I don't see why we would do this. Here's why.

There's a clutch at the front end so when the AC is off there is little power loss as this behaves much like an idler pulley.

But I doubt anyone has the belt specs so you will likely have to go at this the old fashioned way. It uses the usual cloth tape measure. I see this site describe the process.

OK, so now you have the outside length and just need to find the belt type or code and see if you can find it.

Hi, Plaxton; There are some manufacturers that make a kit to bypass the A/C. We've installed several, mainly on Chrysler Products. Otherwise, you would have to remove the compressor and find a belt by trial and error if a kit is not available. But.....when routing the replacement belt, make sure all the pulleys are turning the correct way, which you will have to determine prior.
Good luck.
