Why do you want to bypass it? Is the unit froze up? If not, try unplugging the unit form the electrical source. It should still turn but not kick in unless the compressor is froze.

2001 impala 3.8 liter belt size to bypass AC unit


You can also remove the a/c compressor and install a bypass pulley in its place. You can still use the standard belt this way, just run it to the bypass pulley instead of the a/c compressor. RockAuto has them at the link.

Can i use a smaller serpentine belt if i bypass the air conditioning unit?


In some cases this can be done-but you do not mention the engine you have-also, there are bypass pullleys that some sellers have for just such circumstances, google bypass pulleys for your engine-you sometimes can do this yourself if you keep in mind the rotation of all pulleys has to remain the same,

The Air conditioning unit pulley seized up. What is the name of the part? What can i do to replace it?


It's the A/C clutch pulley. There is a special tool required to remove and replace it. You may want to check around for prices on the whole unit. you may spend more for the clutch and tool than the compressor.

You need to pull out the timing cover. 4-6 hours of work. Here is the step to remove the Cover, then you need to remove the Sprockets.
moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.png
  1. Remove the oil pan.
  2. Remove the power steering belt if so equipped.
  3. Remove the air conditioning belt, compressor and bracket if so equipped.
  4. Remove the fan clutch (fluid coupling), with the fan and water pump pulley.
  5. Matchmark and remove the crankshaft pulley(s). This bolt will be very tight. Use the counter-holding bar, properly installed, to hold the crankshaft while loosening the bolt. Use the pulley extractor or gear puller to remove the pulley from the shaft.
  6. Remove the water bypass pipe.
  7. Remove the fan belt adjusting bar. If necessary, remove the lower power steering bracket for access.
  8. Disconnect the heater water outlet pipe.
  9. Unbolt the timing chain cover assembly. Be careful to loosen only the correct bolts.

To install:
  1. Install new gaskets over the dowels on the timing chain cover. Slide the cover assembly over the dowels and pump spline. Insert the retaining bolts and tighten them. Tighten the 8mm bolts to 9 ft. lbs. (13 Nm) and the 10mm bolts to 29 ft. lbs. (39 Nm).
  2. Temporarily install the adjusting bar to the alternator. Install the adjusting bar to the chain cover and tighten the bolts to 9 ft. lbs. (13 Nm).
  3. Install the heater water outlet pipe.
  4. Install the water bypass pipe.
  5. Install the crankshaft pulley and bolt. Use the counter-holding tool to hold the pulley and tighten the bolt to 116 ft. lbs. (157 Nm). If equipped with air conditioning, install the second crankshaft pulley.
  6. Install the water pump pulley and fluid coupling with the fan.
  7. Adjust the tension on the drive belts.
  8. Install the air conditioning compressor bracket, compressor and belt if they were removed.
  9. Install the power steering belt and adjust it.
  10. Attach the oil pan.
  11. Install the radiator.

Can i bypass the air conditioning compresser with a smaller serpentine belt?


No. There is a tensioner pulley which controls the tightness of a serpentine belt. In addition, the belt travels a specific path. Bypassing the air conditioning compressor not only requires a different size belt, it would require rerouting the belt and omitting one component would mess up the travel of the belt and may actually result in reversing the rotation of some of the components that the belt turns. In addition, the belt tensioner is designed specifically for that length and size of belt. You would most likely affect the belt tension, which would result in slippage or overtightness. Overtightness on the bearings of the devices the belt controls will cause that unit to sieze.

Broken v belt and pulley for air conditioning .I am getting conflicting information about replacing the air con pulley.Can the air con pulley be supplied on it's own part or do I have to buy the power...


I would put the whole unit with the pulley because you will need special tools that cost more than the money you would save to remove the old pulleys, also the bearings may be damaged.-why did the belt break! I would look very closley at you crankshaft damper and make sure the rubber insert did not come apart and groove out your front cover- it is a common problem with these type of engines. also your compressor has no clutch it is a continuos running compressor that changes the stroke of the pistion via a wobble plate so I think the only way to get this compressor is with a clutch. Every p.s. pump I have replaced on that model always came with a pulley on it-you just need to swap the reservoirs and install a new "0' ring.
