Default SoCal IE Shop recommendations --> regulators/AC/RadFan

So I will be back in the U.S. in a month! And my parents were kind enough to offer to bring my ti to a shop to get some basics fixed.


1st : A/C - the mechanical parts works for sure - there is a fuse that keeps blowing, I used to know it off the top of my head but its been a year. I think it might be related to my Radiator Fan also not working. - so rad fan needs replacing, and that might fix everything if the fuse is also replaced again, or some basic electrical checks are needed to figure out why the A/C doesn't work.

2nd: Both windows and now sunroof need lube/regulators and some love in general.

It would be awesome to get back to the U.S. with a car with working windows and A/C! Not much to ask I think

I don't really know any shops.. since I did most of my work myself. But if someone has a trusted place let me know please!

Thanks.


--- Oh my parents live in Rancho Cucamonga, and I left my car by them.

I can help you for NorCal, but no so much for SoCal. Maybe Bryan can help out!

In San Diego I would send you to Independent Motorcar owned by Chris Keefer. He's in the Miramar area and does great work, sadly its a bit far from Rancho Cucamonga.

Yes, maybe Javier/Panda or Jerry/Zoner can recommend a shop.

Sure wish I could help, but in San Bernardino and Riverside Counties, I'm no help at all. And any others I would recommend would be in San Diego. A good 2 hours from you. Baron's in Miramar would have been my first recommendation.
