Sorry about the slow reply. Mine is the same part number as you listed... It's also known as part # 61356923954 ... so if you want to try to pick it up off ebay for cheaper, not a horrible idea.

I know a lot of people have this problem after having the windshield replaced. The windshield on this car was never replaced.

I'm gonna try replacing the sensor and the sensor alone using this guide:

I don't see any air bubbles underneath the rain sensor lens. So hopefully that's all that needs to be done. If not, I'm out about $40 and some time... either way, still a lot cheaper than taking it to the dealer.
