not that anyone's remembered to ask, i just wanted to tell you what a wonderful technician Mr. Amir at Amir Cool Car A/C in F-10 is.
i was told by two guys the compressor needed replacement. and one tut said it was a matter of the bottle behind the front grill and one more thing. Mr. Amir spent 4.5 hrs fixing up a new clutch and some other stuff and lo and behold! i ended up paying Rs. 3450 for a task i thought would cost at least Rs. 10000 since he was saving me on the compressor, pipes, etc.
