I have the same problem as well after I bought the $9.99 bundle, originally downloaded the free DLC with the Plus subscription. I contacted Sony Support, and well they're "confident" anything bought from the PS Store can be redownloaded. Tried explaining to them it appears I haven't even purchased the bundle from the store.
If I could get my maps back, that would be great

If you're able to re-download the pack several times, then it doesn't sound like you have the same problem. The error people are experiencing is they can't download it at all because there is no indication in the Playstation Store that it was actually purchased. Maybe people just aren't voting for the Steel Rain maps when you play? You could try setting your preferred maps to the ones in the Steel Rain pack and that should do the trick.

Just to be sure, could you check in the map preferences whether you have the Stahl Arms and Junkyard maps available? If you do not see it in-game it could be that our match making does not find any other players with these maps online (and in their playlist) at the moment you play, hence you are under the impression the DLC has vanished.

No, the only way to keep the free Steel Rain MP is to continue the Playstation Plus subscription. If your PS+ subscription expires, the free Steel Rain MP gets disabled. Presumably it would come back if you reactivate PS+. If you bought the 3-bundle, then it 's a bug that the Steel Rain goes away on PS+ expiry, though.
i bought a year of ps+ and activated it half way through my welcom back free month, then bought the map pack bundle when it came out. the free month ended and but my year stepped right in, yet i lost steel rain and cant redownload it either. sux cuz i still have ps+ active even tho my free month ended and i bought the map pack! >.< i took kz3 out and started playing socom 4 while waiting for this to be fixed
on a side note all the minis games i downloaded for free say expired and im unable to do anything with those either.
argggggggggggggg! bought a year of ps+ and seems like none of my stuff from the first month is good >.>

You should call sony, its sounds like a ps+ problem.
Any news on when we can get are maps back? Are you looking into the problem?
i called and all they said was were aware of the issue and were working on fixing it. check back in a few days or keep trying. i asked if i could look for a forum board or blog on an update or if id even get an email about the issure being resolved and they said no. how are you guys fixing the problem? id really like to play kz3 again with all the maps i bought i enjoy the junkyard lvl alot
