So that you'll know this in the future, the broken belt should have been a clue. When this happens, don't replace the belt until you have turned the compressor to see that it is smooth and free. The compressor going out is probably what broke the belt and caused rough running.

It probably was already too late, but you would not have scattered as much debris through the system if you had caught it at that time.

Many things that happen to the a/c can be simple repairs, the compressor failing internally is not one of them because if not PROPERLY and THOROUGHLY flushed, the debris will destroy the new compressor. That is very possibly what destroyed the one that just failed for you.

Good luck,
