I for one think the whole woodruff key has been blown way out of proportion. I would be interested in know the exact figures if available of how many of the 03's actually had a problem because I have put over 7000 miles on mine since new and have never had a problem with it. I also never took it in and had any loctite
it or anything else done to it when people started having problems with them. The way I figure it if I haven't had a problem with it, why possibly cause one by letting someone mess with it. Of course your situation is different since you say you already removed it.
