    2012 Chevy Cruze trunk release button replacement

    Hello all,
    I have a new 2012 Chevy Cruze car, it is the plain not LT or LTZ. It has 13,000 miles on it. Our trunk release button on the trunk I may have to get replaced soon. It has been acting up in the last week or so. Can some posts some web links so I can shop around to find out where to get a new trunk release button replacement please?

    I hope ya'll can post some web links.

    Thank you all.

    Your dealer. The 2012s are still under the 36 month time period and your mileage is below the 36K miles. You're still covered under the full bumper to bumper warranty.

    After you get it replaced, take a look at sciphi's thread http://www.cruzetalk.com/forum/57-ho...nk-switch.html to keep it from failing again.

    BOYDN4TUX,
    I would also recommend that you contact your dealer and have them look into this for you. They are in the best position to get this issue addressed for you. I would also like you to keep me posted on this. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me anytime.
    Thank you,
    Stacy Chevrolet Customer Service

    Dealer time. Let them get a new switch. GM might just replace the design if enough folks need theirs replaced under warranty.

    If you're at all handy, following my how-to on fixing the trunk switch so it does not go out again will make you a happy camper.

    A 25 cent piece of rubber over the whole switch area would prevent this problem entirely. That switch just isn't weatherproof, as much as the bean counters insist it is. Mine went out twice in 36k miles. The first time I had the dealer replace it. The second time I fixed it permanently (it still works, so it's permanent as far as I've found so far) myself.

    Hey thank you all for your replies....

    I had hoped maybe some here may have ordered new replacement trunk release buttons from other than a dealer.

    Any ideas how much a replacement is from the dealer by chance?

    Based on your first post your car is still under the full bumper to bumper warranty. There should be no cost to you to replace the trunk switch.

    Are you very far from a Chevy dealer and looking for a DIY fix before making a dedicated trip to a dealer? I see you found my DIY. Let me know if it works out for you!
