    ......the drain/gutter/garbage part THAT WAS DEFECTIVE, SHEARED OFF AND LAYING IN THE BELLY PAN......

    Based on my experience I can say with certainty that removing the ‘culprit’ BEFORE visiting the dealership led to the proper outcome in your case.

    Glad it worked out!

    As am I! The car was at the dealer for longer than I expected, but we had a brand new vehicle for a loaner during that time (one of those mornings being -12 where other diesels in the area - including an Equinox Diesel - did not start) so no issue there. No dealer in the area had one of those axles, so they had to special order.

    Again, had I not known about the likely culprit, I'd likely have to pay to replace the axle - or had to expend a bunch of energy to make them do it for free. That would have been awful. Still mindblowing it's not covered.

    Went to do an oil change today, guess what I found laying on the belly pan!!!! Deflector sheared right where everyone else's did. Part is cheap, the oil change was more of a mess than usual and took the PS wheel off to fish out the deflector.

    Be sure to inspect the CV boot for cuts/damage, could lead to premature CV axle failure.

    It must've fallen further into the center of the car than mine did. I was able to lay on the ground and reach up and over the axle and down into the belly pan, pick it up, and drop it out onto the ground.

    As @Rivergoer mentioned, definitely check that inner boot there. It falls directly onto it - wonderful design.
