Bypass ac compressor 2006 saturn vue

\015 I have an AC compressor that is not turning. Is there a way to bypass the AC Compressor with a shorter belt? Would I need any additional parts to complete this repair besides the new (shorter) belt?\012\012I can not afford the $1700 the machanic quoted to have it repaired for a few months. I do need my 2006 Saturn Vue to travel back and forth to work.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 16-10-2017

Answers :

I doubt it but I would have to see it in person to say for sure.
If nothing is in the way between the pulley before and the pulley after the compressor, you could use a shorter belt. How much shorter would be something you would have to try to measure.
On the rare occasions when a vehicle comes without ac, the factory puts a dummy pulley in the place of the compressor. I think all Saturn Vue cars had ac.
You say the compressor won't turn, but you really mean the clutch on the compressor ??
