Jeep UpdatePosted: February 2, 2011
Sorry about my frustration-infused rant the other day. I was just mad at Fed Ex and their lying website.
We got the backseat in the mail yesterday!
Also as a bonus we got our stickers in the mail too!
We put those on right away. Ok, truth be told Laurie put them on because if I put them on, the stickers would be crooked.
A close up view:
Now, on to the bad news. It seems as if the Jeep and car wash had a disagreement. One thing led to another and the Jeep was left without windshield wipers that work. The car wash ripped them right off the motor! Awesome.
Joey to the rescue! Normally, I would have waited and brought the car to his shop, but with the impending ice storm, I wanted the wipers fixed so Laurie can drive it to work in the morning. Thanks Joe!!
Joey folded the windshield down to gain access to the wiper motor. The whatzimuzit got disconnected from the thingamajig and needed to be replaced.
The wiper assembly is located inside the windshield and actually very easy to get to. It only took like half an hour to fix.
Here are a couple of pictures of Laurie leaving for work after the ice storm last night:
