2002 Windstar Ac Compressor Issue.
I have a question about my 2002 Windstar Compressor. The pulley on it is very wobbly and makes a loud noise. (it is not plugged in and the system has been discharged) I have a brand new compressor and was wondering since the belt has to go around this , would it hurt the new compressor to just put it on, leave it unplugged and the lines capped until next year? I am scared the pulley is going to fall apart and cause my belt to fly off.
Also is it possible to use a shorter belt and just bypass it altogether? If so does anyone know what size?
