Hi, New here and very car unsavvy.
So I have a 2005 Accord Estate CTDI.
The air con pump, after whining for a year finally seized solid yesterday causing the serpantine belt to go up in smoke.
I have heard you can fit a smaller belt that simply leaves out the air con pump (I will leave it fitted to car but it never worked anyway).

Can anyone tell me the code for the correct belt to enable me to do this please?

I found some info on here on an old thread but it was for petrol and I have the 2.2 diesel.

Many thanks

Thank you… I did see this but did not follow it properly… did not twig they were getting the shorter one and bypassing the AC as the diagram with it still showed the belt around the ac pump but just with a tensioner removed. Have I read it wrong?
It just read it as a mod to save the life of the alternator bearings , removing the tensioner but still going round the ac pulley… I don’t want to do that as my ac has seized solid.
