Can I drive my Mitsubishi Galant 2001 without an AC compressor?

Asked by Jun 01, 2017 at 11:25 PM about the 2001 Mitsubishi Galant

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello!! My mitsubishi galant 2001 AC compressor has broken, it burnt the belt
entirely off. Now my AC does not work nor does the power steering. I do not
want to spend the money on a new AC compressor so I am wondering if there
is a way to drive the car without the compressor but with power steering??
Thank you!

I just looked it up they have them in-stock for the 2.4l, Power steering belt w/o Air Condition. If you have the 3.0l just check the site or may ask your local parts store for a with out the a/c or a/c delete belt.

If that doesn't work have the counter person check to see if Dorman makes a compressor delete pulley assembly, then you can just discharge the system and remove the compressor completely, just make sure that you seal the A/C system hoses in case you want to have it fixed at a later date. HTH
