I'm sorry you feel the quote you received was excessive. In order to provide a warranty to our customers, our parts vendors have a disclaimer for A/C components. In this disclaimer, Harrell's Auto Service and other repair facilities that provide a warranty must purchase and install a compressor, dryer, expansion valve/orrice tube, and sometimes a condenser. If these parts are not sold and installed the parts mfr will not warranty the parts, thus not allowing Harrell's Auto Service to provide a warranty to you the customer. Per my techs notes from your visit "AC COMPRESSOR BEARINGS ARE MAKING NOISE AND FREON AND OIL HAVE PURGED OUT FROM THE COMPRESSOR.
RECOMMEND REPLACE COMPRESSOR, CONDENSER AND RECOMMEND AC COMPONENTS
If your compressor was indeed new, it was making noise and the tech noticed freon and pag oil leaking from this part. Once a compressor fails, it sends small particals of metal in the system that must be flushed out and critical parts replaced or they will fail. If you have any questions, or would like to discuss in detail, please feel free to contact me at the local repair facility you visited.
