    If you can find a good one shouldn't be that hard to change. Any good used parts place should be able to source a used one for you from the rust belt if there isn't any locally.

    I replaced mine on my 02 it was spot welded so just had to drill them all out. The worst part is just disconnecting everything from the old core support and reconnecting to the new one. Takes a few hours but it wasn't too bad
