I purchased a kit a couple of months ago. This is what is included. Tho the top plastic portion needed to be assembled.
What you are reusing is the base, the contacts and the locking solenoid.
In my case, what I really needed was the electronic board, as the contact pads where worn out. Buying the kit worked out for me.
