Has anyone replaced the lifter on their own? What parts are needed? I am pretty handy so I may consider doing this myself if feasible.
From what I heard, the engine has to be taken apart. There is no mechanical problem with the lifters, just the annoying noise.

One shop quoted me about 800 bucks for the job, the parts itself is 12 dollars a piece, the rest of it is labor.

So if you can live with it, then I recommend not to fix it. BTW, my dealer quoted me 3k for the job. Lol
