Good points. I had already spoken to the dealer about it. I just have to make sure there is a record of the problem, and The problem is that this is probably NOT a factory defect , so the dealer has to own to it... and, you're right D-mo.
I think I can fix it, but I know that if I cause any damage they are all off the hook then.
I think I'll give it a little more thought.
ps. I want to fix it sooo bad, I'm ready to grab my tools right now and do it.
