Actually the Toyota speed sensor works fine. Before MB started offering rebuilts the price for compressors was over a grand. We used many Toyota compressors. The only time the speed sensor has ever been a problem that I have seen was on a rebuild where the shaft was too far from the sensor. I have seen this twice.

Removing or bypassing the speed comparitor just makes sure. I think MB built that system to protect itself. The only people that I know that would drive a MB with the belt squeeling would be people in warrantee who didn't care what broke.
