Another electric steering failure

2013 1LE electric motor gave up the ghost this morning in Florida ( 45 degrees ) at about 6,000 miles. It went out in a parking garage. I've had previous vehicles' pumps go out on me, but they don't come close to requireing the steering effort my 1LE does. (66 Mustang, '01 Tacoma, '83 S-10 blazer)

Trying to turn a sticky F2 supercar tire (285/35-20) at low speed darn near impossible. Oh, what really tops things off is that the clearance in the garage is 7'2" which means the tow vehicle (flatbed) cannot come and retrieve it!

I will have to worm my way out of that mofo (probably fighting hill-assist!)
