seems to becoming a common problem this. So much so, the dealers will probably have a bullitin about it. So they should know what to and will be able to claim back costs. Dealers only seem to have a problem with things like this without bullitins. Most poor sods don't have or use brains at my dealers so are utterly useless on the warranty side with an instruction :)

I was told by my dealer that it is covered by the warranty, that was without me even asking.
