alright, so i've had my car for a few months now and starting a couple months ago my windows started to get temperamental. they would work most of the time, but then sometimes they wouldnt no matter what i did. it slowly started going the other way, to where they would usually not work. and now, they just flat out dont work. i've put a new lock switch on it. i've played with the wiring. i've checked the fuse. i'm completely baffled on this one. any ideas?

on to the A/C problem...back in october or november i had noticed that there was no a/c belt on my car when i bought it. not a big deal, it's cold outside (then it was). just went to finally get a belt on there and got it on, and the car wouldnt start. the a/c compressor must be rusted or something because it wont turn. any ideas on unsticking that, or do i just have to buy a new one?

and the fluid leak....i am leaking brake fluid, and bad. it's not coming from the brake components. after leaving the car sit for a while a puddle will build up under the center of the car right behind the oil pan. i am not sure where this leak would be coming from. also, it only leaks enough so that the fluid level reaches the line for minimum, which causes my clutch pedal to go directly to the floor.

any help you guys can give me will be greatly appreciated. thanks.

I don't know about your AC and windows, but I had the same problem for the leaking brake fluid. Your clutch takes it's fluid from the same place your brakes do. I'm very sure that it's the clutch cylinder (the one attach to the clutch), the fluid is leaking in the bell housing. Take the cylinder off, push the pedal (clutch) if the fluid is leaking from it, change it. It's about 90 bucks (CAN$). Tell me if it worked!
