I just did this DIY repair, and so far all is working just fine. I put it through its paces, breaking tires loose on dry pavement, therefore loosing traction control just slightly.

I will post again once it's gone through bad weather. Up here in the Pacific Northwest we get ice and snow. We'll see how she does.

I would like to advise on the fix though. Once you have the actuator/servomotor out, you will need to rotate the main gear, full 180 degrees. I thoroughly inspected mine, and the effected area was 1/2 of the gear circumference. Not only could I see the wear, but the other 1/2 of the gear had "fresh" green grease on it. Also, you need to pay very close attention to the gear position when reinstalling the worm gear motor. When you reinstall it, it will cause the main gear to move. Just be very careful.

I'll report back when I have updated news.
