Thumbs down What is hiding under your spoiler?

I found this yesterday when I pulled off the factory spoiler to do a little modding. I was shocked to see so much damage!

I believe there is TSB on this. Take it to the dealer.

Correct. This is a well known issue. Unfortunately.

I expect the same when I add a new spoiler. I am at 37000 miles, is it still covered?

Thanks! Will they repair the damage to the trunk lid or just add some padding to the spoiler?

do a search for the TSB and print itand take it with you to the dealer. I had the same issue with mine back in 2010,my dealer repainted the entire deck lid. Dont let them just try to touch it up.

They'll fix it for you. I had a similar issue on my 2010 and 2011 SS. If your wanting an aftermarket spoiler painted/installed for free your chance is now.

Common issue covered under 36/36 warranty. I'd touch up the edge and bolt it back on. If dealer repairs you will get full trunk lid repaint and buff resulting in streaking, blending over your rear fenders and scratches from compound. If they don't remove your stripes results will be worse.

One thing that really grinds my gears about this spoiler paint chip problem is that the bulletin was dated December 2010 and the 2011 I have was not fixed before I bought the Camaro in May of 2011. Then when I brought the car back to dealership to show them the paint damage in June 2011, they brushed me off saying too bad, can't help ya.

I tried looking for this TSB on line and can not find it anywhere. Is someone able to find it and post it here or PM me with it? I will be taking the Camaro in for its oil change next week and that would be a perfect time for them ot fix it.

Thanks
