The part is very good BUT the online ordering system does not take into consideration if the vehicle is an automatic or manual transmission. The one offered is for an auto and it grinds bad when you put it on, had to remove and get the correct one from the store. Still a great deal though. The guys in the store are great to work with.

    Product was in stock, cheap and was in the car in 20 minutes. I have a 5-speed car and notice no grinding noise other referred to in their reviews. As simple of a fix as you can get.

                    • Q:

                      When Purchasing an item online or in store, is the core charge applied before or after the price given? For example, online a product is $50 with a core charge of $15, does that mean that the total with the core charge is $65, or the total is $50 with $15 refunded once the old part is returned making the total $35?

                        Hi Sean, good question! The core charge will be added to the item price while placing your online order with an In-store pick up or ship to home option. Please be rest assured that the core charge will be refunded back to your original payment method used on your order at the time of returning the core to your nearest Advance Auto Parts store.

                        On the right side just under the exhaust manifolded, You must disconnect the Negative battery cable before you begin work to prevent any shorts. There are "2" Bolted holding this part to the Bell Housing. It is good idea to take off the cable on the started before removing the bolts.
