  1. Important 2022 Model Year Order/Content Changes Nov. 19, 2021 Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac Dealers, In our last communication on Friday, Nov. 12, we promised to provide further details, when available, regarding heated and ventilated seats. Our teams have been working hard to find a solution to retrofit vehicles with these convenience features that our customers want to continue to enjoy. We are excited to confirm all vehicles covered by the previous announcement will be eligible for a retrofit process that will activate the operation of the heated and ventilated seat modules. This retrofit process will begin when parts become available and at no cost to the customer. Dealers will be reimbursed via the GM Global Warranty System. We anticipate that these parts will be available for retrofit in late Q2 2022. Each impacted vehicle will receive an invoice and Monroney label credit of $50 per vehicle for any combination of heated and ventilated seats. Now that there is a definitive retrofit plan, the previously communicated invoice and window label credits on Nov. 12, no longer apply. Please reference the table below for details on impacted models and trims. Dealers will be required to: Obtain a signed customer acknowledgement form at the time of purchase Inform customers that their vehicle is not currently equipped with heated/ventilated seats Advise customers that GM will cover the cost of the retrofit for heated/ventilated seats when the parts become available The customer acknowledgement forms must be retained in the sales deal jacket and be made available to GM representatives upon request. Once parts are available to begin the retrofit process, dealers and customers will be notified accordingly. We plan to create an instructional video for the retrofit process and will invite input from Dealer Council members in Q1 2022. Once we have their input, we will create a specific service bulletin providing full detailed instructions on how to complete the required service for each impacted vehicle and how to apply for reimbursement through the GM Global Warranty System. Most vehicles will retain non-functioning switches to allow for a simplified retrofit, however, there will be a small population of vehicles where the switches will be removed altogether. Please be advised that this retrofit process is only for heated/ventilated seats and does not impact heated steering wheel at this time. Also, please understand that this credit will be a total of $50 per vehicle. These efforts are being undertaken as a direct result of your feedback and the acknowledgement of the importance of these features to our customers.

  17. Document ID: 5222817 #19-NA-020: Information on Improved Replacement Spin-On Oil Filter UPF63R for High Feature V6 Engines - (Sep 11, 2020) Subject: Information on Improved Replacement Spin-On Oil Filter UPF63R for High Feature V6 Engines Brand: Model: Model Year: VIN: Engine: Transmission: from to from to Buick LaCrosse 2017 2021 — — 3.6L (LGX) 3.0L (LGW) — Regal 2018 Cadillac ATS 2016 2019 CT6 2016 2020 CTS 2016 2019 XT5 2017 2021 XT6 2020 Chevrolet Blazer 2019 Camaro 2016 GMC Acadia 2017 Information Today's engines have very tight tolerances, multiple oil pressure control systems and high flow lubrication system requirements. These requirements will vary based on the specific engine design, so the proper match of oil filter to the engine application is more important than it has ever been in the past. The High Feature V-6 engines RPO (LGX) and (LGW) have higher oil pump pressure to accommodate engine cam phasing and high-speed bearing requirements. As a result, the oil filter performance was improved to meet this higher oil pressure output. The new UPF63R oil filter has a thicker outer shell to provide higher burst pressure resistance during cold temperature conditions and greater fatigue strength. Failing to use this filter could result in external oil leaks due to gasket blowout or wrench flute cracks. Any time an oil filter is changed on one of the above vehicles, it is recommended to use the new and improved filter. Parts Information Refer to the Electronic Parts Catalog (EPC) to determine the proper part numbers for your specific application.   Version 2 Modified Released February 04, 2019 September 11, 2020 – Added the XT6 Model, added the 2021 Model Year to certain vehicles and updated the Involved Region or Country section.

  18. Document ID: 5663685 #20-NA-213: Information on Improved Oil Filter Gasket Design for Spin-On Oil Filters PF63 PF64 and PF48 - (Oct 30, 2020) Subject: Information on Improved Oil Filter Gasket Design for Spin-On Oil Filters PF63 PF64 and PF48 Brand: Model: Model Year: VIN: Engine: Transmission: from to from to Buick GM Passenger Cars and Trucks 2011 2020 — — Engines that use a PF63, PF64 and PF48 oil filter — Cadillac Chevrolet GMC Information Starting October 1, 2020 replacement spin-on oil filters PF63, PF48 and PF64 will come with a new improved gasket design to help retain it to the oil filter body and eliminate the possibility of the gasket from falling off during installation. The gasket width was increased to help retain the gasket to the filter body. Existing dealer inventory or filters received from CCA are ok to use for service. When replacing an oil filter, always ensure that the gasket is seated properly in the filter body. These filters meet all GM OE specifications and are approved for service usage. Today's engines have very tight tolerances, multiple oil pressure control systems and high flow lubrication system requirements. These requirements will vary based on the specific engine design, so the proper match of oil filter to the engine application is very important.

  19. Yes, GM actually requires the use of the UPF63R in the 3.6 Blazer (as well as some other 3.6 applications such as the Camaro) due to the higher oil pressure. You would be fine to use it in your Silverado, its actually listed in the parts catalog as an optional service replacement.
  20. Not confusing at all, just use the 12707246 and you'll be fine.
  21. You have to understand, that owners manual is more than 3 months old, it may have been printed a year ago, its not as updated as our database is from GM, part numbers change all the time, lord knows I've seen numbers change many many times in my 30+ years in the GM parts business (about the only part number that hasn't changed is GM's optikleen windshield washer solvent! 1051515)......other than that every number has changed over the years, and they can't reprint and send out new owners manuals everytime the part numbers change, but I understand your frustration, anyway the newest number is the PF63 / 12707246 for your truck, or as I said I use on mine you could use the UPF63R Ultraguard Gold filter.
