Home improvement projects taking all my time. Wifey is not happy. Have to install a door (not a pre-hang...) between main room and media room. Mounted 52 in LCD too low (from aesthetic point of view) ...
This rain is already under my skin


Raves
BlueRay movies on low-mounted big screen look awesome. Still need to mount speakers http://********************/smile/emthup.gif
Streaming Netflix is not bad either http://********************/smile/emthup.gif http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Have a good weekend everyone

Raves:
Got the job: more income, lesser hours (10hrs a week lesser), 1week more paid holiday than before ... ow and i only start at 9.30am

my former job was 11km away, this one 27km .... way better: 11km is too short to get the engine heated.

Rants:
Hail and lightning at moment, lucky car is clean and dry inside.

drinking:
Belgian beer, got to empty the crate so tomorrow I can pick up new crates

Dealer with the jeep i'm looking at didn't want to negotiate down on their asking price.
Bathroom is being remodeled and demo started today at 0800.
Don't want to sell the R, but don't want to pay for her either.
R is dirty.

Raves:
Work has been good lately.
CEL on the DP has been fixed.
Local dealership sold all 3 R's they had a less than a month ago. They were asking low 20's. This gives me hope for getting a decent price on my R when I sell her.

If anyone is interested in my R, shoot me an IM. I don't have any pictures of her clean right now.

Rant, Rant, Rant

Only a rant today!


The rear wiper on the R crapped out this week -- the intermittent wipe works intermittently, only sweeping part-way across the glass.

The motor was under warranty (I replaced it last August) so Lehman Motors said they would exchange it for a new one. Took it out this morning, drove through the rain to Harrisburg (1 1/2 hours) and got the new motor.

Installed it in Lehman's parking lot and, voila -- the new one did the same thing.


Talked to the parts manager -- he says his son's V70 had the same problem. Turned out to be the wiring harness in the rear door. Geez, I thought that only happened in 240 wagons.

So now I have to decide if I want to try and install the new harness myself, or have the dealer do it, which would essentially double the cost.

Any VR owners done the swap themselves? I can't see any real problems other than getting to the plug behind the driver's side hinge.
