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.

Today, 24 July 2002 @ 6:30 am pdt at 65 mph, the right front wheel separated from the hub on our 1998 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer. All five wheel studs sheared. The car was brought to a stop while riding on the brake disc. The car was towed to woolever tire co, 205 anacapa St, santa barbara, ca 93101. The brake rotor and all tire studs are being replaced. I have high resolution digital pictures of the individual studs as welle as the wheel and brake assemblies. Chevrolet has been contacted and has started a case (1-18936109) regarding this failure. I've asked the tire dealer to save all the parts that were replaced.

They took vehicle to dealership, and mechanic took wheels off and noticed that rivit groves wore into the stator. When they had to replace brakes pads and shoes, they had to remachine the stator to remove the groves. The destruction of the front disk brake pads groved the front wheel stator causing the front wheel to pull to the right.
