Is there actually a TSB for the Loose Drivers Seat Rails?

I did a search but although lots of folks allude to one, I cannot find a direct reference to one. If not, is there a way to fix this without replacing the rails?

Searching for "seat rails"

RTL Drivers Seat Loose

Can't find any reference to a TSB, only customer goodwill action by the dealer.

Re: Is there actually a TSB for the Loose Drivers Seat Rails?

I have never seen an actual TSB for the loose seat issue. I have this problem on my truck, and have noticed it on several other Ridgeline's as well. Several other Honda and Acura models suffer from the same problem.

Re: Is there actually a TSB for the Loose Drivers Seat Rails?

Unfortunately I have 60K miles on my truck so I doubt the dealer is gonna care. I took it in at 50K miles because I had a certified used warranty which was extended 5% due to the odometer fraud issue. They said they fixed it then, but they did not do anything but tighten a few bolts somewhere I am pretty sure. Now I am afraid it is too late to get anything done.

Then perhaps you can do the same with a socket and ratchet?

Did what the dealership do fix the problem for a while? If you have this on record as being repaired before the warranty runs out and it's still not fixed, the dealership should still do a "good faith" repair or at least give you a break on fixing it a second time.
