Hi all new here. Hope someone can give me some information. Have a 1998 2.0 scoripo air con unit has been making some grinding sounds. Most likely the back bearing is gone. My question is can I by pass it with a smaller belt and do away with the air con or do I need to still have the pump in motion to assist the other pullies thanks

as long as the other pullies all rotate in the correct direction (PAS, Water Pump etc) then a shorter belt is no problem. it is, in effect, no different to turning off the A/C

Better to measure around the remaining pulleys and then buy a belt that

is closest in length.

 

Too many variables by choosing from another model, the pulleys could be a

few mm larger or smaller which could make a big difference in the total length.
