A shorter belt and skipping the A/C can throw off the routing of the belt and possibly put a ribbed side of the belt on an smooth-sided idler and the opposite, put the smooth side where the ribbed side should be. It's better - if you want to save the expense of replacing the compressor or clutch to get an idler and use same belt

$40 --- less expensive than another belt and NAPA or most any parts store will have it. Just will take some work.. couple hours

Wouldn't work anyway. A shorter belt would interfere with other pulleys

Kelly is right... you will spend time and money and not have A/C when for just a little more you can fix the problem
