The front left turn signal bulb quit yesterday, but today it's
working. It's probably designed to fail temporarily to give you a day
or two to plan the service or buy a new bulb, hahaha.
It's 11 months old, so I called a local Chev dealer and was told "Yes,
it is covered by warranty, but call a day in advance because it's a
I usually do small service things myself because it's less trouble
than taking a vehicle to the dealer for a day.
The nice lady on the phone told me that on some models they have to
remove the bumper to change the bulb.
Can this be true? If so it has to be a new low point on GM automobile
She also suggested, if I do it myself, that I buy a high quality GM
original parts bulb, not a cheap Canadian Tire one, because it is so
much work to change, I'd want one that lasts as long as possible. Like
the one that just failed after 11 months, I presume.
WTF's going on here - is this why GM is in the toilet, or is this just
more dealer service bullshit?
