2016 Corvette: Recall: 16038 Transmission Oil Cooler Line in Contact with Body Stud

Condition:  Certain 2016 model year Chevrolet Corvette vehicles, equipped with an 8 speed automatic transmission (RPO M5U) and an extra capacity cooling system (RPO V03), may have a condition in which the transmission oil cooler (TOC) lines come in contact with the body studs for the outer quarter panel reinforcement. Over time this contact may wear a hole through the line causing a fluid leak. It is possible that the leak may not be visible, but could lead to illumination of the malfunction indicator lamp, rough/irregular shifts, slipping, and, eventually, complete loss of propulsion.
