Hey guys,

It's been awhile since I last posted, been busy with college and school work. I ran into a problem this morning on the way to school, my power steering pulley broke off the bearing or w/e and started to grind against the engine mount. My serpentine belt chewed it-self and then car started to over-heat. Does anybody have the length of a serpentine belt that bypasses the power steering pulley? (with A/C)

tl;dr - Length of serpentine belt that bypasses power steering pulley

I've been driving it without power steering for over a year...

You'll probably need to measure -
get some string and wrap it through the pulley you want to use.
and you have the length you need.

I don't see how you could bypass the power steering pulley as that is the pulley that brings the belt over to the water pump.

Why don't you try fixing your power steering instead. It would be safer. :rolleyes:
