If you'd like to delete the A/C compressor from your vehicle, allowing your engine to rev faster and produce more power, this is the proper way to do it. By eliminating the A/C compressor you'll gain 7-10 HP and eliminate nearly 30 lbs of weight from your vehicle! Additionally, this kit allows you to properly eliminate your A/C compressor while retaining the power steering pump.

This kit includes a brand new power steering drive belt and idler pulley that installs using one of the existing bolt bosses on the a/c bracket.

Note: The belt we provide is intended for use with the stock crankshaft pulley. If you have an underdrive pulley installed on your vehicle, you will need to use a different belt than the one provided. The best way to determine which belt you need is to install the AC delete pulley, measure roughly how much smaller the new belt must be, and ask your local auto parts store to provide you with the required belt size for installation with an underdrive pulley.

If you would like to purchase the pulley or drive belt by itself, you may contact our offices to discuss pricing. You can also purchase a replacement belt from your local dealership with Mopar part number 04668444AE, or from your local auto parts store by referencing universal part number K040510.

    At the moment I have a small belt going from the crank pulley to the power steering pulley and no a/c pulley and when I turn the steering wheel the belt squeels and the power steering pump locks up.. I'm assuming this Is from not having enough tension on the belt... Will this kit provide more tension?

      You cannot delete your AC that way, and thats why your getting squealing noises and the power steering pump is not working. The whole reason this kit was made, was that your car has a automatic tensioner on it, and you need a pulley to make belt go to the original AC location and then around the tensioner. Without this, your belt is not tensioned, and it will not operate correctly.

      Sorry, because we have never had access to any export PT Cruisers we cannot verify what items will and will not work for you.

      No, this will not fit on a second gen Neon with 2.0. Only fits 03-05 Neon SRT-4, and 01-10 PT /GT Cruiser.

    will this work on a 2005 non-turbo PT Cruiser? If it does, how does it mount up? (I assume you remove the A/C Compressor & the kit provides a bracket with a pulley)?

      Yes, this works on all 2.4 turbo and 2.4 non turbo PT/ GT Cruisers and the Neon SRT-4. You remove the air conditioning compressor and then bolt this new pulley bypass onto one of the bolt holes in the block, and reroute the belt around the power steering, this pulley and crank. Alternator belt stays the same.
