $150 to replace the serpentine belt on a Dodge Dakota. The belt costs around $30 with the rest being labor.
The serpentine belt on a 2003 Dodge Dakota is replaced by loosening the belt tensioner and slipping the belt off. It can then be removed from the engine accessories and a new belt installed.
What year is the Dakota and what is the make and model of the 1998 Dodge that the compressor came off of ????????
Between and under the alternator and ac compressor.
