Figures....I'm STILL waiting for the dealer to get the part to fix it the first time....I assumed that if I waited a while before taking it in to be fixed, the rush would be over. Dealer assured me, 'Why, yes, we have the part. Bring it on in tomorrow."
No good deed goes unpunished, as they in fact did not have the part in stock...but they did tell me that they were required to disconnect the cruise, now that it was in the shop. After arguing the point for five minutes, I said, "Fine...disconnect it." So they did.
I took the keys, started it up, pulled it one foot forward, (still in the service lane), shut it off, popped the hood, and reconnected it. Drove off, smiling. :mrgreen:
Worth the aggravation, just to see the service manager's face.
