My A/C compressor left a big puddle of bright green dyed oil under it, so I think it's probably done for. I assume that it'll be fine if I disconnect the clutch so it can't engage (in case it tries to seize up), but just in case, I'd like to have a belt handy to bypass it.

Anybody know the length I need offhand? I don't want to dig around in there if I can help it. I have enough other stuff to do.

Another quick method to prevent unwanted clutch engagement is to pull the fuse/relay etc (not sure which it is) in the under hood compartment.

I know the measurement of the belt is in the part number. I want to say its in centimeters. I want to say its the last few digits in the part number. You can use some string and measure it, and then see if the parts store has a belt around that number via part number. That's how I did it when I installed my UDP and ODP.

Millimeters actually... well, who knows though with different brands.

No problem. I'm just trying to help him out. Thanks for the correction. I wasn't sure. I'm definitely missing my stratus...I need to get it running again. I have to sell my turbo set up first however. I'm just going to go with a 10.5 bottom end and big cams.
