Hey everyone,

Answering my own question after searching and not seeing the answer. Have a 2013 Kia Sportage 2.4l and the A/C clutch went out. The parts were not available, and I needed to be able to drive it, so I replaced the belt with a shorter one bypassing the A/C compressor entirely. The belt I used is Gates K060658 6 rib 66 3/8” belt.

Hope this helps someone else.

Hi,

Thank you for the information. I feel confident it will help. What would help also is a pic of how the belt is run now. Is that a possibility?

Take care, and please feel free to come back anytime in the future.
