Subject: Customer Satisfaction Campaign 06092 - Brake Pad Inspection
Models: 2006-2007 Chevrolet Corvette Z06
The owner manual for 2006 and 2007 Chevrolet Corvette vehicles indicates that all vehicles are equipped with disc brake pads that have a built-in wear indicator that makes a high-pitched sound when the brake pads are worn and require replacement. The disc brake pads on Corvette Z06 vehicles do not have this audible warning indicator and should be inspected to determine brake wear. Costly brake repairs may result if the pads are not replaced in time.
An owner manual supplement will be sent to owners of record that describes the proper way to inspect for brake wear. Dealers are to place a copy of the supplement in the owner manual of vehicles in their inventory.
All registered owners will receive this mailing, instructing about brake pad inspection.
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.
