Had a couple of window 'events' recently so new battery fitted. The old one was December 2011 so I guess I've had money's worth.

Service & replacement A/C condenser on my daughter's A-Class.

Default Intake tube repair

During an oil change today, the techs broke the intake accordion big time while getting my clean filter out. Since this is my daily driver and I really need to drive, it was time for a quick repair.

I cut the accordion section out, leaving the end of the last pleat, and sanded those down to leave a 1/8th lip.

​​​​​​i purchased a couple 3" intake couplers and a 3" chromed plastic tube and with not too much effort got it all fit together.

i left everything loose until it was properly fit back to the car, tightened it down, and I'm good to go until I get a new intake tube.

$30 and a couple hours labor is a good save.
