I get the DIY route for some repairs, and of course labor is always much higher than parts when paying someone to do the work, but I'm curious how many people here could pull off doing their own work when it comes to the bigger (more expensive) repairs, such as those BGM had done.
Yeah this was no DIY. For the evaporator the tech had to remove the dash to get to it.
