Will someone be able to post the actual TSB on this forum or will that be edited out too?

I am sure when there is a real TSB in the works that would be ok to post... If my seats don't get fixed within the next six months by Ford not me. I will be disconnecting the lumbar area power so it does not come on at all. I would rather the TED not heat up or try to cool anything until Ford does something about it.

I'm sure it's all about liability... that image floating around is tantamount to an admission of a design problem and promise to fix. It could be used against them when someone's seat causes spontaneous combustion of the truck.

Its removal was requested by FoMoCo due to propriety reasons. That's all they said on the phone. They politely requested, I obliged. It's happened before in the past, it'll happen in the future. They're pretty well on top of everything they don't want getting out to the public.

I'm sure once the final revisions of whatever bulletin that was becomes live, they'll do the right thing. Having an internal draft of a memo going out to the public as unproven gospel opens them up to a whole world of liability.

They probably would not like it being posted on facebook then...

And No I don't plan on doing that.

Their Social Media division does from time to time. We have a Ford Presence (FordService and others for example) here on this site so we attract a lot of attention.

I would imagine that would cause a large issue. Please don't, lol!
