Subject: Positioning Directional Signal Flasher Plastic Socket
Model and Year: 1955 Passenger Cars (applies to 1954 - 1955 Chevrolet Corvettes)
Source: Chevrolet Central Office, Technical Service Bulletin
Bulletin Number: DR-180, Section XII
Date: November 3, 1954
TO: ALL CHEVROLET DEALERS
The shoulder on the plastic Directional Signal Flasher Socket should be up against its Mounting Clip to prevent contact between Flasher Terminal and Clip.
To prevent mis-positioning and shorting during future flasher replacement, a 3/32" x 1-1/2" cotter pin should be installed through the hole in the plastic socket and around the legs of clip, holding the plastic shoulder tight against the clip.
Flasher is located above parking brake handle back of instrument panel.
All early 1955 Cars should be checked and corrected. This is now being handled in production.
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.
