2000 Honda Accord Question: alternator belt
Answer #1patrick mannion from Greg Solow's Engine Room, September 21, 2009, 23:02Master
The alternator is above the air conditioning compressor it is not possible for the compressor to be bypassed using a shorter belt as the compressor gets in the way. I have been able to do it on some other cars. Perhaps if the compressor was removed a shorter belt would fit as that belt is adjusted using the tensioner bolt mounted on the alternator bracket.
