Ac compressor seized

I have a 97 f350 and my compressor is seized and smoke was coming out. My question is I now that I need to change my orfice tube, accumulator and compressor. Do I need to take this to a shop to have the coolant drained, flushed and refilled or can I just do it in the driveway without Any special equipment. Thanks in advance.

If there is pressure left in the A/C system than you should go have the refrigerant recovered. To recharge you'll have to vacuum down the system and then leak check it, finally add the new R-134a. Unless you have the specialty tools available take it to someone and have it done.

Personally I would take it to the shop. I had all the tight tools to do mine and did everything right and it blew up 2 weeks later. Just take it in and let them worry about it. It costs more but its on them if its not right.
