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.

Was able to very easily replace the "heater resistor pack" located behind the glove box. Remove glove box by simply squeezing the sides until the tabs allow the entire glove box to be lowered. The module is installed against the firewall - unplug the wires, remove 2 screws, replace unit.

Rant: 2nd time this has occurred on this vehicle. First time the dealership fixed it (not under warranty) for $75, $25 for the part and $50 labor. I bought this one at a big box auto supply place for $17 and it took all of 5 minutes to install myself.
