Customer Question

My Audi gear shifter broke off I think. I have pictures. I wonder what it will cost at a shop or if I should ask a welder to weld it back on. I have not a lot of money. In addition I am 500 miles from home and need to get my son back in 3 days. On some forums people talked about welding it and I have attached an image of that solution as well. It is the last image.

id replace it....what zip code is the car in right now?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
90026.
What does a replacement cost and how long would it take you think.
The car is not worth that much and I hardly use it.
Would a weld job last 30000 miles?
Where would I go? Does a mechanic do that? I had my car towed to a AAA recommended shop.

Wow, that is amazing. So no need to get to it from underneath. I can pick that piece up or have the shop order it. Not sure what is faster or cheaper. Thanks so much for your help. I appreciate how precise and helpful you are. 5*!!!!!

Would you say the 2 hours will cost about $200 to $300 plus the part?
Would you buy the item now and then pick it up in the AM?
Expert:  eauto replied 11 months ago.

i would call and talk to the junkyard first thing and verify... probably closer to 300 in labor...

Expert:  eauto replied 11 months ago.

but depending on the labor rate...its usually 2 ta 3 hours depending on rust or corrosion
