Top tsb for 2013

Dealer is installing my corsa and just called to let me know of a tsb that came out on the 16th that affects the 2013 tops. Sorry if this has been posted already. It has to do with smoothing down some hardware that may cause top wear or something to that effect.

I guess I'm waiting for the next model year to come out. Wait... I have been saying that for the past 3 years.

Well, it doesn't sound to be significant or effect the top structurally as the problems of the past have. Probably just a wear point caused by the cable guides? I dont know, I'll find out more later.

I got the same call from my dealer last Friday. They said that it was a burr on something that just needed to be sanded down so it doesn't cause problems in the future. They gave me the TSB number but it is at home right now and I'm at work. It was for 2013 verts.

Since GM is releasing a TSB for the 3rd year in a row for the verts, if you have a 2013 you may want to stop by over here.

Well, it doesn't sound like that big of deal to me. At least not compared to the previous problems with the tops.

My corsa sounds good though!

Got the call for this recall on Friday the 19th. In on Saturday the 20th for a quick visit to comply with 13113. No other top problems for the car yet.

I was at the dealer today having one of my other cars serviced and asked them about this TSB. The service rep was kind enough to print me a copy. I scanned it with my phone and attached it here. Enjoy...

I thought the same thing.

I checked the rear eye loop on the driver's side yesterday and couldn't feel any burr or roughness.

If I'm reading it right, it looks like the TSB is VIN specific. For those that received a call from their dealer, I'm curious as to when their cars were built. Mine was a late August '12 build.

Thanks, going to check my retrofit top kit that was put on my 2011. It has all of these chords. I'm wondering if this recall should be applied to the retrofitted repairs too.
