Loose heat sinks in 6600M

I was moving one of my 6600M to a new location and as I picked it up and turned it some I could hear something rattling loose inside. Opening it up I found two small heat sinks stuck to the side of the case. Not knowing where they came from I filed a work request. In the meantime I found an article on the Flex site detailing a cooling update where two similar heat sinks such as the two I found loose are being removed and replaced with larger ones. My other 6600M already has the updated heat sinks so I figure this one is due.

Am I correct here?

Thanks and 73

    Yes, open a Help Desk ticket and enter the serial number of the radio along with the other information, along with a description of what you found.
