Are the switches mounted on the door itself? Assuming all the fuses are in order, the most likely suspect is the 'snake' that takes the wires between the door and the car itself. As you open and close the door, these wires have to flex, and can fatigue or break, or rub on the metalwork of the door and wear (although there should be a plastic harness or ...

You need to inspect the following: Serpentine belt (actually, change it if you haven't done so already) Tensioner pulley - While the tensioner may appear as though it's good, it may not be giving the belt enough tension so it has traction on the accessories. One of the two is going to be your issue. There is the outside chance you received a bad ...

The slave cylinder is mounted on the bell housing with the fluid valve outside, and the piston within the housing. If there is a catastrophic failure, it is likely to be from the piston gasket: then all the fluid goes straight into the bell housing, wetting the clutch. Some points to consider: They may be rather more fluid than the slave piston volume; ...

You won't be able to rinse brake fluid off the friction material, if it has become contaminated it will remain so for ever. Whether it needs changing depends on whether it has been contaminated to such an extent as to have a detrimental effect on the clutch performance - which it may not have done - you'd only be able to tell by driving the car (n.b. on the ...

The problem is the system is low on refrigerant. Since the clutch engages, there is enough refrigerant in the system (pressure) for the clutch to engage. If there wasn't enough in the system, it wouldn't even do that. If the system were where it is supposed to be, the compressor would kick on/off constantly once the system has been run for a little while. ...

If we're ruling out the possibility of a leak in the system and you're still not getting cold air then it's probably due to normal wear/age. The refrigerant system is supposed to be a sealed system, but this is rarely perfect. If the AC system has never been serviced or it's been many years (6+) since it has been you could be just experiencing normal ...

What happens? Depending upon exposure to the elements, sun/rain and climate the car will deteriorate. The more extreme the environment/climate the faster things expire. Tyres go flat. Rubber perishes (tyres, wiper blades) Fuel goes off. Grease hardens. Oil breaks down. Any raw metal parts not covered in oil/grease could rust/corrode. Batteries die. ...

In no particular order: Clean the fuel tank and fuel filter. Do a full oil change (engine, transmission, diffs). Change the brake fluid. Check the condition of the plugs, plug leads and battery. Check the condition of the wheel bearings. Check the condition of the tyres. Check the condition of the timing belt, auxiliary belts and pulleys. After that, ...

You're probably right, but it could also come from the inside of any of the exhaust components. A failed catalytic converter can be VERY noisy. Once I had a failing front-muffler/resonator too and it was producing a rattling sound at low speed. That would also explain the echoey sound. The best way to determine that is to hit every single exhaust component ...
