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 may cause a slight metal rattle at idle. To fix it you go under the car and with those metal zip-tie clamp things, that involve a Flathead to tighten, you tighten all the parts that rattle. These causes everything to tighten and stays quiet. Side note, if you use anything that isn't metal it'll burn off obviously because these are heat shields, and they are hot.
