Re: Cruise Control Question

I haven't heard of this being a very well known problem with the L series, plus the cost and duration of any legal action would more than likely far outweigh any perceived benefits. It this point...

I'll have to give that a shot, I'm back at school now so it may be a couple weeks before I am home near my tools again, but I'll see what I can do. Punching from the inside out might be tricky...
