Is this procrastination or just avoidance? The cable between the release handle and pedal on the emergency brake on my W220 is either broken or disconnected. It's a fairly simple fix, but it entails probably 30-45 minutes on my back, stuffed under the driver's side dashboard.
Every time I get ready to work on the car for something else I think about tackling it, but I usually talk myself out of it. As retentive as I am about my cars and their condition, it's such an uncomfortable job to do I just choose not to do it (avoidance) which I would consider not procrastinating. Or am I arguing semantics?
