Re: Belt tension!

Does the ac compressor pivot to tension belt?
Or is there spring loaded tensioner?
Why not just leave ac compressor in place?

Re: Belt tension!

Removing the AC compressor is quite an involved procedure. It's not just a case of taking everything out that's not needed. Information is on the web, sorry can't do link, but the answers are out there.

I know that I cant remove everything that's not needed, but I have seen Fiat coupe models that don't have A/C compressor!

Yes of course there are models without AC, but if I'm reading you correctly there are things you need, & follow to make your car without AC. I cannot do the link, but look for Fiat Coupe forum, you will find all information there.

Re: Belt tension!

The ac compressor takes no power from engine at all when ac turned off(or not working)
If you take it off environmentally damaging chemicals are released, unless you have system professionally degassed.

Just leave it where it is and you have a car that works with a property tensioned belt.

Good luck Jack.
