Mine does the same thing with the 5 second noise and the CEL code and i did not use a screw to reattach the actuator cable i drilled out the reminder of the post and stuck the end of the cable in the broken ckip ands squirted a whole bunch of superglue on it.

I actually had assumed that the cable was a little slack as a result of my jimmy rigging and thought that was the cause of the actuator noise. Has anyone had a broken clip replaced and had no issues with the 5 second noise at startup?

I really want to replace the clip with the Central Florida Motorsports all metal one i purchaced but i just cant get the old clip off its post. I really do not want to fully dissasemble the whole assembly just to replace the clip. I tried popping the lock ring off the post and pulling on the clip and it does not budge.

Any ideas?
