Check with the dealer on that. Sometimes you can if your vehicle and engine came out without A/C as an option.

Another possibility is to look for an "A/C delete pulley", where you remove the compressor and install a free wheeling pulley on the compressor mounting bracket. Then you can use your belt without looking for a smaller belt. They are made for some applications, and may be adding vehicles all the time. Try a few parts stores and see if you can find one. May try rockauto.com-they have a huge inventory.

Can I use a short serpentine belt. AC compressor isn't working.


I have a 2000 E430. I just did this job because my ac compressor froze. I went to O'reilly and bought a serpentine belt 6pk2310.(different brand has it as k0910). The numbers after the part number is the length in mm or inches. Eg. 0910 = 91 inches == 2810mm. Just follow the diagram and bypass the ac compressor. Tools: 15mm wrench for the pulley tensioner. It took me 5 minutes to do this job and be on the road again. It is very easy.
On the Right is the normal diagram.

On the left is how you bypass the AC compressor on a E320/E430 2000-2002 engine.

It could be the belt, but also be the bearings squealing, it will lock the compressor down and snap that belt. But you can bypass the compressor with a smaller belt.

Just had this exact same problem with my car. Sears Automotive said that it may just be simpler to get a smaller belt and bypass the compressor. Talked to someone at another store and they suggested the same thing instead of spending a ton of money to replace the compressor. So in short, yes and that is confirmed by two mechanics.
