You are a very brave man! but it is way cheaper to have an AAA membership!T&C 2004, 3.8L, 70,000 original miles.
Found a repair shop, but, as expected, they were closed. Started looking for a convenience shop (I was hungry and it was cold outside). Found one; luckily, I was allowed to wait inside the shop.
- Liftgate Latch
- Door lock actuators (sliding doors)
- AC Compressor
- Alternator Pulley (came off when I was doing 8.5 mph ...at 6am... After I found the pulley (inside the belt shield) - I put it back on. Started the vehicle and... it jammed...😐 Found a tow truck company (on the internet). They said, it would cost me $125 (6 miles)...and...Like an idiot I decided to take the alternator off, by myself and go on foot...🤷♂️
*Guys at the repair shop asked for $270 (labor costs).🤡
**Pulley + Labor = $340
I thought they were ripping me off, so I decided to do everything by myself...
I went to an autoparts store, bought a new alternator pulley, pulley tool kit, power tools combo kit (cordless), which included: Grinder + Impact driver. Found a place near the store. It took, about, 40 minutes... of struggle (had to cut the old, jammed pulley off).
1) New alternator pulley installed
2) Now I have cordless power tools + pulley tool kit...LoL
3) 12 miles walking exercise
- 65$ (pulley) + $85 (pulley tool kit) + $400 (power tools) + 4 hours...
$550 (by myself) instead of $465 (tow truck / repair shop).🤦♂️
