Some 2020 Corvettes may have a small paint chip in the front fascia below the headlamp on one or both sides of the vehicle. (Fig. 10) The paint chip may be caused by a mis-positioned fender-to-fascia gap joint.
The fender and fascia joint fit should be realigned. (Fig. 11, #1) The realignment will reposition the fender and fascia downward and inboard so that the fascia is flush with the fender. After realignment, the paint chip will no longer be visible. (Fig. 11, #2)
Follow the realignment procedure in Bulletin #20-NA-124. The front tire and wheel assembly, front wheelhouse liner and front wheel opening molding must be removed on the affected side of the vehicle.
After adjusting the fender inboard, the headlamp lens (Fig. 12, #1) will be proud of the fender (Fig. 12, #2) and the fascia tip will install below the headlamp lens. (Fig. 13)
Refer to Bulletin #20-NA-124 for complete instructions and additional information.
