FORD EXPLORER AIR CONDITIONER PROBLEM

1996 Ford Explorer • 200,000 miles

My air conditioner compressor clutch will no longer engage bearing seem to be going out so it gets very hot and starts burning serpentine belt. I am broke at this time and can not afford an air conditioner compressor so I am wondering if there is a shorter serpentine belt I can install and bypass the pulley on the compressor for the time being

There is a bypass for the ac compressor. Remove the compressor, go to a parts store and a company called dorman makes a bolt in replacement pulley so you can use the stock belt till you can replace the compressor
