Default TSB content?

Here'* the deal... My sisters 1999 Alero has the infamous 3.4L intake leak. There is a TSB out there that is on this specific issue but all I can see is this:

Is there any way to see what is inside this TSB? I may be trying to get a dealer to help out with this or at least do the work myself and the more info I have the better.

This bulletin is being revised to change the Procedure and Parts Information. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 03-06-01-010 (Section 06 - Engine).
Condition
Some owners may comment on an apparent oil or coolant leak. Additionally, the comments may range from spots on the driveway to having to add fluids.
Cause
Intake manifold may be leaking allowing coolant, oil or both to leak from the engine.
Correction
Install a new design intake manifold gasket. The material used in the gasket has been changed in order to improve the sealing qualities of the gasket. When replacing the gasket, the intake manifold bolts must also be replaced and torqued to a revised specification. The new bolts will come with a pre-applied threadlocker on them.
Notice
An oil leak may result if the vertical bolts are not tightened before the diagonal bolts.
Diagonal bolts may require a crows foot to tighten.
Tighten
1. Tighten the vertical lower intake manifold bolts (1) to 7Nm (62 lb in).
2. Tighten the diagonal lower intake manifold bolts (2) to 7Nm(62 lb in).
3. Tighten the vertical lower intake manifold bolts (1) to 13Nm(115 lb in).
4. Tighten the diagonal lower intake manifold bolts (2) to 25Nm(18 lb ft).

GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.
