I've seen pictures of both the Denso and CTS brake pedals apart. The fix is nothing more than a steel shim placed behind the throttle return springs. The fix is supposed to solve the sticky pedal and slow return problems. It may help a little in that it increases spring preload and may reduce the friction in the part that is intended to make the pedal move smoothly (especially if they give it a bit of grease while they are in there). I don't believe it solves the unintended acceleration problem at all. I believe the real issue is electronic/programming. My opinion is they are struggling to deal with an issue they either don't understand yet or are unwilling to pay for. I believe they will report good earnings tomorrow before the market opens and will make a statement. Whether they come clean or continue to minimize the issue is a big question. I expect TM to go up tomorrow then down for a few months then regain their footing for the year. Obviously that is just my opinion.
