Weird, google groups wouldn't let me just reply to that, i had to copy
and paste.

Anyway, I would really like to do this, and the dealer has said they
could do it.

Is it worth it just to do it myself, or should i just have the dealer
do it?

I don't want to break anything and i know hardly anything about cars.

Has anyone else done this, or has anyone paid a dealer to do it? Any
help is appreciated, thanks.
