I did not. However I called my dealer and they had the replacement parts in stock. I had them do the recall last weekend.

did not get letter but took it to the dealer and they did the work while I waited. I did call and set up a appointment before the service but it did still take a while for them to complete the service (9:30 until 1:45) so make certain you set aside enough time.

No letter but I had other "issues" and when it was in they said it needed the recall done.

I had work done yesterday. Did not take 4 hours as some have posted. Took about 1.5 hours. Deflection pulley mounting bolt replaced (screw with collar and hex bolt).
