That's because they did it wrong the first time and the second time. The only way to correct this problem is to replace the eye-bar and forget all the BS about trying to repair it. I have written letters telling the brain surgeons this fact, but until something happens, they will keep spending and wasting money.

Also, they have been told to watch the other eye-bars...they are ready also...remember folks, nothing hit the eye-bar in the first place to crack it...it just got over stressed.

Keep this comment in your file and in 6 months look at it and say, well I'll be darn she was right. I hope I'm not on the bridge when the next eye-bar fails...it may just be a lot worse than a crack, especially if it's right across for the first cracked eye-bar.

Later...good luck and safe driving.
