I do not believe its going to work with a smaller belt
it will interfere with the tensioner

So the only way for me to get my car back on the road is to repair the (very expensive) A/C? Who's the engineer who thought that was a good idea?

I experienced a similar AC problem last May. The mechanic advised to do exactly what you describe - bypass the AC with a shorter belt. We did it and it worked fine until such time as I could actually get the AC fixed. I was halfway to Pennsylvania from Alabama and HAD to continue my trip. This AC bypass saved my trip and cost under $200. Sorry I didn't read your question until 10/11/2008.
