Isn't it nice to be smart and appreciated? Even if it is only knowledge passed on from someone else, it's fun to be correct!
I do enjoy helping out most often. A lot of people have shared their knowledge with me and I like passing it on.
I am finding trusting my repair intuition more and more pays off.
I find that often with these cars, what seems like a looming major repair often can be corrected with careful analysis and doing just what is needed to fix the problem.
It is very helpful with the identical design solutions from car to car. For an example 201's and the 124's both having cable rear window winders, similiar door checks, suspensions etc.
