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 right rear (QUAD CAB) door on my 98 ram will not open! I noticed some rust in the latch areas a few months ago and lubed them up with some lithium based lube, but now the door will not open at all!!! The only access I can see to the latch is through the door panel however you need to have the door open to get the door panel off!! Any ideas how I can fix this??
