Thread: Bypass the AC compressor with a shorter serpentine belt?

    Well, that would be easier to install!

    I went with the part number posted in post #29

    G.I.G.O.?

    I guess the gates K060355 would fit too at 35.56"/903mm.
    When I install new belts I often have to back the tensioner bolt off all the way and push the alternator til the wiring is squished past the intake manifold.

    If you get a wild hair one night, I call dibs on at least the condenser hose. Could be convinced to pay money for all of it it need be. LMK.

    Just wanted to say things to everyone in this post. The AC Compressor seized up and broke the serpentine belt and wasn't drive able. I was able to go to the local auto parts store, pick up the K060355 belt and bypass the compressor completely, allowing me a little bit of time before I need to get that replaced!

    Copied from thread:

    https://mirageforum.com/forum/showth...light=1340A146






    The correct belt for Mirage with A/C has 6 ribs and a length of 1240mm.
    Some makers offer a length of 1238mm which fits just as good.

    Gates part: 6PK 1238

    Contitech part: 6PK1240


    For cars without A/C the belt also has 6 ribs but a length of 906mm.

    Contitech part: 6PK906
