Bypass AC Compressor on 2008 Dodge Nitro v6 3.7L

Published on Jun 5, 2016

82.5 Belt Required

I used a Dayco 5060825 Belt for 2008 Nitro with 3.7 v6 motor....other years with same engine will probably work.

Modified Diagram Here:

Originally broke down 2 hours away from home and spent hours at an auto parts store. I wanted to make a video to save someone time in case this happens as there is no documentation of an AC Bypass for this Nitro on the net. I put the old belt and AC Compressor back on so that I could record this. Idea was taken off of a forum for a 3.7L Jeep close to the same year.


Nitro Year: 2007 (1 of 91,815 sold in 07)
Nitro Model: R/T 4X4 Stone White
CAT-BACK Exhaust, CAI, Projector Head Lamps
Fully-Equipped w/all factory options
