you can either buy a new or used unit it and swap it out or send your unit for rebuild... lots of used ones on www.car-part.com

I know that I can buy parts or a complete system. What I need to know is exactly how to disassemble , remove, replace, etc. Can you provide exact details, steps, etc.? Pictures? Anticipated problems?
Expert:  john -aka eauto replied 1 year ago.

they are technically "non serviceable" so there is no data or instructions for repair... at the dealer we replace..altho there are rebuilders out there if ya search.. Its one of those things that you can attempt to take apart but they do have explosive charge for retraction in a collision so that's why gm or any manual does no provide repair info

I feel that your initial answer should have been that "We have no useful information for you. Professional (dealer) repairs will be required". Please ensure that there will be no charges to my credit card. Thanks.
