Just got a call back and they ordered a spring and bearing for the driver side but they are on BO. That's the only place that I heard the noise coming from so hopefully the passenger side is fine...for now.

Did they do the latest tsb 12-6-17?

I actually got to talk to the Tech who is going to be working on my car. He said he's done a handful of the cars with similar issues and out of all of them he has fixed, no one has come back complaining the noise is back. He went into depth with me on "what the newest fix" is in regards to the parts (pertaining to the tsb I would suspect, obviously). It was pretty cool actually and calming to know how much he was willing to help per say and share that info with me since he is going to be working on my car when the parts come in!

Care to share some of this in depth conversation you had. The Coles notes version would be fine.

When I asked what exactly they were replacing I was told it was the parts that 12-6-17 TSB called for. Kinda odd that they are just doing the one side but being as it's only making noise from the drivers side I guess it's fine and hopefully the passenger side stays quiet.

Hey I posted a poll about whether the TSB fixed the clunk. It's a simple little poll, and I'd like to ask people here who have the 12-6-17 TSB to check yes or no if the problems were fixed.
Thanks:)

Is there a web page where I can get the original tsb so I can rub it my dealer's rep face?
