There is no CAR form appropriate to your situation, because:
1. Compensation is an agreement between the SELLER and the LISTING AGENT. It is contractually provided for in the Listing Agreement. The LISTING AGENT then makes an offer of compensation to the COOPERATING (BUYER) AGENT. This is done via the MLS. Compensation is not a part of the purchase agreement, and cannot be negotiated as such.
2. Since your agent agreed to a fee rebate, this must be DISCLOSED to the seller, in writing, since in fact they are paying the fee, and therefor the rebate is coming from them, for all intents and purposes.
3. If you still want something in writing from your agent, you could ask them to give you a CAR FORM CBC, which will reflect the reduced compensation. Remember, however, it is signed by the Listing Agent, who made the offer of compensation, and the Buyer Agent, who receives the offer of compensation. You are not a party to the Listing Agreement, nor to the MLS sub-offer, and as such cannot sign to any fee reduction or modification.
4. Using Form CBC should give you some measure of comfort, since it creates a paper trail and shows intent. This document is used outside of escrow, and as such is not given to the lender.
