Or sharp edges (2) from the convertible top mechanism, which may be wearing small holes in the rear corners of the headliner when it is stowed.

Motors bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, not
a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform those 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 a General Motors dealer servicing your
brand of General Motors vehicle for information on whether your vehicle
may benefit from the information.
