What size belt? No clue but you can ask your parts store what size belt the same car/engine/year model without A/C uses. They might even show the belt routing. You may or may not have to remove the A/C tensioner pulley and bracket. HTH

Thanks DeltaP, but I was hoping someone had done this before & could tell me the belt size. I think the same same car engine (3.1L GM) without air has a dummy pulley in place of the AC compressor, I may be wrong?
