Mexicans live south of the Rio Murray.
Brisbane is split by the river except in 2011 when everybody was in it.
Then there's South of the Limpopo.

A few problems were found with my air conditioning system air conditioning compressor clutch not engaging ,over the years wiring under the dash had been messed with , some needed rewiring as had been cut in the past (for what ever reason) .was rewired as per wiring diagrams, all electrical circuits retested and a problem was found with the air conditioning control module. Module was opened up and fault was found repaired ,re soldered all connections on circuit board reinstalled in car and tested operating correctly .new receiver dryer and O rings fitted leak and pressure tested and re gassed ,compressor oil change, condenser fins flushed and cleaned ,vents in the dash adjusted (one wasn't working) cable operated. Found recirculated air flap was not operating (400 $ for a new one ) so was locked in position and that was about it quite labour intensive but well pleased with the way it works.
Hope this is of use to some one.

Wow, sounds like they new what they were doing. Was that a geniune part for the recirc flap? I wonder if one could have been sourced for less? But when you are paying an expert an hourly rate to get things working, i understand you just want to get things done and time is money chasing cheaper parts.
