Doesn't fit 1996 2.3L Ranger

      Comments about Dorman - Help Air Conditioning Bypass Pulley:

      Purchased to do a quick fix on a 1996 Ranger 2.3L until the weather warmed up. Unfortunately the pulley diameter is smaller and the fitment for the third bolt was incorrect so had to return it. If you are looking to bypass a/c on this particular model, just buy the belt for the application without a/c. Don't event have to remove the compressor. Price for the belt was the same as this bypass kit. Once the weather warms up, fix the a/c compressor clutch and should be good to go. I will say I appreciate being able to return with no issues.

      Comments about Dorman - Help Air Conditioning Bypass Pulley:

      once you get your ac system drained by a professional (don't let it escape into the air)it is kinda simple to install you just need to be able to figure what all the bushings and spacers are for. I only needed on long bushing and the 3 similar bolts for my application. In the instructions it did not state what the large bolt/stud is for or the 6 bushings and the one spacer are for.

          A:

          I would recommend that you check with the nearest Advance Auto store before you buy the Serpentine belt. Take the old belt to the store with you so that they can match up the correct number of grooves. For any further assistance please feel free to call 1-877-238-2623 and one of our representatives will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

      • Q:

        Hello,
        I read in the review that the bolt holes do not line up making it impossible to mount this correctly. Is this true? I would be placing this on a '96 F-150.
        Thanks

          A:

          The brackets replace the air conditioner compressor with a bypass pulley and bracket that even maintain the OEM-length belt, saving more costly repairs. It can be easily mounted without any modifications.
