A Lesson in Servicablility

By | March 9, 2010

When I was a kid, there was a joke: “How many [politically in-correct Northern Germans] do you need to change a light bulb? – Five – One stands on the table and four turn the table to screw the bulb out and back in.” One Sunday I played “How many screws do you have to remove to replace a head light bulb on a VW Passat?” The answer is 26. I actually removed both head lights in the end (30 screws) and replaced all the bulbs in the hope that I don’t have to do it that quickly again. But with the nearest VW dealer now something like 25-30 miles away, a quick stop is not so easy any more.

But at least I learned something about cars;-)
