Do they have one? How much is 50% of the cost? You'll still have to modify it otherwise it will eventually fail again.
Modifying the replacement, before they install it, won't be possible. The dealer has to install it, I have to pay for it, then I get reimbursed. Not the best scenario, but if I get the original back, modification of both could be possible.
I was told the part is available, but I guess I'll know when it's in when they call me. I was told there was very little signs of wear, and the cam looked fine. I wasn't there to look at it, but I trust the shop.
I wasn't given an exact dollar amount, in fact the guy handling the claim wouldn't even give me a dollar amount, just that I should have to pay anymore than 50%. The dealer told me I shouldn't have to pay anymore than $100. I believe the dealer has the ability to help customers as with these things too, and I don't know if they are or not, didn't ask either.
Being as how my part chirpped just a couple of times before I changed the oil, and hasn't since I think, and the dealer thinks, I caught it very early.
One thing is for certain, I'm sticking with Mobil 1, despite it's price.
