Default A/C

I think my a/c pully is going bad because its making a grinding noise.... i was wondering is it worth buyin a new pully? i dont really use the a/c anyways it would be nice but it has a leak in the system sumwhere too.... now the question is.. should i buy the whole new system (i have the money too) or should i go got that pully that INTENSE has that is nothing but a pully? or i been told that i could just get a smaller belt and bypass it??? i dont know if thats possbile... but i would like your guys advice since you guys know about this stuff then i do... thanks Nick

You can get one at autozone for 40 bucks, called an AC delete bracket, I believe that advanced has them as well, they both need to be ordered. I just replaced the bearing in mine because it was cheaper. However it might not be the easiest thing for you to do because the bearing needs to be pressed in and out......

Yeah, how did that end up working out for you, Chris? I don't remember your end result.

Personally, if you are confident you won't ever need/want your A/C again, I would opt for the A/C delete bracket. It removes dead weight and should actually provide some small amount less resistance than an A/C pulley, IMO.
