I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
Thank you for your attention to the rating requirement.

this indicates that the mechanics stripped out and will need to be replaced, happens from time to time as the vehicles age. This is not really a DIY job but if you are looking for a good non dealer option check out or for options

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
