Update - I took the part out and went to the Chevrolet dealer to get a new one. Once I got there, the old parts guy spent about 10 minutes on the computer, kept asking me what kind of vehicle I had, and then finally told me that the part I had taken out of the truck isn't for my truck! It looks identical to the right one, but it's not. The one I had only goes in a Skylark or Impala, not a Silverado.
So, I bought the truck used from a Ford dealer last winter. I took it in to get fixed for the intermittent problem as soon as I bought it, because the truck came with an aftermarket warranty - I didn't buy it, it just came with it. Having the work done there would result in a lower out of pocket expense for me. Anyway, the FORD dealer is the one that put the wrong part in and it ended up costing me almost $300 because it wasn't covered under the warranty.
So now, I'm wondering if I can get my money back for their error. I know it's been almost a year, but I didn't feel like going back as I couldn't afford another repair if that's what it needed.
Thoughts? Do I have a chance of getting my money back from the dealer?
P.S. The new/correct part works great.
