98tj94 They sell ac bypass pulleys at orileys for $43, I just got one today due to my a/c clutch making a constant winding noise

Kevbz I actually keep a spare belt in the jeep and its a non a/c belt. in case the clutch bearing were to freeze and burn the belt up, I can swap and keep driving. Any other pulley and you've got issues to deal with, but not getting home because of an a/c compressor would suck.

geiman Yes, you can do that without any issue; before I turned my A/C compressor into an air compressor on my 2.5l I ran the non-A/C belt for quite a while.

s3nt3nc3d As far as I know, that would work...if the compressor pulley is still spinning fine when not engaged, what I was able to do in my old Dakota was just unplug the sensor on the evaporator. With that unplugged, the compressor would no longer cycle when I had the blower on.

Remember though without your compressor...if you use defrost a lot in the colder months, the compressor normally runs then as well to help remove the moisture from the windshield. So if you need it for that purpose, it'd be in your best interest to just fix the compressor.

bypass AC????

Is it okay to simply bypass a malfunctioning AC compressor in a 2000 with a 4cyl? Would it be okay just to get a belt for a non AC model and run it? Jus wondering if there is more to it than that?
