I have a 06 G6 that started smoking and smelled like rubber was burning when I turned on the AC. Stopped smoking when i turned the AC off. Pretty sure the compressor is bad.
Couple questions...
Can I drive it as is if I don't turn AC on?
Can I bypass with a smaller belt?
Does anyone carry bypass pulleys?
Any help/answers would be greatly appreciated

As long as the A/C pulley turns without binding & the A/C clutch is not engaging there is no reason you can't drive it. You might want to pull the A/C clutch relay so it doesn't inadvertently gets switched on.
