So my heat stopped working in my truck last week. After a couple basic diagnostic steps I figured out it was the blend door actuator. I took it to the dealership to see how much they’d charge to fix it, and I shit you not, here is the actual quote:
So how much does this ultra high tech and rare part cost?
So surely you’d have to take half the fucking vehicle apart to get to it, right? Well actually, I needed to remove 12 screws. And it took me about 30 minutes.
Here’s the bad part:
It looks like it jumped a gear, and the gap was no longer aligned properly. I popped the new one in and everything works fine now.
So instead of paying close to $1500 for them to fix it, I paid $15 and did it myself.
Fuck dishonest mechanics.
