If they break just pull it apart and make a new shaft out of aluminium, better than paying 150 bucks for a new unit and the thing is still made out of crappy plastic that'll break in 2 seconds.

looks good but how much to manufacture in alloy

There are brand new one's on ebay with a two year warranty for $95 inc postage but yeah the only question i have is will it now strip the other plastic components.

Only time will tell but i will give it a go if the price is right as my drivers door just snapped

I thought Ford themselves were making them out of metal now.
