Think of it this way:Yes G&G is 50 bucks but I think the extra $ for shippping to and from might be the deal breaker?
Not sure if I`m daring enough to give it a try, more concerned about making things worse rather then better if I open it up and try??
Maybe you would be so kind and offer suggestion on the level of skill / difficulty needed to pull this repair off, reading other threads it sounds like you have some experience.If you have a Phillips and a small flat screwdriver - like for eyeglasses is all one needs besides a bit of courage and patience.
