If I had a 2012 and mine had that problem Id probably just live with it because for one replacing the leather section on the dash is only temporary the same thing will happen to the replacement part, there is not as of yet a revised part or more "permanent" fix for this issue.

Dealership doesn't get it

I've gotten over it and used to it but geez... You figured they would have checked the part BEFORE they pulled my entire dash out.

I also have that slight rattle behind me. I'll try putting something in there to stop it.
Yeah they ordered a part and called me. I asked if it was the whole dash and they "didn't know for sure". But opened the box and think it is the entire thing. They keep calling me to schedule a time to put it in but I am very reluctant to have my girl get pulled apart without knowing this will be the fix.

I didn't notice the bubble until my stereo guy pointed it out so I'm of the opinion that unless they can guarantee this will not only solve the issue but also not be a new problem, I will deny them "fixing" it this way.

I haven't tried to fix my rattle yet...did you? Any luck? Any pointers? I tried testing it by putting a piece of paper under the trim piece to see if that stopped the noise and it seemed to...but then also letting down the back window a hair helps too. Let me know what results you have...curious.

Oh and if any one has the correct part number for JUST the insert can you post that? Maybe that would help if we walk into our dealer with that part number in hand...I'll chat with my Camaro Club colleagues too. Thanks!

I was thinking about ordering the suede insert for mine and installing it myself. I need to find that part number again and get Maureen to order me one.

I just PM'd Maureen to get a price. I know she will have the best price, plus free shipping.

DON'T let them replace the entire dash for that Leather piece that piece unclips by itself without replacement of the Dash the only part you need to change is the Leather Insert piece on the dash, letting them pull the dash will cause you more aggravation then the Bubble is worth you will have rattles out the rear!!

Yup. They'll pull the entire dash and then realize their mistake and put it back. Then send you home for another week to order the right part. That's what they did to me. And now my dash doesn't line up properly anymore and rattles sometimes... But hey. Working as intended right? .....

Angrybird 12,

Are these the numbers for the suede part you were thinking of getting or for the Chevy part?
"I think these may be the part numbers I found in another thread.
22880755 - right side

I see the dealer on Monday and I was planning on showing them these numbers and asking them to verify these are inserts and that I don't need the dash part they apparently ordered for me.

Just want to be sure about these numbers.
Thanks
Kristy

Yep but my wife said she doesn't like the suede... So I won't be getting it.
Maureen at Rodgers Chevrolet gave me a quote for the parts and that was
$175 for the right side and $61 for the left, they do not charge shipping either.

They have a new part that is supposed to be a permanent fix for this issue. That part is on backorder though.

I skimmed over the entries on the first couple pages of the TSB section of the forum and found nothing. Do you have a TSB number or perhaps a link to the thread?

Like others, I'd be curious as to the part number old vs new as well.

----------------------

Come on guys don't leave out the juicy details from your posts. It's like you're begging us to extract the intel from you. I can understand seeing something and not remembering exactly where or what it was so you just post what you know, and I'm not against searching either, I did, but still. Grrrrr.

And just a general rant here and that is, how in the **** can they come up with a fix and then make sure nobody can get it? Seriously, who does that? You don't mention, by any means, that you have the fix ready unless you have plenty of the new parts to go around. I flippin' hate how companies try to protect their bottom line like this. If they make 1000 and only 500 call in to get it, they wasted money so instead they make 10 and 500 people still call in. What are the 490 other people going to do, go somewhere else? Grinds my gears I tell ya. Same reason they won't publicly admit fault and do a recall, would cost too much and hurt their image at the same time. Whatever happened to doing the right thing, whatever the cost? /rant

I figured as much. No harm done. Just had to vent a little, you understand.

Ok I was looking back in the files of GM Techlink and they have a paragragh in the Feburary files that states that: "A new dash pad that resolves this condition is now available through GM Customer Care and Aftersales". There was no link to the aforementioned statement. You can see the paragraph at GM Techlink (Feb.archives) on the right side. The paragraph is about halfway down. Hope this helps.

Update: Dash Pad Appearance
February 25, 2013
The dash pad area surrounding the radio center stack on some 2012-2013 Camaros may appear to be deformed or wrinkled. (Fig. 6) This area may be slightly to the left or right of the center stack, or directly above it. The trim piece does not appear like this when the car was new.

My bubbles disappeared during the winter so now I am waiting for them to come back before taking it in...

Thanks gents. Sounds like it's about time to visit the dealer then.
