I got halfway through installation when I found one light assy had a piece of broken plastic loose inside the lense. Returned for a refund, since they are backordered. Have to wait for restock.
Figured it out, there are secondary locks on the sides of the block. Pop the one out closest to the wire your working on and release the pin. Wire connector comes out easy peasy once you know how, no special tools needed! Too bad I had to return the fog light kit because the one light assy had a broken piece of plastic inside, and they were backordered for a replacement. So I returned for credit. No lights but know how to wire them. Wth
So I'm not the only one. I'll get back at it once I have more time. Never had this much trouble with other connectors, must tighter tolerances and the right extraction makes the difference.
Adding the factory foglights to my '19 GMC Sierra. I'm at the point where it comes to removing the wire connector from the body 2 in the UEC. I'm having a hell of time releasing present B3 wire connector socket from the block. I know it has to lock tabs on either side but unable to get it free. Tried using tiny allen wrenches, paperclips with no luck. What's the trick???
Picking up a 2019 GMC Sierra SLE tomorrow, which doesn't come with fog lamps. Are the factory lights worth it or should I consider something else? Figure I'll do the work myself unless the dealer offers me a deal. I know they have the flash the BCM for full function.
I noticed that since new, the dealer has used three different codes for GM Dexos 0w-20 oil. Anyone know what the differences are, 88864004, 8886407 and 8886501? I'm guessing one is a synthetic blend vs full synthetic. First vehicle I haven't changed the oil/rotate tires myself due to dealers fair price, only about $10 over my material cost.
As mentioned before, with 20" rims you don't have as much tire sidewall as 17/18" of the same outside diameter. Therefore, less tire flex causing a stiffer ride with slightly quicker steering response. On my 2015 Z71 package(factory rancho shocks) with 18's the ride is fine. Your Corvette is a prime example of a firm ride. Those low profile tires make it ride like it's on rails, along with a major lower center of gravity compared to the truck. Taller tires would yield a softer ride, not that one would do that to a Corvette.lol Take a test drive with one that has 17" or 18" and see for yourself.
It been a year since having the TSB BCM/bulb upgrade. 364 days and the driver side burns out. Not covered due to mileage over the 12,000mi/12mo. warranty. Paid $40 while at the dealer to replace(thinking it would be covered). Funny, under warranty, the bulb was $15 yet for Joe customer $23.68. Now a month later, the other bulb goes out. A year lifespan is not acceptable. Is there a better longer lasting replacement or is this the price we pay for increased light output by bumping the voltage?
