If you had the system repaired a ago I would bring it back. There is a chance that a component that was replaced is defective. There is also the possibility that you had a major leak that they found easily and now a small leak that may be more difficult to find. I would give the shop the benifit of trying to fix it for free before attempting anything by ...

You can visually verify if the compressor is running by watching the clutch engage and disengage with the climate controls set to A/C. If it's engaging and immediately dis-engaging on a warm day, the system is probably low on freon. If it's not coming on at all, you'll want to check the relay and the wiring. The relay is in the box on the driver's fender ...

A multimeter is going to be your best bet as, depending on exactly what the cause is, you may have one of the following: a partial short circuit a partial open circuit a faulty relay You will need to follow the wires to find the physical problem. The good news is that it is likely to be near the back, as closing the trunk must have jarred something ...

Safe the airbags - Pulling the battery is one way. You could also pull fuse #36. It's in the fuse box in the passenger compartment on the driver's side under the dash. It should be a 10 amp red fuse in the bottom row, 3rd from the right. Either way, you need to wait for the air bag capacitor to discharge after power is disconnected (the capacitor allows ...

If the compressor clutch is activated via relay, it may need replacement. As they get older it's fairly common for relays to get sticky and intermittently work. I've got that going on with the power steering relay on my MR2. Sometimes it just sticks and the power steering doesn't work until it frees up again (there's a couple methods to free it up again). ...

You can check the pressure with a gauge set. The low pressure port is near the battery. If you've got normal pressure, you might have a bad low pressure switch. I'd think it would be on one of the hard lines, but I'd have to look up the location. To find out where the leak is, you fill the system back up and try and find it. Use R134a with dye ...

For the dust entry: The fabric you mention is probably insulation over the blower motor. It could be coming in from the outside to that location from the air intake in the cowl near the wipers on the passenger side. It's possible the seal around the cabin air filter is gone. There should be instructions for changing the cabin air filter in your owners ...

There is a small clip behind the handle that retains it to the regulator shaft.You have several options to repair it. The first is to pry on the handle until you destroy the clip and replace it when you install the new handle. Using this method generally results in a damaged door panel also. Any auto parts store sells a door panel tool for under 10 bucks ...

It's the control cable (#10) that runs from the door handle / lock tab to the latch/lock assembly. It's discontinued, not a single one in dealer inventory in the entire United States. Vintage Parts does not have any either. I ended up grabbing one off of a wreck at the local Pick-n-Pull . Getting to it involves removing the door panel. Remove the screws ...
