comment Volvo 940 Drivers power window won't go up
+1, if the motor were dead it wouldn't go down. Plus, a lot of manufacturers run full current through the switches, which induces corrosion.

comment Wheel re-torqueing, how is it done?
I see, so the answer is: Just make sure they are still torqued--don't loosen and re-tighten. Thanks. I feel better knowing that I am doing it the correct way.
