Re: ac compressor vs ac clutch?

You might be able to get by with buying a belt for a 2005 Sedona without A/C if such an option existed. But sometimes the belt routing and idler pulley layout is different for non-A/C versions so you'd want to check your owner's manual for belt routing to see if that is the case for your car.

I looked for bypass pulleys but I don't think they make them for my van. I may just replace the compressor. How does one drain the refrigerent? And recharge? Ive not done that before.
