I know servicing the car is steep , but this appears to be over the top.

Replace interior fan motor - $930 Hmmmm, never seen one die, 914's, X1/9's, MG's, tr7's, ???

Brake fluid flush-$170

air bag maintainance -$145

Parking brake adjustment-$145 ?????

Clutch squeak $$145

plastic window cleaned $74

Cab sealer $129

Replace front tires $580 Nice to see you are using the Pirelli P-Zero's, or the Michelin PS2's

Alignment $ 449

Engine roller bearing $ 557 If this is what I think it is, you can do it in 10 minutes and the part is around $50

I am not familiar with the costs on some of the things, but some of the things don't add up for me. You must have some serious wheels my front tires are 245-35-19's and I get them replaced for about $450, Alignment seems a bit high but you are talking Porsche service costs.

If the engine roller bearing is the same as the tensioner bearing, mine fell off my car, I got it from Sunset, literally 5 minutes it can be on the car. Torque bolt, slide belt, remove bolt, reverse done. As for the fan motor I would do some checking on my own. Check the switch, check fuses, and so on. It is typically alot of work to change the motor, but these motors are very reliable. GL

Interior fan motor replacement labor time 996= approx. 15 minutes. Airbag maintenance ( profound check up airbag system - not only fault codes reading ) labor time= approx. 15 minutes. Not that cheap over there.

In the right corner behind the glove box ( under the interior filter ), practically the same possition as in the Cayenne, 3 or 4 small bolts to remove and slide out.

You said Glove box I assume you have an 03 or newer. . . But even still that is amazing that it should be that easy to get to. I had to replace the flap seals in one of my X1/9's and dear God man I had to remove the shifter console, the center console, raise the dash, and then grunt alot and finally after 6 screws placed by a contortionist were removed it came out. Sounds like a good opp to do a write up.
