M8 compression release blew out of head

Had a video, but can't attach because of missing security token? Anyway... anyone ever seen or heard of this happening? It's an '18 with 18K.

It could not have unscrewed cause the wires were intact and untwisted... strange noises, for sure!

Ruh-ruo, looks like you will be paying for that repair as you have probably voided your warranty....
