Hello. If the compressor is internally seized and the vehicle can run with the A/C off, then you are okay to just disconnect the compressor. Sometimes the failure is the bearing in the A/C pulley and will seize up causing the belt to break. If this is the case, then you will need to replace the compressor and or pulley to fix the issue. A bypass of the compressor is an aftermarket item and directions would need to be followed to install the kit.
