I have a 2006 sonata 3.3 v6. What length does the
serpentine belt have to be to bypass the ac

4 Answers


It is probably not possible but look for a bypass kit as you will probably need to add an idler wheel.


When I dot have my the ac on the clutch doesn’t move and has a terrible running noise, but when I do turn the ac on then it starts spinning, ac blows cold but there’s a rubbing noise ( less severe) coming from the compressor clutch. What could be the issue?

bad bearings in your compressor, happened to me, that's why I am here, looking for info on how to bypass the AC unit.

I just pass compressor with 82" belt. No AC but car runs much better.
