She laughed and said no and she’d buy one from the auto parts store for $20 and install it in the parking lot. When she picked up her car the fan motor was extremely loud so she walked around grabbed the service manager, opened up the glove box, pulled the side flat, pulled the filter and low and behold there in all it’s glory was a shiny new black zip tie on the other side of the filter.

She took a picture of it, turned and took a picture of the service manager and said “Before I contact my attorney can you explain how this happened?”.

She called me on her drive home to let me know she now had “Free” Lifetime Oil Changes from the Stealership.

I am proud knowing that my on the surface girly girl wife has the skills to know better!
Yeah, the cabin air filter is the biggest scam around. It literally takes longer to unload the glove box than it does it change the filter. Wait, I take that back. The biggest scam is buying a replacement key fob. We got 2 with our new truck. After a couple years one of them started acting up. Sometimes it would work, other times not. I figured this can't cost more than $15-20 bucks. Wrong. Dealership wanted $150 for the fob plus $75 to program it. $225 for something that probably cost $5 to make. I decided to just use my key.

Hi: WillyB... Here's a pic of the cabin air filter from my wife's car. After I changed the $35. filter it cost $48. to have our mechanic take the blower apart to extricate the petrified mouse. My wife was right... something did die in her car!!! Alf

The Sacramento area counties (one of the 5 regions for covid restrictions) in on stay home as of midnight tonight. The restrictions kick in when the number of ICU beds available falls below 15% I got an email from Sonoma County Parks (not in the Sac area....they have half a dozen campgrounds) that the campgrounds are closing in the morning until at least January 9.
