Question about 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII
Sounds like you are in for a pricey repair, replace the compressor and have the system recharged or simply unplug the power to the magnetic clutch and roll the windows down when it gets too hot inside the car.
By unplugging the compressors power supply at least the engine will not be spinning a bad compressor. The drive belt will simply spin the pulley without turning the compressor no matter what settings you choose inside the car.
Expect at least 4 or 5 hundred dollars for a system cleaning ,compressor replacement and system recharge. Chances are the compressor has now contaminated the complete system with shards of material that can possibly ruin a new compressor if the system is not totally cleaned.

You have a problem with your blend door actuator. Every year, twice a year, my husband manually moves the blend door actuator and puts a tie wrap on it so it will stay in either the heat or cool position. You can reach this through the glovebox, which you will need to remove. I had this fixed at the dealer once long, long ago - very expensive because the plastic piece that needs replacing means they must remove the seats and the whole dash area including the steering wheel to properly replace what is broken. If you want to see how that is done go here: http://www.mechanixtrix.com/Article/Article.aspx?ArticleID=145 Much easier going through the glovebox.
