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.

It turns out that the front door are so heavy that the hinges wear out and the only fix is to replace the whole door. I let mine go for so long that the latching mechanism broke apart from the door and I could no longer close the door. I'm surprised that no one has come up with a repair kit like a re-sleeve or bushing and pin kit for those hinges.

Update from Nov 30, 2010: I ended up replacing the whole door off a junkyard vehicle.
