Again, for my basic 2004 Forester, I got a scary service quote today to replace the AC compressor and it's 'filter'(?). Anyone have a ballpark idea of what a job like this might cost? Thanks.

The rest will vary on shop labor rate, you would also have to add in the cost for the recharge of the system. If you have any friends who do HVAC(heating and ventilation) they could do the recharge for you.
