Simply unbolt the compressor and toss, along with hoses and condenser in front of radiator. But then you have to put an idler pulley in place of compressor. A shorter belt won't work because skipping a pulley either puts the ribbed side of belt on the wrong side of everything else, or spins it in opposite direction....that won't do.. Smooth side= idler/tensioner, ribbed is alternator, power steering, water pump. Do a Google search for "Idler pulley replacement for A/C 5.7L Chevy C/K" There are lots
