My air conditioning compressor froze and my serpentine belt broke. Is there anyway to reroute the belt so that I don't have to replace the compressor?

Try a smaller belt and see if you can find one that will line up with it right and just bypass it. I dont reccommend that but sometimes thats what it takes.

I woudl suggest use a air compressor pump eliminator, basically replacees the air compressor with a idler pulley.

I've asked a few people and no one knows what the air compressor pump eliminator. I'm trying to get my air compressor turned into a pulley but can't seem to get anyone to do it on a 1998 oldsmobile intrigue.
