good afternoon my name is ***** ***** I will assist the correct way to do this is to remove the ac compressor from the van. there is a replacement pulley that bolts directly to where the ac compressor goes. then you can use the same belt and all will be good. removing it requires re routing of the belt and changes tensions on the other pulleys causing issues down the road. you can get the bypass pulley at any parts store. it is a common repair.
