Heater Core on 2010 2SS

Knew I had a problem when I smelled anti-freeze anytime I didn't have the temp set to the lowest setting. Finally took it into the dealer (2010 Camaro, 2SS) and they told me the heater core needed replacement under warranty.

A little scary because they have to take the front windshield off to get the bolts out, but I don't have a choice.

Seem to remember reading a couple years ago that this was somewhat of a common prob on the 2010's? Is that right?

I asked the dealer if there was a known fault and fix so I wouldn't have to go thru this again off warranty, but the svc rep said this is the first she'd ever seen.

Anyone have a different perspective?

Several people here have had the heater core go south on them. Yes, they have to take out the windshield and the entire dash. One of the threads here has pictures of the process. Fair warning, the images are not going to make you feel good.

Does anyone know if anything has been done to ensure the new heater core is better?
