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.

Everyone seems to have a problem with either the blend door motor / actuator or the blend door itself breaking. You have to remove the entire dash and heater box to change this $72.00 part which takes most all day. The motor part number is 2L3Z-19E616-BA and you may be better off to change out the heater core while you are this far because they are a early failure also. Makes you not much of a Ford fan after doing this repair. The engineers that design these things should have to be a mechanic that fixes them for several years first!
