Ugh... I was already pissed off enough at my car what with the stupid transmission leaking (which was 100% my fault) and now a [email protected]$$ deer runs into the side of it on the highway... (Guess it was better than having it flip up on the hood and into the windshield, though <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> )<p>Both driver's side doors are dented. The driver's door is all wonky by the handle and the rear door is pushed in quite nicely under the handle. The pictures aren't the greatest (nighttime), but it's something to look at. Luckily, none of the glass was broken and both doors open and shut.<p>Anyway, anyone know if trying to put down the windows would be a big mistake? I'm guessing so... Maybe I could just get the doors popped back out as best as possible and deal with it otherwise? <p>Or sell the darn thing... I'm really starting to have a mental block when it comes to this car and would rather see it go than put the $2k~$3k into it that it needs. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> Anyone need a T5 engine in good shape? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> (Maybe the parts for a manual swap sans the transmission itself...)<p><A HREF="http://lh6.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/Sjb8mqIxp5I/AAAAAAAAAwQ/8goVHfbQiNo/s800/IMG_2933.JPG" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://lh6.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/Sjb8mqIxp5I/AAAAAAAAAwQ/8goVHfbQiNo/s144/IMG_2933.JPG" BORDER="0"></A> <A HREF="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/Sjb8nM_yUGI/AAAAAAAAAwU/eDYKu1_z5Jo/s800/IMG_2936.JPG" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/Sjb8nM_yUGI/AAAAAAAAAwU/eDYKu1_z5Jo/s144/IMG_2936.JPG" BORDER="0"></A> <A HREF="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/Sjb8nRPDQEI/AAAAAAAAAwY/dHiSPItvyKs/s800/IMG_2938.JPG" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/Sjb8nRPDQEI/AAAAAAAAAwY/dHiSPItvyKs/s144/IMG_2938.JPG" BORDER="0"></A> <A HREF="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/Sjb8nzNP1_I/AAAAAAAAAwc/j-n_13TLq_g/s800/IMG_2940.JPG" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/Sjb8nzNP1_I/AAAAAAAAAwc/j-n_13TLq_g/s144/IMG_2940.JPG" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://lh4.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/Sjb8oTFkrLI/AAAAAAAAAwg/aEz9x9E5vLA/s800/IMG_2941.JPG" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://lh4.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/Sjb8oTFkrLI/AAAAAAAAAwg/aEz9x9E5vLA/s144/IMG_2941.JPG" BORDER="0"></A> <A HREF="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/Sjb9PFmaJeI/AAAAAAAAAwo/kDL5Zw_GkQI/s800/IMG_2942.JPG" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/Sjb9PFmaJeI/AAAAAAAAAwo/kDL5Zw_GkQI/s144/IMG_2942.JPG" BORDER="0"></A> <A HREF="http://lh4.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/Sjb9PaWUvwI/AAAAAAAAAws/8bGkB3WFkZI/s800/IMG_2943.JPG" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://lh4.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/Sjb9PaWUvwI/AAAAAAAAAws/8bGkB3WFkZI/s144/IMG_2943.JPG" BORDER="0"></A><p><br><A HREF="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/SjgHZ2KD7oI/AAAAAAAAAw8/x4HZ9OcbWWg/s800/IMG_2945.JPG" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/SjgHZ2KD7oI/AAAAAAAAAw8/x4HZ9OcbWWg/s144/IMG_2945.JPG" BORDER="0"></A> <A HREF="http://lh4.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/SjgHaZVe-4I/AAAAAAAAAxA/zzWkYz-ViXw/s800/IMG_2946.JPG" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://lh4.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/SjgHaZVe-4I/AAAAAAAAAxA/zzWkYz-ViXw/s144/IMG_2946.JPG" BORDER="0"></A> <A HREF="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/SjgHawHPEdI/AAAAAAAAAxE/ILIwVZSxWTM/s800/IMG_2947.JPG" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/SjgHawHPEdI/AAAAAAAAAxE/ILIwVZSxWTM/s144/IMG_2947.JPG" BORDER="0"></A> <A HREF="http://lh6.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/SjgHbLSNiRI/AAAAAAAAAxI/sZsUDVX0Jns/s800/IMG_2948.JPG" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://lh6.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/SjgHbLSNiRI/AAAAAAAAAxI/sZsUDVX0Jns/s144/IMG_2948.JPG" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/SjgHbS3v5KI/AAAAAAAAAxM/ojfvIE_aY9g/s800/IMG_2949.JPG" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/SjgHbS3v5KI/AAAAAAAAAxM/ojfvIE_aY9g/s144/IMG_2949.JPG" BORDER="0"></A> <A HREF="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/SjgHs4YVsrI/AAAAAAAAAxU/KizyvndWRls/s800/IMG_2950.JPG" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/SjgHs4YVsrI/AAAAAAAAAxU/KizyvndWRls/s144/IMG_2950.JPG" BORDER="0"></A> <A HREF="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/SjgHtBYG3GI/AAAAAAAAAxY/_zLQaRBckKk/s800/IMG_2951.JPG" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_eE0yNOema1A/SjgHtBYG3GI/AAAAAAAAAxY/_zLQaRBckKk/s144/IMG_2951.JPG" BORDER="0"></A><BR><BR>

