The bearing in the ac compressor is sounding like it's on it's way out. I was wondering if I could buy the smaller belt for a Sunfire without ac and use it to bypass the ac compressor. It's winter in New England so if I could put off buying the whole compressor until the summer that would be lovely.

I just want to make sure it's not going to ruin anything.

Same issue bypass..

We need to make the same change to our belt. . Just wondering if that was an acceptable fix. Just rerouting the belt to skip the air compressor.. Is it still working ok .. What would be the pro of getting a bypass pulley?

Mel, its basicaly a pulley that goes in place of the compressor. Sangel, the only pro I can see is using the same length belt. And maybe a little more contact area for the water pump.
