Gee, I wonder how I’ll make out on this. My local dealer sucks so bad, that when mine broke, (TWICE, the threaded inserts pulled out) that I just glued them in to keep the parts from falling off.
I haven't notice the passenger rails being weak, my problem is the crappy bronze fittings in the base keep popping out. I have been tempted to go to the Hardware store to buy taps and upgrade those fitting with something that actually created thread. Obviously this would be a modification and stock applications may not work after that so I haven't pulled the trigger. I'll see what solution HD come up with, if it is a completed handrail replacement but nothing to fix those fittings in the base, the Recall will be worthless.
For anyone that can't find it here's the full summary from the NHTSA website.
