    Some people have simply removed the fuses/relays associated with the pump. Most people just go in, remove the pump and install a block-off plate and remove all the related hoses to the system. You don't need a new belt from what I understand (unless you broke yours). Unless you have the AIR system tuned out of your PCM, it will trigger the SES light after a few run cycles. I'm sure somebody else will chine in. I was actually reading up on the AIR system prior to reading this post.

    youre correct, AIR pump is not belt driven, its under your drivers side headlight, kind of a bitch to get to.

    If you life your car there is a little triangle louvre that can be removed in front of the tire

    Are you referring to the air conditioning, by chance? If so, it's driven by a seperate belt that can simply be removed without affecting other componants. If it's the air pump, just follow Jeff's thread.

    ^^ Good thought. The original post is a bit confusing.

    I wasn't quite sure either, so I figured I'd throw it out as an option too.

    like someone else said...it's behind the drivers side headlight. I know on the formula's there's a drop down panel you can open to get to it and take it out altogther. You can disable it with the relay and fuse but keep in mind you'll throw a code for it. Won't hurt anything to take it out....just get a code for it.
