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 driver's power seat stopped adjusting the front lift. The motor ran, but did not lift the seat. All other positions operate correctly. I removed the seat and determinet the problem to be a stripped (plastic type) gear that drives a screwdrive that raises and lowers the front of the seat. It is a "ring and pinion" type gear arrangement. I went to my local Chrysler dealer to order the two gears and learned I could not. Nor could I order the motor and drive gear assembly. To fix the problem I would have to order the entire seat base with the three motors and all the mechanism. Cost is $525 plus tax! I contacted Chrysler to see if there was any way to get only the parts needed or to atleast only get the motor assembly with the gears attached. Answer was NO. Nor did I get a response to my question as to who manufactured the seat assembly for me to contact them to see if they could sell the needed parts. Now I am in the process of searching salvage yards to find the seat so I can make the repair. I am very disappointed in Chrysler for making the repair of a minor problem such an expense.
