Owls can't smell so skunks are on their menu, and they know it. I've seen owl statues used to keep skunks away.

Got a price of about $300 from the Pick Your Part.

If no one wants the whole car they can buy pieces of it from them.

Next question

How much is this car worth?

My basic assumption is any car running is worth $1000. It's priced above that adding or best offer. I don't buy and sell cars often so this is unfamiliar ground for me.

After I get to it. Working under dashboards is not something I can do easily.

Disabling a switch is something I can do, and cheaply, and I'd consider leaving it there.

Low is 30 psi, hi is 225 psi, vent temperature is 45 degrees.

And it's annoying the way the compressor clutch is built I can't tell if the clutch is engaged or not, the pulley has a cover on it.
