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.

doesnt blow out from vents

THE A/C IN MY SUBURBAN HAD FAILED TO BLOW ANYTHING OUT VENTS. A MECHANIC FRIEND TOLD ME IT IS PROBABLY THE ACTUATORS. WHAT IDIOT PUT THREE ACTUATORS IN PLACES THAT REQUIRE THE ENTIRE DASHBOARD TO BE REMOVED AND THEN SOME AND NOT TO MENTION HAVING TO BE A CONTORTIONIST TO BE ABLE TO GET TO THEM.

NEEDLESS TO SAY I REPLACED THE MODE ACTUATOR WHICH IS LOCATED WELL ABOVE THE GAS PEDAL AND THE ONE BELOW BY THE CENTER CONSOLE. I HAD TO CHECK THE RECIRCULATING ACTUATOR WHICH IS THE MOST UNGODLY PLACE REQUIRING REMOVAL OF THE ENTIRE DASH.
