Possibly, but as an added benefit, it'll keep humans off your car, too

@user1936026 FWIW, it was a very well-written question. You certainly gave Ducati plenty of information to work with :) +1

One important note: the motor (pictured) may not be the problem at all. It may be the regulator. I've replaced 3 of these in my 2001.

This is the EXACT same part that my 2001 Jetta 1.8T takes in the front driver side door.

comment Looking for software/device to track members of a riding group
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this question is actually asking for a software recommendation. You may have better luck on Software Recommendations, but be sure to read about what is on topic there before posting.

comment Car stalls and won't restart, but disconnecting the battery fixes it?
My guess is that disconnecting the battery is resetting trim levels to defaults, and that's why the battery "fixes" it.

Out of total curiousity, did you try popping the clutch while still doing highway speeds to see if you could bring it back?

Do NOT take the time to call 911. It's precious seconds that you have to work on an escape and helping your passengers.

comment Clutch smell after botched attempt at accelerating on a ramp
swarm also mentioned: "You could observe the gear shifting. Generally a burnt off clutch plate causes gears to get stuck while shifting. As for the smell, I wouldn't rely much on it. Burnt clutch plates don't smell much untill they get really hot."

comment Measuring A/C refrigerant I got 96 PSI, is 96 PSI bad?
@syn1kk Fair enough. It certainly makes sense to be concerned about being too broad. Hope you have some luck with your issue. I brain-dumped everything I could think of about a/c.

Seems to me that your question is really asking for help diagnosing your AC issue. You may want to change the title from "is 96psi bad" to something to the effect of your AC not working.

comment Part number for intake warm air flap on VW Jetta MkII
Have you tried contacting a dealership to ask about part number and pricing? Even if you don't purchase it from them, they're using willing to supply the part name and number (along with the price...)
