Default Cheap AC Bypass **PICTURE**

Recently my AC clutch seized up on me and I figured out a new route for the serpentine belt.
If your freezes up and you can't afford to get it fixed...use these instructions on this link to get your pulley and clutch off. I didn't have the pulley puller so i used a pry bar, hammer, a bit leverage, and lots of redbull.

The belt you will need is a 6-rib 82.5 inch length. $28ish

The attached picture shows the new route. I checked, and everything turns the right direction and I even did a 35 mile round trip right afterwards with no problems. You could probably use up to an 83.5 inch length because my tensioner pulley is at about 75% capacity....it should stretch out a little bit though.
