Customer Question
I want to install...

I want to install a A/C dummy pulley on my 2003 Pontiac GP with a 3800 V6 nonsupercharged engine. Problem is no one has a pulley available for this model year. Is there one for another brand that will fit.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the Freon level?

A/C compressor is junk. What to install a dummy pulley.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Fit?

2003

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Fit yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. A/C compressor is out. Just need to bolt in the dummy pulley.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Yes. Problem is locating the part. I am OK on the installation portion.

Hello, I did some searching myself and it seems one is not readily available for this model. MY suggestion is to contact Dorman directly since they are the industry leader in manufacture of these. You can reach them by clicking HERE

My goal is to provide 5 star service. Rating/accepting does not cost extra and ensures I'm credited for my time and knowledge. It also does not close your question if you have a follow up concerning this. Thank you for using Just Answer!
