You will want to talk with an A/C specialist first. Whatever you do, don't just release the freon into the air. No, I'm not a greenie - your 1993 probably has R12 (my daughter's 1993 Accord does) and the freon in the system is worth between $50 and $100 on the recycle market. It can't be legally made any more in most of the world and buying black market R12 is illegal in most of the world, so the price of what is left keeps going up.

The specialist will probably advise you to replace the receiver-drier also because there may be debris from the failed compressor in it. You will want a new part for that but can go with a compressor from a wrecking yard. You will need the A/C specialist to evacuate and recharge the system when you get the parts changed out.
