Default Celica 2003 a.c. compressor/condenser issue?

I was having a lot of loud noise with my celica 03 so i towed it to the dealer and had it checked out. They say the noise is coming from a messed up a.c. compress and condenser and that it had to be removed from the toyota celica 03 all together and a new one put in costing roughly 1,400k.

I wanted to know if their was a way to just shut off my ac all together by either removing the belt in their or a pulley? Or does can a fuse be shut off or just a belt re adjusted or removed in order for the unit to stop working. I have read other posts that have said their are no adverse effects to the vehicle if these things are done..

Id rather fix the other problems with the car then an A.C. issue for now, if possible...

Thank you All responses are really appreciated!!

If the engine has multiple belts for different accessories,you should just be able to remove the ac belt and you're good to go.If a serpentine belt is used and its running around every single pulley on the engine,a shorter belt can be installed sometimes to bypass the ac compressor.However,some vehicles have to install a ac delete pulley in place of the compressor in order to make the belt work.Really just depends on the belt routing as to whether a shorter belt can wrap around all the pulleys with enough clearance .I guess if neither one of those options will work,you could always get a used compressor at the junkyard.A smog pump can be gutted but I'm not sure if you can gut a compressor or not then reinstall it.If its possible,that's what Id do.If its real noisy,the bearings are gone out and I'm not sure if there is a compressor rebuild or compressor bearing kit which is sold or not.If so,just change the bearings and you should be able to reinstall it and it work fine
