I mentioned several weeks ago that the Corvette's differential was leaking--and the dealer told me that it might be $485 to repair it--or it might be $1985. They wouldn't really know until it was well under way, because they weren't sure if they could remove the differential without dropping the transmission.
Fortunately, I found a Corvette specialist who has a more realistic view of what his time is worth--and who knew that he could remove the differential without dropping the transmission. He charged me a bit more than $500 to replace the two leaking seals. (There was so much dirt that the dealership missed one of the leaks.)
Anyway, if you are in need of car repair in the Boise area, let me recommend All Things Automotive at 617 N. Linder Rd., Meridian, ID. Mathew Lenord runs it, and while he is a Corvette specialist, he won't turn his nose down at repairing lesser automobiles.
