I just completed bypassing my AC compressor and needed the correct belt but I could not find a definitive answer. The belt I ended up using is 78" long. Part numbers are:

Napa 25060780

Goodyear/Gatorback 4060780

Some others might be 780K6

I just wanted to BUMP this because I've been searching for the answer to what length an AC delete belt is, and it took me an hour to find the right thread!

Thanks reverand.

Compressor Replacement or Bypass

Reverand - What method or product did you use to eliminate your compressor, and did you notice any gains?

Will this work on a 2003 with the 2 L Zetec? There are a few other posts about this topic, but, insofar as I could tell, none were specific to the 2003-2004, which looks to be a bit different.

yes just ask for a belt for the zetec with no a/c
Excellent; the car's ready to pickup from the mechanic, and my bill is almost $200 less thanks to that top-tip. Much obliged, gentlemen! [cheers]

Now, time to build up the courage to attempt a DIY a/c compressor replacement myself...

No Problem!

You need an A/C compressor?

Yes indeed, the compressor froze up and shredded the accessory belt; in addition to the $235 for a new accessory belt and tensioner, the mechanic wanted $280 to put in a used compressor (which wouldn't be connected back to the AC system, would just be a big bypass pulley, which he said wasn't available for this car), or $830 to put in a new compressor and get the AC working. At 192,000 miles in MN, functional AC via a mechanic would seem to be a bad investment.

So yeah, you actually saved me almost $300... at least until I install a new compressor myself and break something else that requires professional attention.

I have a 2.0 Zetec that originally had A/C, and I just took off the compressor, and mounted up a non-A/C belt.

Dayco p/n 755K6. Luck!
