Shorter drive belt size?
Posted 27 March 2018 - 12:17 PM
As per my other post, I need to change the alternator and thought it a good time to put a shorter belt on to bypass the compressor with the whining pulley bearing. Thing is I can't find the info in the search for the right serpentine belt size for this. Can anybody give some advice?

I have a belt that bypasses the compressor and also the extra idler pulley. If this will be the same as what you need then I will get the length from it.

Assuming you talking about the 2.2 diesel and assuming the extra pulley has been removed then you need a PK1425 belt to bypass the AC compressor.

2004 2.4 litre ...
What I did was wrap a piece of string around the pulleys and then measured it. Worked for me.

I had to change mine last week. New unit from ECP and belt. Pk 1784 was belt size. Took about 2 hours total time have to reroute the belt if removing idler pulley.
Surely that's the length for a diesel???

I did this on a 2.2 by wrapping a piece of string around the pulleys and then measuring it.
Worked fine for me.
