My AC compressor is shot and clutch is burnt up. Is there any way to bypass that on 2006 Ford Five Hundred

I already snapped 2 belts before I realized pulley was not moving. Is there a way to bypass without replacing the compressor. Every answer I have found is telling me no but I think it's bs I have to purchase a $300 part I don't care about to get my whole car to run.

It looks like the belt won't route without rubbing.
