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.

Three bolts hold on the clutch master cylinder bolt head head was sheared/blown off upon depressing the clutch pedal when starting the car. Brake fluid leaked out. Clutch was inoperable and power braking diminished. The clutch master cylinder was replaced and 11 months later the same incident occurred. The bolt head position that was blown/sheared off was the same in both incidents.
