Let me just say that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished. You can FOLLOW UP AT ANYTIME, even after rating.

Labor time is about 2 hours, roughly $255 on the average.

There has been a factory service bulletin, (not a recall) for that type of concern.
