So I was driving today and smelled a burning smell. I pulled over and popped the hood, and saw that the a/c pulley was smoking pretty badly, it was making kind of a grinding/screeching noise. Im guessing the bearing are shot and it needs to be replaced. But I was just wondering if the a/c can be taken out of the belt routing with a shorter belt? Would I just opt for the non a/c belt? I never use a/c anyhow and its almost winter time. Thanks!
