    1994 Deville 4.9 (Serpentine Belt) - Save Me From the Junk Yard

    My serpentine belt just went on my 1994 Deville. The cause was a siezed A/C Compressor.

    According to my to my local guy, they don't make a serpentine belt that will bypass the A/C Compressor. Basically, It's going to cost $1200 to replace the compressor and it going again. With 250,000 on it I'm not into that.

    Is there a special after-market belt out there that will bypass the A/C?

    You cannot bypass the AC just look at the geometry of pulleys and you'll see - no way1 It is not about a shorter belt.

    What if you just replace the bearing or whatever siezed rather than whole AC compressor?
