  1. If the clutch cable had broken it would have to be replaced. A garage with a lift, a skilled mechanic and the correct cable would all be needed. You can't patch a clutch cable.
  2. He likely managed to disengage the shifting linkage. I had a car years ago where the linkage would somehow disengage itself and the gear shift became totally inoperative. I had to crawl underneath and move it manually et voila, problem fixed.
  3. Does this mean that US citizens living in Mexico cannot drive into the US (unless it's for a very specific, approved reason)?
  4. I've been using beta sitosterol since 2011. Had a lot of prostate issues. This made things a whole lot better for me. Beta sitosterol is available on ebay, Amazon, etc. It's also supposed to reduce LDL cholesterol. I take it solely for it's prostate benefits along with saw palmetto daily. If you're interested in a drug free alternative.....
  5. You've done a good job of it, Chillin (as 10,000 pesos is very roughly $500 USD). Yes, they are hard to find. It's probably a good idea to hang on to a really good rental. At least most come furnished with the utilities in someone else's name which is a big help (for me, anyway).
  6. Very handy, thanks a lot. That worked out pretty well. Put the maximum rent amount per month ($800) and got 3 pages of results.
  7. Decent areas: Most places in the greater Ajijic area: La Floresta, Chula Vista, SAT, Mirasol, Riberas, nicer parts of Chapala and Ajijic. One bedroom OK, furnished, secure parking(off street), US style kitchen is a nice extra, small yard OK. Purified water not really neccessary. Quiet area (for Mexico). Is this specific enough?
  8. What should I expect to pay for a small, single house (around 1000 or so sq. ft.) in a decent area closeby to amenities? Prefer Ajijic east to Chapala and points in between.
  9. Quarantine for 14 days even if you're without symptoms (and feel 100%) assuming that you've been exposed to it (hence the positive test result)? Assuming there is no change fee by the airlines, make a new flight reservation for more than 14 days in the future (as you're staying put for at least 14 days to quarantine) and getting retested right after the 14 day quarantine (but within 72 hrs. of your new departure date) and hoping like hell it's not another positive result? Does this sound like the likely scenario following the first positive test result? There sure are a lot of variables with all of this. Probably safest to abstain from travel until the antigen test is no longer required to fly back the US. (Unless you absolutely have to travel, of course). Goodness knows how long that's going to be......
  10. Your visit is almost over and you get positive test results before flying back to the US. What happens then? You can't fly back to the US, obviously, without a negative antigen test result. New hotel, guesthouse Air B&B reservations? Are you charged a change or/rebooking fee with most air carriers? And what about the Covid test itself? You may even be asymptomatic and feel 100%. Do you have to see a doctor and begin a course of treatment and get yourself retested before making a new airline reservation? These are all potential issues right now. Just wondering if anyone on the forum has encountered this scenario......or know of someone who has.
  11. I'm curious as well. What is the average cost to fill the normal- sized tank now? Not sure of the capacity, they're the common size most houses have.
  12. Has anyone not received theirs yet? Now I read where the target date has been pushed back to 4/07 and that some will get a paper check vs. a direct deposit.
  13. At 20 pesos to the USD that's $4 US/gallon. Between the tolls and the fuel costs extended road trips must be pretty costly.
