Repairing was simple. The old timer assemply was easy to remove after opening the console panel. Installing the replacement part was a simple reversal of the steps. It was that easy. First, however, I unpluged the unit! Then after opening the console I found that two flanges held the timer unit on one side (these are what was broken on the old part) and a screw on the other. I had to unhook the electrical harness from the old part (a bit of tugging) and unscrew the ground. Putting it back together was actually a bit easier because I knew what to expect. In short, this was a fix within my reach and doing the work myself saved a service call.
