The color of the tag corresponds to the part number of the spring found on the car. NFs are red and NGs are green.

He also said something about the spring or strut being green in color means it needs to be replaced......
Mine said the same thing. TSB out, parts ordered. I had my SEL Hatch serviced last week and so far so good. Nice and quiet... for now.

I wonder... did they beef up the parts or just replace the parts? I'll have to look at my service order again to see if there are any hints/details.

Can you pm me the part number of the bearings? I'm going to order some and want to cross-reference the part number they have me last week.

Nice & Fast... Not Good...? LOL IDK

I believe it's the difference between the standard suspension and the "touring"

My dealer's service manager called me this morning. A new TSB came out on 6/27/12 and they want my car back tomorrow for the work to be done. Replacing strut bearings and springs again. I'll be in a rental car again.

This is great news. I hope the parts they're installing are updated, or you might be right back in again for the same issue.

Please try to get a copy of the TSB if you can.

^^This^^

Along with the TSB, they should be able to provide you with a receipt showing the part numbers of the new parts installed. That info would be nice to have too.

Yes, I hope the parts are updated ones too. I'll try to get the info and put it on here when I get it. I would not think that a whole new TSB would come out with the previous parts again.

Just got off the phone with my dealer... TSB 5-17-12 couldn't be found in their system. He stated there were no suspension related TSB that might apply to my car. Fail...
