: 94 SLS Air Conditioner

09-08-04, 10:39 AM
Help! My air conditioner started making a bad knock yesterday. I got the vehicle home but the A/C pump is smoking and making a bad scraping sound.

I have two questions.

1. How hard is it to replace the a/c pump?

2. Can I bypass the pump with a smaller serpentine belt?

Here is a thread that will describe how to change the A/C compressor.
Yes you can bypass the Compressor with a shorter belt. Check the following thread.
