Q: AC motor blown? metal in system? repair quote?

asked by on

Firestone told me I blew the ac motor and there was metal in the system, therefore my AC would cost more than the value of the car. I don't necessarily trust my Firestone mechanics they c be pretty lazy over here. The compressor was seized so I cut the belt. How much do u think Im lookin at to get a working AC again?

My car has 84000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
