Quick delivery half the price
I ordered this part on Dec 29 . It was delivered on Dec 31. The price was about 1/2 what the local national brand parts stores quoted - and "we can order it for you". The part fit perfectly and the installation was simple- AFTER I watched the video. I have no interest in A1 EXCEPT for being a very satisfied customer. Sammie Simmons Reynolds, GA
