I replaced both sides since I wanted even wear on them. I consider what Kitchen Aid did to be sub standard. A piece of cord - REALLY!!!!! Pretty cheap if you ask me. The exchange was easy. The hard part was removing the water line and power so the entire unit could be pulled out. What a royal pain! And then of course, the water line and power needed to be reconnected. Overall - an easy fix, but made significantly harder by Kitchen Aid's choice of a cord.
