You don't need to start the engine to open the top. Just turn the key until it is in the drove position and don't go the extra click to engage the starter.

If it doesn't turn on with A/C, but turns on high when hot, then it is most likely either the ballast resistor, or the relay. If it doesn't turn on ever, then it is most probably the fan itself.

Be careful with the parts. They are from a base. The muffler shows it. The suspension and transmission parts aren't the same. Whether they are the same vintage may also affect how useful the pile is!

If you do your own wrenching, which isn't hard, regular service will be dirt cheap and repairs will only cost the parts. That is, ignoring the expense of buying tools, if you don't have any.

Quickjacks are much better than ramps and jack stands. They are also super fast to deeply. I have not looked back since I got mine.

It's not the arms that are under dimensioned, its the ball joint at the chassis end. A beefier version just adds unsprung weight.

Mothballs work well for me. Yes, the car will smell of mothballs the first time you take it out after hibernation, but that's worth it.

Its the front motor mount. When it gets worn and under strong acceleration, the exhaust makes contact with the chassis and gives exactly this rattle. It could also be one or both transmission mounts.

If the spoiler warning light comes on when the ignition is turned on and then goes out, and doesn't come on when you drive over 75 MPH, the spoiler is working properly.

I believe the light is a warning light and not to indicate that the spoiler is raised. At least that's how it seems to work on my 2004 S.
