Replacing AC compressor on 2007 Ford Freestyle

I got an electronic analysis from the Ford dealer where I purchesed car. I have 46,000 miles on it, original. The estimate from dealer was $1400 - $1500! Stout I think! And only like a year warranty. HELP me find another reliable service center! Any reccomendations?

you must flush complete system and repl the entire system or you will have other issues most likely due to debri in system

IF I chose the dealership to do this work, wouldnt they flush the system before they just break it down and start replacing the compressor? I just bend over and take it at that point? I feel like this is a great deal of money for this replacement. I was told during the analysis that this particular compressor cost more than those on the Lincoln models comparible!?!?

The A/C in my 2005 Freestyle cools great when the car is moving. When it's just idling it does not cool. The mechanic thinks it's clogged fan. Has anyone else had a similar problem?
I had the AC off while I was driving and all of a sudden it came on and started blowing on high. I tried to turn it off but that only switched it to the defroster. I also tried to turn down the fan...
