To put a device that is safety critical in a hidden spot that requires tools
to get at is stupid beyond belief. Mine failed while driving and it was not
until I caused road rage from another driver who I turned in front of
thinking I had signaled that I saw the indicator lights not working. It was
Saturday afternoon, snowing, and there are no mechanics that work on Sat.
Its no wonder that GM is in trouble. A person needs to be a contortionist,
needs a socket, a torx wrench and small hands to get the old unit out. I
feel sorry for someone who can not do it themselves. It would take at least
$30 in labour to replace a $3 part.
