Thanks PaulD, that's what I'm hoping. The Suzuki dealer advised, after checking with a technician, that the magnetic clutch pulley would be in the way. I'm not taking that as gospel so until I hear otherwise I'm planning on trying to fit a shorter belt when I put on the winter wheels in a couple of weeks time.
I agree there isn't a Suzuki belt, its just that they charge x3 the cost of one from NAPA :)
I'm having a "Suzuki" inner tie rod fitted this week, they even sell the lock nut for the outer tie rod end as a separate piece. Again the cost is three times the price of an after market one but they won't allow me to supply the part.
Thanks for your input - much appreciated.

Looking at the manual again it looks like they may be right. The back of the belt may touch the AC pulley.

Yes, it's going to be hit and miss from looking at the diagram and the longest distance between pulleys so some play/flex likely in the belt just where the magnetic clutch pulley is. I won't know for sure until I try it and for $20 its worth a shot - beats replacing bearings in the compressor when it doesn't work :D
I was hoping someone on the forum had tried it or a mechanic could advise from experience.
Cheers :)

There is no such thing as an "honest dealer". Occasionally, you find one that is not as crooked as the others but an "honest dealer", sorry, NEVER.
