WOW that' way involved. All I know is they just called me and said that my parts are in for the repair and my repair order gives that TSB number. I'll find out more when I get it done next week hopefully and report back then.

I was also told that the bottom of the driver side door seal looked like it was picking up dirt on it. I'm not sure but I'll find out what I can.
