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.

Have to take the door off again. As found on VWvortex.com there is a repair for the circuit board in the door. There are pictures of the factory solder failing on the circuit board. You can remelt and/ or add additional solder to the broken contacts on the circuit board to fix the door locks or forever reach across to unlock someone passenger door.
