    GM Special Coverage Adjustment Supercharger Warranty Extension

    Just going to say GM typically works on JIT and FIFO as the norm. Might not be chronological order, but within a few days stock.

    No way would they have 3 month old product on a plant shelf.

    I can't speak for the general assembly area of the facility (LGR for us, IIRC) but I have ABSOLUTELY seen body shops build out cars with 2-3 month old metal.

    I won't go so far as to say they've made it out the door that way, and it wasn't specifically LGR I worked with, but we're not perfect about FIFO.

    It can be very obvious when it's split in areas that have long since been addressed or they're trying to hem aluminum that was stamped more than 60 days ago (has to be hemmed within 60 days or the aluminum ages too much and cracks along the hemmed edge).

    Edit: I shouldn't have said "build out", that implies they became finished vehicles. But the panels were absolutely run thru their respective body shop cells and physically hung on a vehicle before being eventually noticed.

    I think the financial penalties/consequences of inventory deter most large mfgs from keeping anything around long. As LA noted JIT parts are the order of the day nowadays.

    I'm aware of how JIT fits in- I was working at a semi-contiguous stamping plant where every morning at 9:30 we met to discuss how assembly performed the day before compared to projections, and vice versa for how many good parts we were able to get to them.

    Doesn't change how obvious it is when they're trying to run aluminum that's past its hem-by date, and it would have hit their inventory within 7 of the 60 days they have to use it.

    Again, I'm not going to say that proves anything about S/C isolators, but fact of the matter is it is still human beings scheduling material/parts to their facility, unloading/storing them, and eventually getting them to the line. I know bodyshop can screw it up to the tune of 2mo old materials, so it wouldn't surprise me in GA is all.

    Edit: I've been thinking and I could make this clearer.

    When assembly orders from us, they order in 'packs' that are loosely figured around daily assy counts (+ safety margins for truck/rack/road damage, etc). For us, a pack was ~300 parts, and most days were 1-2 packs. They also required a minimum of two packs more than projections called for, in reserve.

    Being contiguous, we had access to their parts inventory database. I can't even tell you how often we would have to REFUSE to make 300-1000 pieces of a panel because their inventory clearly showed they had enough for several days, because we needed that press time to make panels they really didn't have enough of. It was clear their ordering personnel were just pencil whipping the counts, for whatever reason (plenty of valid reasons for it, when you ignore the binds it put us in).

    Combine that with lazy FIFO and ordering from an outside supplier that has much less incentive to say "no, I won't sell you another 500 units" (which is all they supply to that facility, unlike us), and it's much easier to see how 2mo old units could be used.

    Especially when there's nothing different about the S/C to plant personnel, whereas body surface defects are meticulously examined for. Even if they knew there was a difference, I'd bet folding money someone was like "They can just take their car to the dealer for isolated update, rest of the unit is OK".

    Sorry if this has been asked before but is it really VIN specific for the recall?? I called 2 dealerships and GM and they said my VIN was not affected but I can hear the rattle at idle and even had a buddy that has had 2 CTS-Vs tell me that my internal bearings are bad and need to be replaced. I just got the car and it has 79k miles. Want to know if I should keep fighting for it or Reid they are right about being VIN specific.

    Should only cover 2009-2013, I don't think 2014-15 V2 are included.

    Just put a solid ISO in it.

    Replacement is overrated

    I have a 2011 and was hoping to get a new supercharger to start modding the engine and feel at ease with the new SC in Iit. Is it EVERY 09-13 v model?

    If it's not making noise, don't bother with it.

    2011 absolutely is covered unless it was already replaced once.

    Well, you can try another dealer, or kick and scream, or try an Eaton solid coupler.

    Also, a smaller pulley might actually move the noise to an rpm below your idle speed. Do you hear it if you rev the engine to 800 rpm?

    Are you sure it's the SC making the noise? Pull the SC drive belt and see if it goes away.

    There is a noise and my buddy has had 2 of them and told me about the recall for the noise so I trusted his word on where it came from. But I will try that this weekend.

    Well it's not really a recall so GM will not just replace it. It has to me making a very distinct and loud noise.

    pulling into the garage i heard some noise after i put the car into Park... sounded more like grinding, like a bearing going bad... it went away when i revved the motor... i think it might be supercharger replacement time... i'll try to call the dealer tomorrow to schedule a drop off...

    dropped off the car on Friday... i waited there for 2 hrs while the tech was diagnosing the car... it was hard to hear in the service entrance since it was open... the tech confirmed there was a noise but i was told he wanted to run a few more tests to isolate the noise to the S/C... he also wanted to do a cold start test... they put me in a brand new 2017 XT5 as a loaner... i'm waiting to hear back today on what the verdict is...
