  1. No idea on cost of getting piwis, only that, I believe, it can only be done at a $tealership.

  2. By far, the larger issue with the power steering systems on these cars is heat, not debris. More power steering pumps fail from overheating than anything else. There are a couple of aftermarket companies producing add on coolers because of this issue.

  3. On thing you are not considering is that the control module itself may be involved. If that is the case, you are going to need a sharp tech and access to the PIWIS system.

I suspect it is the same for the 2011 and 2012 model years as well. First, their is only one screw to remove, using a T2 Torex wrench. It in the front, middle of the panel. You need a panel pry tool or strong fingers to release the front catches that are still holding it in place. Slip the tool between the panel and the glove box at one end to get the snaps to release. The end at the firewall is held in place with two rubber fingers that
