re Renew vs. Replace (zero Audi content!)

Alex said:
 "I feel badly about this, but if
I go to my local garage mechanic and ask him to renew all 
the fasteners in
my front suspension, he'll probably shoot me a funny look 
and an even
more colorful phrase, and if I persist in correcting his 
misconstructions of
speech I might find, as John Gotti once put it, that "my 
head got away
from my hat" before he even gets started on my car."  

Actually you feel *bad* about this- if you feel badly about, 
let's say,  your mechanic, he may indeed take umbrage! ;-)
