09230B - Roof Panel Separation

Service Campaign Bulletin

Reference Number(s): 09230B, Date of Issue: May 18, 2010

Affected Model(s): 2005-2007 Chevrolet Corvette with Removable Body Color Roof (CF7/C2L); 2006-2007 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

CONDITION

General Motors has decided that a defect, which relates to motor-vehicle safety, exists in certain 2005-2007 model-year Chevrolet Corvette vehicles equipped with a removable body-color roof (CF7/C2L), and 2006-2007 model-year Chevrolet Corvette Z06 vehicles. Some of these vehicles have a condition in which the adhesive between the roof panel and the frame may separate. If there is a partial separation, the occupant may notice one or more symptoms, such as a snapping noise when driving over bumps, wind noise, poor roof-panel fit, roof-panel movement/bounce when a door or hatch is closed, or a water leak in the headliner. If there is a complete separation, the roof panel may detach from the vehicle. If this were to occur while the vehicle was being driven, it could strike a following vehicle and cause injury and/or property damage.

CORRECTION

Dealers are to install a new-design roof panel.
