im not trying to split hairs fellas, but to me, the word "identical" means that you can take a part off one car and without any modification whatsoever bolt it onto your car. theres no doubt in my mind the one I bought will work exactly like my original one, but the mounting of the actuator onto its bracket is slightly different (rotated about 30? degrees), which keeps the original vac line from proper fitment. its not hard to remedy, and its only going to cost $0.25 for the hose, but when it comes down to it, they are not in fact identical.
