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.

Popping/ metallic sound similar to sound when crunching a soda can, a metallic popping sound from passenger floor board area. Does it under various conditions, and once did it when just getting into vehicle before starting, seems to be load related and some sort of stress relief, body movement seems to cause it. Was confirmed on test drive with a technician. They attempted to tighten front suspension parts (tourqued ??) tried a power steering/rack tsb with some sort of bracket on rack hoses..... no change, exact same noise, even though Ford does not know what it is, they claim it is not safety related..... pop continues.... value of car considerable lessened due to noise... so attempts to sell it are in vain... Ford has nothing but excuses.
