V6 air con removal
Is it possible to remove the air con from a '98 v6? I Guess you would then need a shorter belt? I am interested in reducing weight and mechanical drag..
Thanks in advance..!
you can… I have thought about doing this for a while on mine but haven't gotten around to it...
I believe the belt size is 240 k5
Yeah its doable, like Mooneggs said you just need a smaller belt, just go to your local Halfords or something and get the belt for the 1.8 V6 without AC..
I think I have the part number at home somewhere if you need it.
The only thing I would say is try not to damage any of the parts, if you ever find you want to put it back on, the AC stuff is expensive!!!
yes it is possible, i did it on my old 323F, everyone said the water pump wasn't on the same belt as it…but it is :? as for the belt, i just went to the shop thats sorts all my stuff with a piece of string and said i need a belt that long, and they just measured the string against the belts 8)
I removed mine , becuase when my car cought fire ( :( ) The metal pipes melted so I had no choice. It was 500 dllrs or more to re install.
I took off the ac condencer, ac motor and belt. Its alot of heavy stuff there by the way. All I did is at the parts store asked for the belt without AC and they gave me the correct belt.
