Sounds high. Its not the easiest job, the dash usually has to be pulled to do it. I have done it before without removing the dash but it was a pain. There isn't anything particularly complicated about the job at all, its just very labor intensive.

I have the same problem as of about 3 days ago. I have the thing set to go tomorrow. Any advice on replacing the core? Any tips or tricks you can add to help me out with the project?
