Default Can I repair a potentiometer ?

I live in Costa rica and parts are very very high
Wonder if this board know how much to ship a potentiometer here and maybee a new switch?
Had tech by today he says I need a new key switch and a potentiometer
So I removed the potentiometer and took it apart was amazed at it's simple design other than the switch what can go wrong? pls enlighten me
Could the tech be wrong?
He was here an hour and had run many tests but spoke very litte english so I turn to this board.

is he refering to a pot box under the gas pedal? If so, upgrade that to a MCOR. Which switch are you needing? I am sure many here (including myself) could send parts to Costa Rica.

Yes it is under the go pedal how would the upgrade help and how much would it be including shipping?

The switch is a key switch

Thanks for the reply

The MCOR replaces the Pot under the pedal and is (in some people's opinions) far superior to the Pot. The MCOR is a sealed unit so when dealing with the coastal regions this aides in preventing damage from moisture. The upgrade kit comes complete with everything you need to do the changover (including directions).

A new Pot for your car will run you roughly $200, the MCOR upgrade will run you about $300. A new keyswitch (aftermarket individually keyed) will run you $20.

once you are able to send PM's (I think it takes 3 regular posts for that to kick in) we can make arrangements if you are interested. Shipping via Priority mail is approximately $44

the way to tell is the location. A pot will be directly under the accel pedal, a MCOR will be mounted along the outside of the passenger side frame rail.

some techs do call the MCOR a pot since in reality it is a Pot inside. If you already have a MCOR, the cost goes down for a replacement to $200 for just the black MCOR unit itself.
