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.

Cowling covers the seat adjustment controls. "normal" issue of someone using plastic where it's inappropriate. Once broken, if you're willing to MacGyver a little, very fixable. need 3 inch #12 self-drilling screws (original are self-drilling #10, much shorter). The length is needed to broach the gap from cowling outside to the holes in the metal. You will also need washers with diameter large enough to fit over the original recessed holes. Mine have an OD of 1-3/8". So cost is 2 sets of washers and screw and actually not too unsightly. I can send photo if you twist my arm. I wish I had fixed it a lot sooner, dealer quoted at least $200 to fix.
