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!

I'm a Service Writer and basically all I do is put together estiamtes and hunt down parts all day long. What all was on the estimate to "do it right"? I could put together a quick est and see if you're getting screwed. Its Probably Compressor, condensor, drier/accumulator, orifice tube/expansion valve, maybe a liquid line then the evac and recharge and of course labor
I appreciate that-let me try and get the written estimate emailed. I see you are in the NoVA area. I'm in Herndon

Sounds like the compressor clutch locked up and broke the belt which is why you had all the other issues

I could see that as far as the electrical failures go, but the electrical smoke pouring out of the dash?

Yeah the belt snapping wouldn't cause something like that. Possibly multiple things going on there. Perhaps the other estimate has some kind of explanation of that. No belt means no alternator and low voltage which can cause screwy electrical stuff

would the clutch failure itself cause all the other problems?

it would take some work but if you removed the ac compressor i think you could figure out a belt that would just run off of the crank, tensioner and the alt.

somewhat trial and error with figuring out the belt length
