2011 camaro 5th bow

i have a 2011 camaro with a bent 5th bow ...i bought the car from a gm dealership with 65,000 kms and bought the gmpp extended warranty

had the car 3 months and just now noticed the 5th bow was bent .....like 3 finger gap bent ! didnt know it was an issue until i saw it here on camaro 5

so after getting no where with the dealer i bought it with ..i contacted gm and of course the gmpp doesnt cover it ...so basically it looks like im screwed !

any idea what the new 5th bow parts are worth to replace myself ? !

seems like a waste of $ 2000 + for the extended warranty that covers EVERYTHING says the dealership ...

im a more then a lil pissed off at the moment

ps anyone in the fraser valley of bc STAY AWAY FROM EAGLE RIDGE GM !!!!!!!!

I "think" Canada might have different regs. but everything except the cloth top should be covered under the GMPP.

Here's a host of "5th Bow" threads from this forum. Perhaps you'll find your answer there if no one knowledgeable from / about Canada chimes in. http://www.camaro5.com/forums/search...rchid=23104444

Check out this thread and maybe hit up the OP for some info as he's also in Canada. http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...5th+Bow+Canada

Agree with what is in bold above. I too have the extended warranty and heard the mechanical parts of the top are covered; the cloth is not.

unless things have changed...gmpp covers frame and mechanism, but not the canvas top, water bag, or any leaks...
this was the info I was told by gmpp when I called about a year or so ago.

Replaced my 5th bow myself and the dealership gave it to me free under warranty.

I was told by my dealer that GMPP would cover the bow.....but then it wouldn't because it is a hinged mechanism....they would not put it in writing so I did not buy extended for my car. Bow is around 400 bucks I think.
