My beetle made a grinding noise and my air conditioner starting blowing out warm air. Did my air conditioning pump break? Can I still drive it if I don't use the air conditioner?

As long as the A/C clutch/hub assembly is intact so the belt can run normally you can drive it with the A/C off, just for precaution see if you can disconnect the A/C compressors electrical connection.
