you may need to remove your AC compressor and install a bypass pulley first....ask your parts store

i did call autoparts store.they dont have a bypass pully .i will have to build a bracket and mount a pully or put a shorter belt on to bypass the ac compressor.compressor is $200.00 a belt is $25.00-$30.00.what is the length of the belt i should use to bypass the ac compressor?

you will need to look it up in the chart for bypassing pulleys in a vehicle...they have all those sizes, in case you want to bypass a broken ac compressor.
