No, you cannot bypass the A/C compressor.

If you unplug the compressor wire, will the pulley turn then? Unless it is really locked good, the pulley should turn if compressor is disconnected. Unless however the bearing is frozen.

These compressors usually take out the pulley bearing when they seize, which means unplugging the compressor won't do any good.

The correct fix is to replace the compressor & other required parts with new parts. NEVER buy a reman compressor for this model Ford. They're junk.

The cheap fix is to have a qualified shop recover any remaining refrigerant from the system. You can then replace the compressor with a junkyard unit. The a/c won't work, but at least you can install the belt & she can drive the car.
