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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The seat belts twist and jam in the belt guides. I have been able to unjam them every time with some fiddling. However it is time consuming and sometimes it happens with the belt on and this makes it very difficult to drive with the belt locked in one position. The steering column lock failed to disengage and the steering wheel won't turn. I am in a Corvette club and this is a common problem with 1997, 1998, and early 1999's. ref. In EA02-031
