    Looks like it's been on the car a while - think they'll still fix it for a fee even if it's out of warranty. When mine broke I just took it off the car.

    From what I heard this is a moderatly common issue. My freind actually is having to replace his QTP as well. The servo motor basically fell off. It had been on the car though for like 2 years and not sure what the life span of those are given the heat they endure.?
