Red Dust/ No AC / No Start

So... In the midst of moving I go to start my truck to take some things do the dump. It fires right up as always and then aloud clinking noise starts. So I get out pop the hood to see whats up when all of a sudden one loud pop and it dies.
So I turn it over to make sure the thing did not blow up or lock up and it does turn but very slowwwwwwly. So I look under the truck and there is red Dust all over the belt and all over the AC compressor by the pulley. My AC did stop Working about 1 week ago but I haven't needed it so i thought i would wait until the move to address it. Any Thoughts.

Q: Why do you need such a big Truck.

A: 1. Its Awesome 2. Its BIG 3. It makes my pee pee Bigger!!

This happened to me last month the a/c quit then about 1000 miles later the compressor locked up.. pulled it out of the driveway parked it on the street couldn't start it. With the compressor locked up the belt is stuck.

Well I Got the Belt of and the Compressor wont budge. So i guess thats it, However theres no way 2300 bucks is coming out of my budget. So with that said is there a walk through on how to get the compressor out. It looks large and like there is no where to for it to go! I would normally just take some time and figure it out however I move to FT Jackson in 5 days so any tips would be great. Thanks for your alls input !!

I don't know for sure, but i think if you remove the motor mount bolt on the passenger side and jack it up a little you can get it out. Only problem is that you probably don't have a way to evacuate the system. $2300 can't be what he paid just for a compressor installed. Book time is only 3.6 hrs for single alternator trucks. Might be worth having the new compressor replaced somewhere and just leaving the system empty and compressor disconnected. That would make it cheaper and you could drive it to FL.

on my 03 you have to go through the top and since the compressor locked up you need to flush the system and there is something else that needs replaced forget what it was and probably a belt. 9.6hr book time plus parts. And i would suggest a new compressor not a rebuild.

I would say you had to have a new condenser, drier and orifice tube. I agree that all needs done but if he replaces the compressor and leaves the system empty, it will get him to FL where he can do the other work later.

yep that would work. maybe a shorter belt to bypass the compressor not sure if that can be done or not.

Sometimes you can buy a bypass pulley at the parts house, take the compressor out put a plastic bag over the hoses, tape the hell out of it, and reinstall the belt.
