My ac compressor is going out I think I can bypass it. Right now I am still driving it but the ac compressor makes a lot of noise and smokes.
Unplug the wire connector at the compressor clutch coil.! That will disable the compressor and then it becomes just an idler for the belt! That should work as long as the bearing is ok!!
