This Knowledgebase has been developed to cover the most frequently asked questions about Corvettes. Using our system, you can search for topics separated into categories by Corvette generation. Some of the information here comes directly from Chevrolet Service News publications, Service Bulletins, Recall Notices and other technical sources as indicated.
This Knowledgebase contains most service bulletins and recall notices for all model years. If you can't find a particular service bulletin here, try our Corvette Recall Notice & Service Bulletin Search Form which is linked to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration. You will only be able to view a brief description of the bulletins from the NHTSA but must pay a fee to acquire the entire document.

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.
