OK, it's not the evaporator your referring to. That's in the dash. Your concerned about the condenser and rightfully so.
It doesn't sound like a bearing problem. It sounds like the compressor seized up which means it sent metal particles all through the system, mainly the condenser. Sometimes they can be flushed but some cannot. That's where the experience comes in. You have to determine if your condenser is a "bypass" type which cannot be flushed and has to be replaced. If it's a "serpentine" type, then it can be flushed but you need the right chemical and correct tools to do that.
You also have to determine what caused the original compressor failure because it will simply do it again if not resolved. These are the reasons that A/C repair is really not a DIY type repair.
