If you don't get answers to your question, and live near Bergen county, I recommend the Swedish Connection in Bergenfield. When I was on an assignment there a couple of years ago they handled a few issues that came up on my 9000. I don't know if their rates have gone up, but IIRC they would charge about $180 for a 2 hour job. I think they charge actual time, not the inflated "book time". Both times I was there they did an excellent job. They even helped me get a rental car from the Thrifty agency across the street. Walt Kienzle 1991 9000T
