Default A/C Delete

I have a 99.5 TDi and the A/C clutch sounds like its going to lock up any day now, So I want to do a A/C delete but I have not seen any write ups on it.

Any one have a link or info on this subject like if I need a relay pulley or just a smaller serpentine belt.

Any help at all would be grate.

Thanks.

Update:

I bought the Bypass bracket and pulley (http://www.am-autoparts.com/AM/Pulle...ogle_base_feed)

Installed it.

It works like a dream. Only thing is I had to run down to ACE ( cause I heard that its the place ) and get some longer bolts and nuts.

This is my dally driver (500 miles a week) and I have been driving it with the bypass for 2 weeks now with no issues.

Heat still works too.

Thanks for the help guys!!! I'm back to 28 dollars a week in fuel instead of 40 in my wife's Vibe.

Thanks for the info.

So that belt thats available on impex, would you happen to know the specs?

I wana give it a go this weekend.

I will replace the clutch wheel before summer comes along here in OK again, any one have a place I can start looking for one.

I tried TDIparts or the store formally known as TDIparts and Impex and they dont seem to have the part.

Thanks for the help again.

I think you will need bracket for p/steering pump. I don't thin none of US models came with out A/C . I think only Canadian and Europe models has that.
Here is clutch :
http://www.worldimpex.com/parts/genu...utch_8429.html
Only OE clutch you can put in car.
I can get you that clutch also for $10 less of impex price. All you have to do drive to Dallas TX.If you want it you can send me PM.
Belt size should be 6 PK 906.

I found this A/C bypass pulley for 50 bucks.

Only thing is that its not exactly for a 99.5 TDI.

Do you guys think it will work for my car?

Here is the link:

Air Conditioning in the Colder states and Canada are a waste. I say chuck the extra weight if you can. Great thread.

Default Still not sure

So its been a while now since I updated, Im still not sure if this pulley bypass will fit my car.

There has to be someone that has done this before, anyone know if this has been done on a 99.5 Jetta before?

I could just order the part and try to adapt it but there are allot of variables to consider.

Thanks for any input.

This is for MK III.But I think it would work. Belt is same 6PK on Mk III and MK IV. Just a length is different. Only thing is does bolts has same diameter at mounting bracket. I would risk $48 and try.

I've had this pulley on my 2001 Jetta for over 100,000 miles. It's worked well, although the bearing did crap out about 20,000 miles ago. Pressed in a new, better quality bearing and have been fine since. You do need a longer bolt to install on mk4

Do you remove the AC compressor and bolt the pulley on and use the factory belt?? If not where does it fit? my clutch is done and the AC hasn't worked in years I just want to get running again.

Thx

I just installed this a/c bypass pulley on a 2000 VW golf. I don't consider this a bolt in installation. I had to remove some metal from the pulley bracket and shim the bracket to get the pulley to line up with the rest of the pulleys.
