Options

  1. Replace the AC pulley bearing and disable the clutch by not installing it or by unplugging it
  2. You can not bypass the AC compressor, the way the belt is laid out the tensioner would not be able to make the belt tight.
  3. Remove the compressor and install a bypass pulley in its place, which is a pulley and bracket.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
