My maintenance warranty is over, but I think I could probably get them to fix it since it's documented prior to it being over. In any case, should be cheap. I'm still under a CPO too.
It won't be covered under warranty, but there is a recall for this. You need to let your SA know about it. You do not have to pay out of your own pocket for this.
