  1. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    I recently replaced my trunk switch on my 12 Cruze and figured out I have another problem. Both the license lights come on but they are so dim you cannot tell they are even on, was wondering if anyone has experienced this or may know maybe how to fix it?
  2. Gen2 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    Just a quick question if anyone knows how to remove the light cover on a gen 2 sedan license plate light? There are no visible screws I see to undo to remove. So, for the life of me I've tried looking for ways with trim removal tools to get this cover off but no luck.

    Looking for the larger plate holder found outside of the US market on most if not all Cruze models. Anyone have a source for hard to find parts such as these? Argentinian built Cruze Chinese Built Cruze (looks like the lower grille plate holder is molded?) Cool blue too!

    Hello Everyone, I purchased a 2017 Redline and I'm trying to remove the front license plate bracket. It looks like it has metal rivets attaching it to the grill. Has anyone removed one on a 2nd gen? Thanks

    OVERVIEW (TIME REQUIRED: < 1 minute) I recently received part of my prize for winning Cruze of the Month, a pair of DiodeDynamic LED license plate lights. They make the light much whiter and clearer, and are LED so that's bonus bragging horsepower. They are the same lights the first gen uses...

    I posted this in the Facebook page, however felt compelled to post in here. If you notice this ensure that you replace the rusting fasteners as they will destroy the look of your lenses and rusted screw will enlarge and damage the mounting hole and maybe break off. I noticed rust on both of the...

    Just installed the rear license plate on our daughter's new 2017 Cruze Premier. I noticed that the plate is tight against the rear of the trunk lid and I suspect the plate will rub into the paint and eventually rub to the metal and then of course start a rust stain. I got 4 rubber grommets and...

    Does anyone know the number or details on lightbulb I'd need to replace the license plate light that is located on the trunk lid. There are 2. I noticed one of mine is out. I'd rather just find out what it is, get it, then take it apart to replace. Rather than opening it up to do so and then...

    Many states require a license plate on both the front and back of your vehicle. Michigan is not one of them, just the back here. Anyways my Cruze doesn't have a mount on the front. Can a dealer install an OEM mount? I would not be comfortable drilling holes. How much might something like this...

    I put some LEDs in my license plate lights a while back. One of them had started to flicker and I thought they may have been the wrong ones I used. The other one has not started to flicker. I took out the screws (which were very rusted and I actually just replaced them with some stainless steel...

    After a snowy drive home from work and backing into my driveway, my backup camera image was white. I went outside to check out what was going on to discover this! I guess I found the problem. But enough about that. Upon discovering this and clearing away the backup camera, I noticed the left...

    Hello, this is my first post to the forums. My girlfriend purchased a '14 Cruze base model with the 1.8L back in March and has had a pretty good experience with it. It's under warranty until 2019 but, any service at the stealership costs a minimum of $100. So, I'll be doing all the maintenance...

    well, it only took a few weeks for the cheap ebay LEDs for my plate lights to flicker, and recently die altogether. those cheapies work good for the bulbs you dont use much, but not for extended use. so i got some of the 56 lumen ones from diode dynamics. they came super fast in the mail even...
