On my way back to the U-district after work on Tuesday, the sunroof on my car, a 1996 Saturn SL1 Sedan, stopped moving when I was trying to close it. This was a long time in coming — for a while I have had to help the motor get the job done by pulling or pushing on the roof as it opened and closed. So when it finally stopped moving, I suspected that the motor had died. It was a good day to have the roof stuck open, as it was nice and sunny. I took a few parts of the car apart to take a look at the motor, but it ends up that the real problem (apart from the physical friction) was a burnt out fuse. Replacing it allowed the sunroof to be closed. Apparently, ’96 Saturn sunroofs have a corrosion problem, so I am not alone. At some point, I will get around to checking to see how much it might be to get it fixed.

    You oughta make your “random images” on the right correspond with your post, so if you type in “1996 Saturn SL1 Sedan” it’ll pull up any of those pictures you have, and U-district, or or sunny, and etc, does the same.

    I like the idea, but the photos currently aren’t tagged. Maybe someday.
