There's a lot of material on that page, but these items must just summarize the issue:
----------------- September 13th 2000 TSB SB615695 Advance Service Information (D-Mail) to dealers titled "Inter Company Correspondence", states "More explicit warnings to dealership technicians". Mentions potential for bolts "shearing off" if not torqued to revised torque specifications. Also states Washers P/N 05017820AA must be installed along with revised bolts. The document "claims" the bolts were revised for more convenient access to the bolt head however states the last part of the document where the revised bolts are mentioned "includes important notes" (we believe the bolts were revised in an attempt to prevent them from shearing off).
