I have a 2006 sonata 3.3 v6. What length does the
serpentine belt have to be to bypass the ac

It is probably not possible but look for a bypass kit as you will probably need to add an idler wheel.


When I dot have my the ac on the clutch doesn’t move and has a terrible running noise, but when I do turn the ac on then it starts spinning, ac blows cold but there’s a rubbing noise ( less severe) coming from the compressor clutch. What could be the issue?
