This is basically fixing the symptom and not fixing the problem. Gearheads seems reluctant to respond to these issues for some reason. I am hoping to get this resolved soon as my summer cruzin plans went out the window in a hurry.
Awfully expensive add-on not to work properly or bring much interest from the vendor.

Please keep us informed if you can. Usually, hot fluid just leads to seal deterioation. If the thing is locking up, I would think there is something wrong in the way they adapted the housing leading to some type of binding inside.

Have you come across other complaints?
