The blower motor has been squeaking all winter on the S60. So I bought another blower and put it in the garage. Problem fixed! Basically.

Absolutely no inspections except for emissions in Connecticut either, totally crazy!

Well, I did put off getting an alignment done and the tires balanced. Being reminded every time I drive it though :o

I've continued to put off looking into the ETM on my 2001. Getting an error code (P0121) about once every other month. Really need to look into that this spring.

Put off changing noisy starter motor, since fall. Then it dawned on me today that I'd be stuck if it fails for good..can't jump start it or push start it due to the auto box.
Off to upullit.

For the effort involved I'd go for a rebuilt unit or even a new starter.

Next time your car needs something let me know - I may already have it in my garage. Could save you a few bucks!
