They do indeed get stiffer over time, even more so in areas where there are actually 4 seasons. The ones on my old truck became solid at one point and i finally got new ones because it was a pain in the *** to accelerate using the button lol


you might want to either buy it on ebay or at a junkyard though. list is $123.76 with the board for just 1 lol

You might run into a problem with the clock spring and electrical. Its not the same, everyone always ends up backing away from attempting the swap. Maybe you'll be the first successful one though, that would be cool.
