Air Conditioning problem
2001 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Automatic
My compressor has gone out therefore cause the compressor pulley to lock up and broke my serpetine belt. I went to Advance Auto and tried to get a a belt to bypass the compressor pulley but was told that there was not one. Is there any belt out there that will work so that I can bypass the compressor pulley so that I can get my car running for now? If so can I get a diagram on how to install the belt whille bypassing the compressor pulley?
First of all thank you so much for your donation. What is the 8th digit of your vin that will tell me what engine you have. They make a/c bypass pulley's for your car. Let me know so I can get you that info.
