Um, no. On my 200T, it was a $3500 part.


Damn thing *cracked* and kept the fan from running, with disastrous results.
It was not obvious that it had cracked either...I'd consider this a
consumable item, to be changed regularly.

Of course, the fact that it failed also got us to sell the 200T after it was
repaired, replacing it with an A6 quattro avant...which got me to sell my
truck, replacing that vehicle with an S6 avant. So I guess it wasn't all
bad. Rather expensive, once you add in the additional transactions, but what
the hell. :)

'95.5 S6 avant (coming)
'96 A6 quattro avant (wife's)

'90 Francisco Moser fixed gear (trainer)
'87 Wicked Fat Chance (mtb)
