Yeah, I would get it fixed, in the winter it is still useful, it helps keep the windows from fogging. In the short term if your pulley is going out or something is seized, I guess bypassing it is the way to go, but if you just need to prevent it from turning on, just pull the fuse or disconnect the connector at the compressor.

Someone does make a by-pass pulley for the tec, but iirc, the compressor must be removed.
I know Dorman makes one for the Vulcan...didn't know the 'tec had one. Dang, news to me!

Nick, i read that somewhere, cant remember if was on here or elsewhere, or the name of the mfgr. I just dismissed it when i saw the compressor had to come out anyway. Only positive would be if you were terribly low on funds.

I can confirm that. I had seen A/C bypass pulley for 2000 TEC at both AutoZone and Napa websites at different times.

Whatever setup the 2000 has should mimick the Gen 3 Duratecs, as they use the same belt and pulley setup.
