Ho ho ho...
Well, last spring I found that the element in the driver's side footwell wasn't moving anymore, so I trucked on down to the local dealer where they said the element needed replacing (C$31), along with the vacuum switch-over valve (C$112). What do you know - winter is back with a fury. Are these items repairable (ie DIYer)?? If not, can I replace them myself? The dealer is charging 1.7 hours for the entire job - and I don't mind pulling this stuff apart myself.
