    The most A/C compressors are damaged inside the AC pump. You have to check carefully because if you got metal chips in the hoses.
    If you got metal chips in the AC system, you have to replace condenser and expansion valve and do a flush of the AC system

    If you cant turn any part of the outer wheel of the ac compressor, it’s probably locked up inside and have to be replaced.
    The outer part of the wheel should turn freely, but the inner part should rotate the parts inside the compressor.
