a7riv ibis or sensor mount repair

I bought a Like New minus a7riv from Keh 11 months ago (six month warranty).  In in the past month, the IBIS has been occasionally vibrating loudly when turned on in the downward position.  Probably unrelated, but this only happed after updating firmware.  Yesterday, the sensor was not aligned in the frame in a photo resulting in a dark corner.

There's this article about cracked sensor mounts which I suspect.  Does anyone know if this is a minor repair, or if they replace the entire sensor assembly?  The later sounds like it might be beyond economic repair which would be a bummer if it is a plastic sensor mount failure.

I bought it for $2527 at Keh.  Maybe it's depreciated another 15% without this issue, $2,148 if selling private party.

It looks like Keh has a repair service, $350 flat fee for minor repairs.  Would you recommend sending this to them or to Precision Camera?
