Appears to be a common problem that I am now experiencing. The culprit is a gear that fails in the linkage. But, it is not sold as a stand alone part. You must purchase the entire mechanism. Retail is $1346 so I am told for each side. Disappointing as I enjoy the vehicle. Dealer wants $2100 per side to repair...
Has anyone found a fabricator that can manufacture this gear for installation successfully? Or, perhaps a shop/company that sells the gear as a stand alone part?
Thanks
