Car's in the shop, definitely a bad bearing and possibly a bad front-right axle, somewhere in the $3-500 range to repair. *sigh*
It'd be nice if it were on the lower end of that range... Please send good car-ma to little Banana Jr. if you're the type to remotely share emotions with inanimate objects!

A bearing is cheap. But things that can get damaged by a bad bearing aren't. Yikes and good luck.

Well, computers seem to magically repair themselves when I do technical support....maybe I can threaten to do car repairs on her? Do you think she'll believe me enough to self-repair?

Is there a large VW Van named Little Banana Sr. out there somewhere? If it's costly, we'll be treating you this evening if you can make it out with us ;)

I am amused, intrigued, and probably shouldn't tell you that your car appears to be having all the same problems that my '02 Protege had last year.

Um, if your airbag light comes on it's a $700 repair.... which was the point where I gave up and bought a new car (because it also needed new tires and a 60k service, and I figured new cars come with new tires and don't need 60k services for another 60k.)

(and yes, hi! i am alive! and so are you! it's all so exciting! we should try to witness the liveliness in person some time...)

Hmm. Well I put new tires on it when I got it because it had crazy Z-rated shoes that spun in the slightest rain... and i got it at 68k so hopefully it had that maint. already. heh.

Sneaking up on 100k, will probably hit that in a year to a year and a half at the rate I'm racking up miles, and that means new timing belt. whee.
*crosses fingers, knocks on wood, etc.*
Car's in the shop, definitely a bad bearing and possibly a bad… - another LJ. or: how i learned to stop worrying and love this life-thingy
