That sounds reasonable, but I think I missed something. What is the 3rd accessory that you mention in the last sentence? I see power steering pump and AC compressor but I don't see anything about a third accessory. These are obviously both pretty easy things to do but I just want to make sure I didn't miss something else. Thanks for your help!
