2002 Jeep Liberty AC Compressor Seized Help Needed
I own a 2002 Liberty. The ac compressor seized and broke the belt.I live in northern Maine where ac is useless. What I'm wondering is if it is possible to install a remanufactured compressor and not hook up any ac hoses or any other connections to the compressor. I would like to use the pulley only. I have been unable to locate a bypass pulley for the Liberty. Will the pulley spin freely if it is not hooked to any connections. Any help that you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Broke in Maine
i am facing the same problem. my compressor clutch bearing failed yeaterday. I will be checking to see if a belt is available for libertys without an air conditioner if this turns out to be to expensive to warrent repair.
You guys removing the compressor and putting in the bypass insted?
I just replaced my compressore last week. It was an easy job. I bought a reman compressor for 299. mopar wants 800.00 for the compressor.
reman is good enough for me.
the bypass should run you roughly, 90.00 or so

Jeep Dealer Quoted $450 To Replace Compressor. Junk Yard Wants $ 110 For A Used Compressor.
I Think I Will Go Used Since I Have 352,000 Miles On My 02, The Used Compressor Must Have Less Miles On It And I Will Be Selling Or Junking My 02 Eventually, I Just Bought An 08 Liberty. Ill Run The 02 Till It Dies
I'm not sure what brand of compressor we have but if it's a Sanden it may be possible to replace just the clutch or bearing bearing leaving the compressor on the jeep and not loosing freon It can be done this way on a VW Eurovan
Mine was a sanden but with the 350k miles I have on my liberty I figgured the compressor didn't have long to live.
I picked up a compressor at the junk yard, The liberty it came off had 12k miles on it. The whole job took less then an hour. I am debating weather or not to go thru the trouble of recharging it as winter is setting in
i am getting ready to replace the ac on our 2003 liberty . if i want the warranty that comes with the ac it says on the box i have replace a filer and a hose . has anyone replaced an ac on a 2003 liberty .
