It will happen again, mine has been replaced twice and is broken again, just stuffed some foam rubber up in there to keep it from rattling. I have the part I just haven't put it on yet.

Took the car in yesterday and they replaced the header trim panel under warranty. We will see how long it lasts. If it breaks after the warranty expires, I'll replace it myself. It's not a hard job at all.

I bought mine used, any idea how long the warranty lasts on the top? Would like to know if mine could be replaced under warranty before I tear into it. Also curious where those of you that used the 3m tape put the tape in place and where you put it.

Covered under the 3 year 36k bumper to bumper warranty from the origional in service date and mileage. Unless the previous owner got a top warranty extention from GM for issues they encountered previously. The dealer can check that information.

Took my Green Flash in today for this issue along with printed items from this thread, the Service Manager took it out and heard the noise plus saw the broken bosses, the new part is on order.

Maybe I should buy a spare or two?

Thanks everybody for the input.

Part arrived, went in for an hour, dealer installed it, done deal. I really would like to give a shout out for Lafferty Chevrolet in Warminster, PA, they are the best and friendliest car dealer that I have ever done business with. I request their Camaro expert and he does the job!! Very professional and he loves Camaros, has one himself. Very cool. The Flash is happy and rattle free again!!

Just curious what they charged you for the fix. I have been thinking about doing this myself. I know I can get the part for $33 but curious what they charged you for labor.

Nothing. Done under warranty.

Great Post everyone - my 2014 just started rattling - driving me crazy - passenger side, rattle stops when I put my hand on it. My warranty expired 4/12/17 but I plan to take it in and press them to fix it under warranty - only 27K miles - car is parked 6 months of the year. Good to have this link for future reference as I am sure I will be fixing this myself in a few years..........

Take it in outside of the warranty. I think my receipt for the replacement part and labor was like $110. It's a cheap fix.

Mine broke for the third time, last time out of warranty, they wouldn't cover it.
Good luck though.
