    The part is $285 through Europartssd ...
    So far the best quote on the labor I got is $400, that's without the alignment .... it's gonna be $800 by the time it's all over.

      We did .... you're one of the few left driving them.
      Pony up & get a new van already.

      Interesting. Turn the phone sideways, and I see you're all driving the latest 2008 technology... :D


      Edit: I want to buy. I just don't want to pay

      All the Sprinters in the past 10 yrs have been based on the '07 platform. Few tweaks here and there but it's the same.
      Last year my chariot went down & I had a commitment to honor. Brought mine to the shop & rented a new black 2017 for 3 days. It had about 3K mi on it. I picked it up on Fri morning, returned it on Mon morning with another 3K mi :D Walked away thinking mine drives better ...

      Yeah, I'm afraid of that too

      Most say a transit drives like a car. I don't like cars

      Why should you be afraid of that? ... you have an '05.
      The 6 cylinder will most definitely drive better!

      Really ?
      Ric Ocasek sounds Canadian to me.

      Edit: did research. Born in Baltimore. Moved to Cleveland.

      I do know what I'm missing. Payments. I'd have to treat this like a serious job instead of like a high school dropout....

      (Meaning amount of work. I always deliver exceptional service)

      I'll sleep on it. I'm first up just in time for the weekend :D

      an awesome company

      I prefer to keep and maintain my freedom. And I love the simplicity and dependability of my older van. 3 breakdowns in 8 years isnt too bad.

      I've been cutting my own hair for years, it's really not that difficult, and becomes easier with time. Have only had one real goof when using my electric trimmer with the wrong size attachment by mistake, resulting in a much shorter hair cut then I planned on :rolleyes:

      But it was the middle of summer, so not a biggy ;)

      The Mustang Club, just south of the Ford plant, has good ice. Dearborn maybe ?
