I've got 2 shut off valves in a really awkward place that need to be removed and replaced. I'm decently handy and I took a crack at them and failed, I need someone who knows what hes doing. I would rather give my business to an arfcommer or a friend of an arfcommer.

Anyone got a number for a decently priced plumber?

I still appreciate the recommendation man, he was really polite on the phone and once I told him that I was just going to do it myself he even went as far as to give me some recommendation's on how to do it.

And yeah he was giving the call to someone else I think.

With it being the weekend, he probably had something going on. I can't say I blame him. He sounds like a cool enough guy to give you a few minutes of his time on the phone to give you a few pointers. It does suck to have something break and then needing it fixed now and the associated price for that kind of service.

I learned to patch a very large hole in my drywall from videos on youtube. Pretty amazing the shit you can learn nowadays without leaving your house. Now to figure out how to fix my power windows.

if you are withing driving distance from chandler pm me and we will get it done cheap. check your switches for corrosion first though. sometimes teh contacts just need some cleaning with alcohol and a q tip inside the switch.

Open door panel. Unplug plug from regulator motor. Insert test light into one side of connector, operate switch both directions, repeat on other side. If you get light on both sides of connector you need to replace the motor, if not your problem lies elsewhere, most likely in a switch, but it could be a number of other problems also.

ETA: oh yea, I think those Hyundais have the stupid cable drive window regulators, in which case, the cable is a probable cause. If you can hear the motor when you hit the switch, you have a broken cable.
