2005 Ford Escape Q&A

2005 Ford Escape Question: is there any way to by pass a locked up compressor

My air compressor clutch fan is completely locked up. Just wondering if i could bypass it for now to get my truck back to driving it -
Answer 1
Will the pulley still turn, the pylley not the center clutch hub? If the part that the belt runs on will still spin unplug compressor elect connector and try a new belt. If it is locked up as well seek a repair shop. -
