Replaced mine yesterday - works fine now. Same connector burn although not as bad as the pictures. Pretty easy fix - no reason to have the dealer do this unless you just cannot turn a screwdriver or use a wrench. I am not mechanic, it took about 30-45 minutes. Bought resistor and harness. My connector was not repairable.
And yes the "green thing" is the resistor.
