Having problems with your GMC C1500 ?
Can i bypass aair conditinor pully with a diferent belt
Depending on the vehicle applicatio(i.e. model, engine, accesoriess, ect.) the most common fix for a bad ac compressor is a compressor bypass kit available for most vehicles. it ussually comes with a small braket and pulley that takes the place of your compressor. these ussualy use the same belt that was on your vehicle. word of caution here..... DO NOT vent the ac refridgerant !!!!! this is illeagal and can be dangerous. most shops will evacuate the ac system for a small fee.
Yes u can do this. i currently have mine bypassed right now. napa auto parts told me it couldnt be done and tried to sell me $100 pulley kit! screw that i went to carquest and the guy let me take home bout 20 different belts to try and i returned the ones i didnt need. i googled the diagram for the belt and printed it out...and a grooved side of the belt will pass onto a smooth side of pulley it was impossible to avoid it
