    Comments about Dorman - Help Air Conditioning Bypass Pulley:

    This was an easy replacement for an Air conditioner delete. However, that is where the good stops. The bolts that come with it do not fit factory threads, there is a gap between the lower mount area that needs several washers, but nothing comes with the kit to resolve this issue when using factory bolts. It does not tell you that you will need a bigger belt as well when making the swap.

      Comments about Dorman - Help Air Conditioning Bypass Pulley:

      the back bolt hole simply would not line up and had to be drilled, the belt that was on the van had to be replaced as it was a half inch shy of fitting, the pulley had a bit of play, the item I bought had been installed and returned you could see it had been bolted on but was undamaged idk if this was a 1 time misfit but even with the extra work and belt was better than a new compressor

      This product did not fit properly and had to be shimmed in order to align the belt. Never properly worked. Picked up a used AC compressor at a junk yard. AC still not working but belt alignment is now perfect. I would have given this 0 stars but it wouldn't let me.

        AC compressor went on a 15yr old Voyager and I didn't want to pop for a new/ used one. Bolted right in using parts that were included.

          I was working on a '99 Dodge Grand Caravan for my son. He had a terrible noise coming from under the engine compartment. The A/C compressor clutch bearing had went out and was grinding. Being short on money like he was, this by-pass unit was recommended. It bolted right up. I had to use the existing bolts to mount it. The bolts that came with the unit were to small. The only draw back was that I had to purchase a longer belt. Got the belt and installed it, noise gone. Thanks for the recommendation!!
