Are the BA speakers under warranty?

I think the passenger side door speaker is pretty much blown in my camaro. It makes a horrible rattling sound most of the time. This just happened yesterday.

Can I get a speaker replaced under warranty at no cost?

Problem is, my camaro is literally 85 miles from hitting 100k which is when the manufacture warranty ends. It's friday night, so the auto shop at the dealer won't be open til monday.

I would like to know if the warranty will cover it, because I don't want to hit the 100k mark over the weekend and not be covered if I could get it replaced for free. But I don't want to hold out on driving it if it's not covered.

Anyone know about this?
Thanks

The 100k warranty is powertrain only. Your speakers were covered up to the first maintenance inspection period which is bogus:

"Audio systems, cleaning brake pads/linings, clutch linings, coolants and fluids, filters, keyless entry (or other remote transmitter/receiver batteries),* limited-slip rear axle service, tire rotation, wheel alignment/balance,** and wiper inserts are covered up to the first maintenance inspection period outlined in the Owner's Manual. Any replacement at the time of or beyond the maintenance inspection period is considered maintenance, and is not covered as part of the New-Vehicle Limited Warranty. The New-Vehicle Limited Warranty only covers components when replacement or repair of these components is the result of a defect in material or workmanship."

Just replace the system and enjoy the music. I threw mine away or you could have them. The cost of shipping really would be more than the value of the speakers. You can get better speakers for $20 versus the stock speakers.

No it won't be covered.

The speakers fall under the bumper to bumper warranty which ends after 36k. With almost 100k, your warranty ended a long time ago.

You can get a speaker online for $12, yep they are that cheap. GM service will probably charge an hour of shop time so you would be close to $100. It's not hard to do yourself. Unless you like paying a lot you need to do some DIY here and there on any car.

I had mine replaced under a service bulletin, the down side, they replace the amp with one that is a little less powerful. I guess so you don't blow the crap speakers again .
