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.

At 40-45 mph hear wheel bearing noise. Dealer confirmed and both right front bearings (main and carrier) replaced by Ford dealer. Still had noise after replacement. Dealer confirmed that the carrier bearing just replaced was bad. Replaced carrier bearing again but still having same noise. Dealer stated there have been many wheel bearing problems, and that faulty bearings are coming to Ford from vendor. Problem as yet not resolved. Seems Ford is unable to identify which bearings are bad without installing them. I am concerned with potential wheel lock up at speeds, especially a front wheel.
