2009 Hyundai Sonata Question: a/c compressor seized,broke belt.can car operate without a/c compressor?

Unplug comp. elect. connector does comressor belt PULLEY turn? Not the center but the part the belt runs on. Clutch hub can be removed if need be, then if pulley is free the compressor becomes just an idler! - pushrod
if the clutch and/or pulley on your compressor are okay, yes, you can continue to operate your vehicle without any issues...without a compressor you will need a bypass pulley and special length of belt. - your.mechanic
