Hyundai expert mechanic question

I would GREATLY appreciate true and knowledgeable advice, not any random guesses or maybe's.

I blew up my air conditioner compressor and my car was towed this morning. It's a 2002 Hyundai XG350L with 123,966 miles. They are giving me two estimates of $1,250 to get back on the road with no warranty and $1,700 to "do it right" and clean out all the metal shavings and do it the right way.

I had someone tell me to inform them to just disconnect the compressor and put a new belt on knowing I would have no A/C but the car would run.

The auto shop told me it's not possible with my car's setup.

Am I being F**ked up the arse or is that true and they can only complete something more major? The thought of spending $1250-1700 on a 11 yr old car makes me sick.

Any actually advice other than "You are being raped", "Burn your car in an AIDS tree fire", or "You need to shove antifreeze down the throat of the mechanic" is greatly appreciated!

There would've been a significant amount of noise associated with that. I suppose it's possible that the system somehow lost the refrigerant and it was getting vented into the interior of the car. The evaporator is commonly located in that area, and if that needs to be replaced that can get really expensive.

No noise except an occasional brief tapping but that might have been the beggining of the seizing

Yeah idk never dealt with them. The estimate seems a little high but I also don't know everything thats on it. For compressor, drier, orifice tube, condensor, evac and recharge and a belt my estimate is about 1350.

But you'd still have to get that electrical/smoke issue checked out

The failure of the air conditioner compressor and seizing will cause those other issues-that little I do know

FWIW, private party value on your Hyundai is about $1900. Something to keep in mind.

You are way off.

It's $3,500-$3,800 and that was just provided by both my insurance company and a car buying firm. About $2,750 for a trade-in or quick sale to a used car deal purchaser

I've found KBB to be pretty inaccurate. However, your other sources lend the numbers some credibility. I was going off of Edmunds, which is based on what stuff in your area actually sells for, not what people ask.

Good luck with your decision.
