@  davidkrocks : (31 January 2015 - 10:42 AM) okay, totally, I will see if my mechanic can measure it out. I figure that it will be easiest to eliminate the ac altogether than try throwing more money into a used ac compressor install
@  KennyL : (31 January 2015 - 08:28 AM) I just measured mine on the 00 2.4, and there's a belt size for it on the forums, but I don't know if anyone's ever documented the 2nd gen size. Probably best to take a string and measure, but make sure you leave enough room to both get the belt on and have some tension adjustment.
@  davidkrocks : (30 January 2015 - 02:08 PM) hey, where can I find a the ac compressor belt bypass for a 05 2.4l 4dr stratus?
@  KennyL : (30 January 2015 - 12:03 PM) Best of all, you can do this inside of $200. Making it speed sensitive requires the building of some sort of microcontroller that interfaces with your VSS or speedometer signal and mimics what the pot is doing, but a static adjustment should do well for most people. You could even have it on an easily accessible toggle and manually trigger it or have it hooked to a gear based switch with the 5 speed. Power steer in 1 and reverse but once you get rolling it's turned off. The DIY electrical engineering possibilities to trigger it are endless.
@  KennyL : (30 January 2015 - 11:58 AM) Guys are doing this in old Mustangs and the like, so it should make a power steer pump deleted Stratus turn like butter. Especially my superlight build, heh.
@  KennyL : (30 January 2015 - 11:57 AM) 1: obtain power steer assist motor assembly from 02-07 Vue/05-07 Equinox/Pontiac Torrent/03-06 Ion (metal controller case only). 2: fabricate the assembly into your steering column. 3: wire up using the controller box and adjustment potentometer. 4: Set desired power steering assist or even turn off if you want.
@  KennyL : (30 January 2015 - 11:53 AM) I found a fairly "beater status" way of deleting your power steering, but retaining power steering. DIY electronic power steer assist! http://forums.vintag...d-ever-eps.html http://www.ebay.com/...S-/171027023129

I already have the drivers side air bag and also the passangers side one as well i have the air bag control mod i was just wondering on the install of the bags and other parts that i need to install these bags. I would love it if someone had a service manuall handy so i can look at it. And it would be better if someone had it online.

Seems like kind of a small hit (as far as seeing the damage on the RF of the vehicle) for the airbags to deploy. But then, that cement barrier looks like it took one heck of an impact.

I can't vouch for the driver's side airbag - I've never messed with it. I'd presume that replacing it would have something to do with the screwholes in the back of the steering wheel.

As for the passenger airbag it's like 4 really long screws that you have to take out that are accessible only from inside the glovebox (release the catch hooks on the sides so that the glove box spills of all its contents onto the passenger-side floor).

When you're re-installing the airbags be sure your battery is disconnected and maybe even have the airbag control module disconnected as well (under the front center consol).

Good luck with it. Someone help me out with the driver's side airbag. I don't really know what I'm talking about with that one.

not sure on replacing those but I would pull the fuses, disconnect the battery, anything you can do to be 100% sure they arent going to deploy in your face

If you don't find the answer here soon...I'd check your nearest library. You're paying city taxes for the libraries so ya might as well use them. :yes: They should have the Haynes manual for ya.

this is from the haynes manuel i will type it out for yeah...i know i am a nice guy

REMOVAL (use this in opposite to install cept remember to disable the system first)

Disconnect the negative battery cable from the ground stud on the left shock tower....wait 2 minutes to make sure the back up system turns off 2


open glove box,xqueeze the side-walls in and hing the glove box door all the way down

remove the four nuts securing the airbag to the top of the instrument panel

remove the two screws securing the airbag to the support structure

lift the airbag module up and disconnect module electrical connector and remove the airbag module
WARNING: carry the airbag with the trim cover side facing AWAY from your body to minimize injury if the airbag accidentally deploys.

remove instrument cluster hood

remove knee bolster

remove two screws from the lower steering column cover and separate the covers

ensure that the electrical connector is joined securely. tighten screws and nuts.

turn ignition switch to the off position then turn it to the on position. The airbag light should stay on 6-8 seconds then goes out indicating the airba system is functioning properly. If the lamp fails to light, blinks on and off or stays on, there is a malfunction in the system. If any of these conditions exist, the vehicle should be diagrnoes by a dealer service or repair shop....hope that helps

FYI, when replacing the driver's side air bag, Chrysler says you're supposed to install a new clockspring as well...
