Question about 2001 Volkswagen Beetle
The A/C, heater, and fan on my Beetle just lost all power. Nothing functions. I checked the fuses and they're all fine. A mechanic says there might be a failure at the switches for the A/C & fan. Recommended replacing the "head unit??" for $420. Mechanic said the "head unit" would cost $275. Not sure what this part is. Can I get this cheaper from a parts dealer?
Generally parts from a shop are more expensive. They buy the part from some parts store at wholesale then charge more for the part so they make some sort of profit off of the part, then charge more to install it. I would check the local parts store if it is something you might want to try to install yourself. I am not sure what the mechanic means by "head unit". You might want to talk to him/her a little more about what part it is that they think might need replaced.
