Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

This is a real annoying issue with the 02-04 Acura RSX (Leather Seats). If you know how to use a ratchet then this is a somewhat easy fix. Just time consuming. Take the seat out of the car, unbolt things until you can take off the bottom cushion. Then bring the bottom cushion to a local upholster and it should only take them 20-30 minutes.
