Thanks so much for confirming my suspicions about the level of effort and expense involved in performing what is sure to be a temporary repair. Your "get more beer" remarks made me laugh while I was sitting here thinking about the piece of crap sitting in my garage... I told my wife about your experience and she replied "so I guess this means I'll be unlocking the door with a key now, eh?" It's too bad, this 08 is nowhere near as good as the 03 I ran into the ground and handed over to my son. I'm done with GM.
