I wonder if you have some different issue causing you to go through motors more than normal. Did Nikon repair it?

I had it repaired by Sanford Camera Repair, which is a Nikon Authorized Repair Station. I purchased the lens used, so perhaps it suffered some insult by the previous owner, but as far as I can tell I've been pretty gentle with it.

I miss the days when I used to be nostalgic.

Michael, your 17-35mm "Mr. Squeaky" and my 28-70mm "Mr. Squeaky" must be brothers.  I've been wondering if mine could be squeaking because I rarely use it, almost never use it actually.  It has been in a Pelican case for years now.  I'm wonder if it's worth having it repaired; would you mind sharing how much Nikon charged to fix your AF motor?