Heh. I have no idea. I'd need to get another car first, and I honestly have no interest in parting out this car myself. (Don't really have the time or the place...)

So, in my infinite ignorance, I tried to torque the <i>other</i> bolt on the bottom and clearly used the wrong torque value as I sheared it in half. At that point it started gushing and I applied entirely too much JB-Weld to it. Now it's back to leaking fairly slowly, but the casing is basically unusable. I probably should have just paid someone to drill-and-tap a new bolt, but I was stupid. Although, when I changed the fluid the first time, it came out black. And I'm under the impression that it'll need a new clutch soon, so I figured the labor to do a clutch <i>and</i> tranny at the same time would be pretty close to just the clutch(?) And I could pick up a used tranny for a few hundred more than whatever it would have cost to have the bolt fixed...(?)<p>But, yeah. Let me know if you think you might be interested in the car... If I choose to get rid of it, I'd probably be more than happy to dump it for whatever I owe on it minus whatever the repair costs would be for the doors and the tranny/clutch replacement. Although, it's still very drivable. I might just keep it until I graduate within the next year and get a real job (and start hemorrhaging money, at least from my point of view <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> )<p><br><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>Bender</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">sorry to see that Ryan but glad to see you are ok...</TD></TR></TABLE><br>That's why I drive a Volvo! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> Ugh... and I was <i>really</i> looking forward to getting a new computer to replace this stupid 5yo POS I have... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/redface.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (assa55in)

Heh. Alright. But I wouldn't get your hopes up. I'm probably going to be keeping it for another few months at the least. I really can't afford to off it and get a new one just because I'm holding a grudge against the thing <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> Also, my next car will <i>have</i> to be <i>at least</i> a T5M or else it will simply be no fun to drive <i>at all!</i> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> And god knows how hard it's going to be to find another one of those... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

Sorry to hear about your bad luck with the car!! I've never heard of a dear running in to the side of a car though, that's got to be a pretty rare thing huh?? Anyways I hope you have better luck with your next car if you decide to get rid of the Volvo.

Re: (NJGreenBudd)

I really don't know... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> My dad has me on his plan (as being on my own would be very expensive) and has graciously been paying it for me. So, I don't really know the ins-and-outs of it at all.<p>Got two repair estimates today. First place said they would replace the doors with ones from a donor car and it'd be ~$2600. Second place said they'd install new outer skins and it'd be ~$2300. My dad seemed to think that with our insurance, there would be a $1000 deductible and then they'd just raise the premiums over the next 3 years and have you pay it back. Boy, I sure hope that's not the case... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/redface.gif" BORDER="0"> (If so, he <i>really</i> needs to look into changing insurance companies/plans...)<p>In other news, I was trying to be all self-loathing earlier when my girlfriend called to tell me that she just saw some white dude break into an apartment with a crowbar and, accompanied by two others, drag a black guy out and start wrestling with him. Turns out one of the white guys was the landlord and didn't like the fact that the black guy was staying in the apartment with the Asian woman he had rented it to. That sure put my life into perspective! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><br><b>Edit:</b> Some daytime photos added to the first post.<BR><BR>
