1995 Honda Civic AC Compressor Belt Noisy

The compressor is not working for my AC. The belt is making a lot of noise. I don’t want to replace the compressor right now. If I cut the belt will it just disable the compressor, or will it cause other problems?

That belt only operates the AC compressor.

Tester

So that is an it would be fine for clarification?

Is it only when the compressor is turned on or at all times the engine is running?

Look and see. Does that belt run only the compressor, as Tester said? Then it can be removed or cut off.
