As far as I know, this is the most common way they fail on these cars.
The one in 464/1000 sh*t the bed on me the first week I owned it. Pulled the good one out of 195/2000 and swapped it in. Lasted about two months before it died in the exact same way.
One of these days, I'm going to disassemble one of them and figure out exactly what cheap, plastic, PITA little part failed and have it copied in delrin, aluminum or steel. I fully plan on getting about 20 sets of these made at the same time.
The only downside is that you have to remove practically 70% of the interior to do the swap.
