Hooray for a lifetime warranty on the part with 24 months of roadside assistance.
Boo for me needing to take the part out and hand it to the guy at the auto parts store to get it swapped.
Hooray for knowing an amateur mechanic who'll help with the work for cheaps.
Boo for needing to take public transportation or bum rides 'till then.
&c &c &c.
I really want to go to sleep. :)
EDIT: Boo for either facebook (lol facebook) or LJ, whoever screwed up the auto-update-FBook-with-LJ-post feature.
