So yesterday this broke.
Now I’ve no a/c, which I can put up with as this isn’t some furnace like some here live in, and I’m reduced to Armstrong* steering. Did a lap of the house today to see how that was going to work out. It’s bearable provided you keep your speed at about a fast walk at all times, something of an issue if you’re parking.
* arm strong, as in that’s what you need when your steering and a/c belt breaks.
