    Anyone car to venture how much this little beauty costs to replace?


    $575!!!

    I wonder if I could just shove a charcoal briquette up there instead?
    I had to replace the catalytic converter on my father's 1986 Taurus. Took it into the dealer and they said $475 to $500. Took it in for the actual appointment and they came back and said it would be $1200. Ford no longer made/stocked the part and they had to have it custom made.

    Took it to my mechanic and he fabricated it and installed it for $600! :)

    steve

    oops forgot to say it is a mercedes and the only ones that fit are genuine parts .
    Be thankful you don't live in the desert, Steve. We're lucky if we get more than one year out of window wipers. That's now about $40 per year for my Toyota. When did windshield wipers become so expensive? I remember buying them for about $10 in 2004 for the same car!
