DON'T BUY FROM A DEALERSHIP!!!!!!!!!! Just go to an auto parts store and it will probably be like half the price.

Well i called speedway auto parts they have it listed for a rebuilt $160 or so with a $40 core, but the could not get one. Same with autozone it was $190 rebuilt with a $50core wich they didnt have. So i called the dealership for a brand new it is $230 with a $75 core. Which im not mad but how can you not have one or you cant get one

5.) Unbold top bolt and unbolt 3bolts on motor mount on right side fender area.
6.)jack up motor from oil pan "block of wood" and get under car and unbolt poss termanal 10mm nut. and unplug. i found it easyer to pull from bottom.
