Well it looks like my new baby's VIN# falls under this recall/service bulletin? . Not particularly what I wanted to see because we all know how problematic sunroofs can be.
Unfortunately, I guess it wasn't already corrected because the chevy recall center webpage states that "recalls and/or programs for your vehicle in which repairs have not been completed are listed below" and then below that the program status reads: Incomplete. I guess my next step is to call the dealership's service department? Should I be concerned that my sunroof will never be the same and have leaking problems if the service of replacing the glass has to be performed?
The glass replacement is very simple.
Open the sunroof and you will see 4 torx head screws holding the glass frame to the actual sunroof rails.
Removal of the glass only requires removing the 4 screws.....the actual mechanism is not disturbed nor is the headliner disturbed.
The adjustments to the glass are only up/down so it follows the roofline when closed.....a simple adjustment.
All sunroofs leak water and that's why there is a tray or gutter under the seal you see.....the seals seep, water drips onto the tray, the water is directed to the sunroof drain tubes and out of the car.
Note: Never leave the sunroof open for ventilation when parked. Debris gets blown into the above mentioned gutters and will end up plugging the drain tubes......this gets water dripping out of the headliner......Bad Ju Ju.
Don't frett.....this is a simple repair if the glass is needed and the measurement of your current glass does not require removal.
Took my late 2014 model in for an oil change today and they're also replacing the sunroof glass on mine. They did the gap test and it failed. So it affects more than the 2015 model.
Maybe I should ask for an accessory for the Cruze to be on the house? I'm thinking the trunk cargo net, the Premium All-weather Cargo Mat, or the clear Rear Bumper Fascia Protector (which they likely do for free anyway because I found a defect/cut in the paint in this area).
