Damn! That's a steal! I can't even get my car washed here for $8, just the exterior. Even one of those drive throughs.

1. I just had the White Witch washed again and it looks like a dust storm is on the way.

2. The AC just shit the bed, as in 100% hot air like the devil's blow dryer.

3. The rear passenger window regulator went out as I lowered the window to get the temperature down to "oven cleaning" mode, and has bound up off track so badly that I am waiting for it to detonate once the stress on it is released.

4. Temperatures starting tomorrow will no longer be 115f but pushing 120f or more. That will be when I can spend more time on the window (without shade)
5. The wife had "no shit" laughed about the Zamboni incident only 2 days before!! Which for those of you keeping score only took 4+ years...

If anything happens, remember that I did NOT accidentally roll myself up in the Persian rug and beat myself with a hammer.....

What did you do to / for your E53 today??

"if you find my body cut in pieces In a freezer don't believe the suicide note".

Most regulator issues can be repaired with creativity and stronger than factory.

AC just stopped could be clutch I think they use a magnetic clutch it's been known to have a weird failure with spacers/shims. IIRC.

yep, if the AC clutch doesnt engage when you pull the pressure switch wire by the compressor, its probably the fuseable link INSIDE the clutch. its a PITA but can be done on the car, without opening the AC lines. there is a write up on here some place.

Foxwell will kick on AC clutch. Aux fan faul test is the main cause of AC stops working no warning.

I've gone a week or more with fox on console pressing the AC engage every few minutes.

Definitely start there the AC could be perfectly fine and you definitely also want/need a functional aux fan!

If the aux fan is dead, AC will not run for sure. Replaced mine with a cheap amazon or Ebay one 6 or 7yrs ago and still fine. You can do it from underneath without pulling the bumper beam, but you have to really force it out and back in. Having hung out with a few EOD guys on the boat back in the day, I am sure you have no problem doing that :P

You can pull out the top easy if you are willing to cut some plastic air duct.

So it's my compressor....

It destructed internally to the point that I have metal shavings in the lines.

All new lines, condenser, compressor and a wallet.

3,000 and 2 more days maximum

I truly didn't know it was possible to make an AC into a glitter pump for a strip joint!!

PS. I will now be working at a strip joint.
