I don't know if I mentioned before but my car's blower motor was broken when I purchased it. The PO seemed to think it was a $500 job so he deducted that from the purchase price; he said it hadn't worked in about a year and never had the scratch to fix it.
So today, I took it to this mechanic I know here in the city. He's one of those 'best kept secret' types and resembles Yoda in more ways than one.
Anyway, he took a look at it and had the thing working within 5 minutes. The ****ing fan power switch was broken and was simply not turning the dial behind the climate controls.
I'm going to a dealership tomorrow to have the knob replaced. It will probably cost me $3.
I also stopped into Dirty Parts which is a 4X4 shopped recommended to me by a bartender friend as well as on JeepForum. After having already stopped into the local 4WheelParts retailer, Dirty Parts was like a breath of fresh air. Tiny place but stocked to the brim with cool, quality parts. Very knowledgeable staff as well.
I will definitely be doing a lot of work there.
