These valves get gummed up in use and are easily cleaned. The only likely reason it would have been swapped out is if it was unrepairable. This probably was done at the dealer, the tech popped the old one back in the box the new one came from,and it ended up back on the parts shelf by mistake. I guess you are saying it was mailed to your home from the dealer, and thus was probably an item they had in stock. If they are honest, and have a record that one had been replaced recently in their shop, and stock inventory is off - maybe they will replace it without a hassle.
