I have no intention of spending that kind of money. I already found a used unit in good working condition for $500.
BTW, Wabco, the maker of the HCU, was acquired in 2020 by a much larger German company, ZF Friedrichshafen. It is one of the world's largest suppliers, with almost 40 billion euros ($45 billion) of yearly sales. Its 160,000 employees make everything from vehicle transmissions to braking and automated-driving technology. The company was original founded by Ferdinand von Zeppelin (yes, that
Zeppelin) to make gears for his airships. Wabco was listed in the US, but it is not a US company, it was based out of Bern, Switzerland. ZF also bought TRW, another big player in the auto and truck industry, among others. 90% of the company's shares are controlled by the Zeppelin Foundation, which is managed by the city of Friedrichshafen.
