comment Why does Jesus tell his mother his “hour has not yet come”?
Carson's commentary is good. And I would absolutely agree with him on this point. But he's a bit too conservative in reading John. He's constantly arguing for less than what the text actually may warrant.

I don't think Jesus was reforming the temple. I think he was condemning it. See my comment on how-should-we-understand-the-cleansing-of-the-temple/4795#4795

I absolutely agree that Jesus was symbolically acting out the coming judgement on the temple. The question here, however, revolved around Jesus' authority and so I limited my answer to that.
