So far I GUESS the alternator is working since the battery light is off. However, now I am wondering if it needed to be replaced.
The SAD story is that after they replaced the alternator, they told me I had to take the car to an a/c specialist.
SHEEP that I am, I went. Baaaaaaaa!
They replaced the a/c clutch coil.
Wait... It gets better. They call to say my car is fixed.
I picked up the car and started to drive it home. But the a/c was still blowing warm air! I turned around went back to service repair shop and they said that the mechanic put in a "shim" between the coil and the (?) That was too thick and he needed to replace it with a thinner one.
ONE hour or so later, I get my car back and the a/c works fine.
Can you PLEASE (I'm begging here... ) Give me an idea as to what this "magic" shim was that miraculously made the a/c blow cold air?
Thanks for your help. My sanity is at stake.
