Took it to dealer and he says he can't duplicate problem and is reluctant to do anything
Any suggestions on next step. This is very frustrating.
It is critical to have the bolts properly torqued when installing. I'd bet they didn't do that and it is now causing problems. I'd tell them to replace ALL bolts with the proper ones AND to torque to the specifications as noted in the TSB.
