    Why do they call it a rider?

    If my passengers are riders, and one of them is a right handed writer of construction topics who's so cranky that you might say he's writhing.

    Would it be possible to get a rider for a writhing righty writer rider writing an article on riser wiring?

    So the A/C went out again.

    They replaced the A/C evaporator coil last year and that's failed again. Or so they say.

    Now they're saying that the blower motor has failed and it's $250 to get it replaced and installed. I'm like ... I TOLD YOU THAT IT WASN'T BLOWING WHEN IT WAS UNDER WARRANTY ... and I just pulled my records, I had it in to one dealership FOUR times last year and then again once this year for A/C issues!

    Really ticks me off that they're telling me that it's not a covered issue. Really ticks me off.

    They didn't check a lot of the issues I had reported. (see op of this thread, this guy Nick really doesn't follow through)

    Blower motor control module went out. Was reading "no output" #22958112

    Looked at backup camera.
    * Says that significant horizontal electrical interference is normal. I disagree.

    Entire passenger and rear A/C has failed, blowing hot.
    Fan pressure is weak.

    Result: John told me that they WOULD cover the A/C condenser that was replaced last year (like 10,000 miles ago!!!!) because it's got a 12-month warranty. However, they WILL NOT cover the blower motor though ... even though I had reported to them and left it with them THREE TIMES when it was under warranty. One of the SPECIFIC complaints that I had was that not only was the air blowing hot (A/C not working) but that it was also blowing weak.

    I'll update this shortly with the results from what was replaced at each visit.

    Evap coil will be replaced. #20827668.
    Blower motor (for rear?) is out #23361388 http://www.gmpartsclub.com/oe-gm/23361388

    So even though I had taken the vehicle into the dealership FOUR TIMES for A/C issues, including specifically mentioning that the air was not blowing hard ... and one time the blower motor control module had to be replaced .... they're not going to cover the rear blower.

    What makes the wonder what's going on ... why did the SAME PART fail twice in a 24-month old vehicle? Also why did a blower motor control module get replaced under warranty but the blower motor goes out 9 months later and it's not covered?

    It can be so hard to get a good blow sometimes ;)
