Sorry to necro such an old thread. But I wish I had seen this back then when I bought my car.
Took it to the mechanic and they quoted me $700 to replace the part which includes labor. ($300 part).
I'm pretty confident with working on my car, so I'm going to attempt to do it myself. Anyone have any leads to good pricing and/or the difficulty of doing it myself?
Here are some things I've done so on my own so you guys can get a feel for what I can do:
- Complete brake job: Changed front and rear rotors and pads
- Low beam HID kit upgrade (I've removed that blasted bumper about 10x, LOL)
- Spark plug change
- Cabin air filter change
I've also swapped out an alternator on my old car, so I'm no stranger to serpentine belts and such.
What do you guys think? Doable?
