Default window handles or air conditioning

I cannot open windows for either side on my honda civic 96 cx. The
handles stripped off. Sources available? Also, does anyone know where
to obtain a working air conditioner for this model inexpensively. The
bearing has to be replaced; not worth the price.

Car is a boiler with both these problems. Would like to solve any one
of them. Would prefer the air.

Mine has a stripped crank shaft on the driver's side... pair of 6"
Vise-Grips work nicely.

I once had the bearing go back on the compressor on my '87... mechanic
told me there were two possible compressors used on that car: the
cheaper one, the whole job of replacing it would cost about $1000; the
other, the compressor alone would be $1000.

Only other hope is probably a wrecker.

I was able to find a working compressor at my local auto salavge yard for
around $150 us or less/I don't recall the exact price. My gas station
installed it and charged the system in my 94 civic. Several salvage yards
have a parts search system online and some post the asking price too.

Windy. You have to tell us what COUNTRY you're willing to have the
"working air conditioner" shipped to.

This is the Internet.

slhondaparts.com has a diagram of EVERYTHING on your Honda, including
the window cranks. Get the parts from local wreckers. Quickest to get
the windows working rather than wait for AC repair. What happened to
them in the first place? Transporting gorillas? You may need to spray
silicone in the window tracks if they were sticking. google.com has all
those suggestions.

Thanks for this. I did not even consider vise grips could be used. It
works. I wish I had posted this last summer. Sincere thanks.
