Re: Disonecting AC compressor in 1996 Geo Prism

have not seen how the belts are on a '96.but you can see if it has one serpentine belt that pulls everything or if you have three for power steering,one for the alternator and one for the a/c compressor.the bearing has probably siezed on the a/c pulley and you can replace the bearing.but look at the way the belts run and if you have a seperate belt going to the a/c and don't want to fool with repairing the bearing the belt is probably burned with the pulley seizing up .so if you don't want to remove the other belts to get at the a/c belt just cut it off.just be sure it doesn't pull anything else.i have a '92 toyota [same thing] and mine has 3 belts.
