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.

bulb in radio display has gone out

The far right of the three bulbs in my stock MONSOON radio/CD/cassette has gone out. Its not a big deal, but it makes the equalizer difficult to see, especially during the day. I found the same radio at a local junkyard and tore into it. There are 3 small white bulbs soldered behind the display. You can get to them if you take out your radio, undo just short of a thousand screws and clips, and solder a new one in. I do not believe you can buy a new bulb, so go get your junkyard toolbox ready. Its really inconvenient to pull apart my dash, so I'm just going to wait until I need to for something more important to arise and fix it while I'm at it.
