Sorry but VDO repair shops pay hefty franchise fee to VDO and their contract
specifically prohibits them from selling parts only.  Also, some states have
laws that prohibit this as well to prevent people from "clocking" their car,
just as some states still won't allow you to pump your own gas.

Around here, they get $55 to replace "one tiny flexible gear" so be prepared
to bend over and smile...  ;^)
