Hello, the OEM switch can be found here for 185 and some change plus shipping. An aftermarket one can be found HERE for 83 and some change. Book time to replace and adjust it is .6 hr. The labor estimate is way high. Below is info on how to replace it. IT's the same for 2 or*****models.

My goal is to provide 5 star service. Rating/accepting does not cost extra and ensures I'm credited for my time and knowledge. It also does not close your question if you have a follow up concerning this. Thank you for using Just Answer!
