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.

Vehicle type - 2003 Ford F-150 (harley-davidson edition) issue also affects other year models of the same truck. 1) no known events - part seems to have broken easily under normal use and normal driving conditions. 2) the part that has failed is a fog lamp bracket. When the bracket fails (it is made of brittle plastic), the fog lamp assembly will fall to the ground in front of either the left or right front tires. This can cause a loss of vehicle control when the truck tire impacts the fog lamp assembly. 3) Ford will not replace the part - they disagree that it is a safety hazard. There are several reports of these parts failing online in different user forums.
