Angry AC Compressor seized

And at the worst time of year. The compressor seized, ended up twisting off the clutch. This fell out while I was driving down the highway.

Any here have this happen before?

What do I need to look out for as far as further damage?

It's just an accessory, so shouldn't have caused any other issues than maybe some damage to the serpentine belt and a little stress on the battery from having the alternator not charging it for a little bit. I'd probably throw on a new belt with the new compressor as they're so cheap and you need to remove it anyway to replace the a/c.

The belt looks fine, we got the shaft in the compressor to turn and it's grinding inside. Not sure if this has caused debris to go into the condenser or not. Either way, this maybe something we can't do entirely ourselves. Don't have the tools for it lol

Oh.. could be. Can't know what happened without seeing it. I never rebuild them, I just replace them with new OEM units. Too many issues in the past with rebuilt and aftermarket compressors.
