where did you order it from? When you get it take it to the shops that told you it didnt exist and wave it around.

What is a universal model? I'v heard of universal fit, is that what you meant. Thats about what I paid total. I got the part cheaper but the install was more.

Yeah. He didn't have much time to shop around though.... Good luck with it, and hopefully you'll get some newfound power from it Always a nice bonus of "needed repairs" as my parents learn of them....
