(Oops... see elsewhere.) Replaced the A/C compressor... bought used online for $280. Cooling system. A persistent small leak in the radiator somewhere near it's center right side. Replaced radiator with a premium one bought online. Usually a such a repair is easy... just take off a bit of shielding on the top, a few screws and lift out the rad. BUT with the EX35, we had to get at everything from the front... remove the entire front grill, cross bars, remove the A/C lines and evaporator TOO! (had the CFCs / Freon captured by my mechanic for $C45 (friendly to the environment!). Both the A/C compressor from last year and the radiator are working fine after many months. Have to recharge the A/C soon... summer is coming. Happy I have the evac pump, gauges and freon already.

Compressor is noisy. After the radiator leak/replacement in December, we didn't recharge the AC... with the super cold weather it would be hard to get reliable gauge readings (our shop is quite cold). The evacuation for moisture and recharge with the gauges went well,.. Temp. dropped from 22°C to 8°C. But the compressor is a little noisy. Found it difficult to determine how much AC Compressor oil was in the system (wonder if the little cotton analyzers are accurate?). I suspect it needs more oil. I'll update the result.
