I've got the same problem on my 2011. Have 5000 miles on it and went to tighten the chain but I can only turn the nut about 1/4 turn then it locks up solid. Called my dealer, as its still on warranty and they said they haven't heard of it before, but that I should bring it it. I didn't feel like trailering it 60 miles, as its mid winter here, so I bought the parts and thought I'd fix iit myself rather than make 2 trips- one to deliver it and then to pick it up. I put a 1/2 inch drive impact on it with no luck. Then even tried a 3/4 inch impact, and still no luck. Guess I will be taking it in to get them to screw around with it, rather than me spend time, that I don't have, on it. Just makes you wonder what kind of crap metal is holding me up from the pavement. Wonder how they keep getting away with it. if it was a GM, Dodge, etc. there would be recalls. But I guess its obviously not going to fall off or come loose. Wonder if half of these parts that the factories are using, aren't being sourced out of China, where anything goes, it seems???
