To: All Chevrolet Dealers

Attention: General Manager, Service Manager, Parts Manager, Used Car Vehicle Manager, and Warranty Administrator

The service procedure in bulletin 06041D has been revised. Dealers are to no longer repair the vehicle using adhesive foam. The new procedure requires a roof replacement. All technicians are to review the revised service procedure immediately. Please discard all copies of bulletin 06041C, issued May 2007.

VEHICLES INVOLVED

Involved are certain 2005-2007 Chevrolet Corvette vehicles equipped with a body-color roof and built within these VIN breakpoints:

YEAR DIVISION MODEL FROM THROUGH
2005 Chevrolet Corvette 55100005 55137340
2006 Chevrolet Corvette 65100001 65131106

Important: Dealers are to confirm vehicle eligibility prior to beginning repairs by using GMVIS (dealers using WINS) or the Investigate Vehicle History link (dealers using GWM).

Not all vehicles within the above breakpoints may be involved.

General 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.
