  1. It is GM's fix for the water leak on the sliding window, they do not specifically tie the leak and glass issues together. As I mentioned my theory is pure speculation, in my opinion the leak could very well be getting on something electrical creating a short or power surge through the defroster that causes the glass to shatter. I am by no means an expert on the subject and will gladly admit that I was wrong if it proves I am, I just feel like it makes sense that the water leak and my electrical short being in the same exact area and not just a coincidence.
  2. I looked all over for a TSB relating to the rear glass shattering, found nothing. As a GM parts sales guy I could not find anything from GM saying "This is why" or "How to fix", the only thing relating to the sliding rear glass I found was about the water leak in which customers were complaining about a slightly damp floor under the rear seat.
  3. GM has nothing to address the broken glass, my assumption is pure speculation but I do not feel it is unreasonable. Water leak in the same exact area that I saw the smoke, a electrical short that caused my truck to blow a fuse every time the defrost was turned on, to me it just makes sense.
  4. Complaint filed. Curious on how you think GM should remedy this concern? It seems obvious to me that this is ultimately caused by the water leak outlined in the service bulletin, would others agree that they should make that bulletin a special policy to extend warranty coverage for those who experience the same problem or just make their water leak fix a recall?
  5. Now if I could only get GM to compensate me for all the stickers I am going to loose! lol My lease is up in September anyways!
  6. Luckily I am just under my 36k warranty, it was some kind of short and where it is requires the rear glass to be replaced. This is the bulletin about the water leak, I never noticed a water leak but it is the same area I had the smoke. https://gm.oemdtc.com/8793/water-leak-under-back-glass-from-power-sliding-window-2014-2016-chevrolet-silverado-gmc-sierra
  7. I will pass along what information I can, he is checking grounds right now. I did see a document regarding a water leak in that area, not sure if that has anything to do with it.
  8. Thanks to this thread I was able to shut my rear defroster off before the window shattered! My son heard a hissing noise and when I looked back saw the smoke just to the drivers side of the power sliding glass, turned off the defrost and it stopped. Since I work at a dealer it is in the shop now, my service department said they've seen a few blown out windows but apparently non of those customers described the same hissing and smoke I experienced. Waiting to see what they find, as of now it sounds like it was a short of some kind that keeps blowing the fuse.
  9. VIN Decoder & RPO Codes

    I think N2Q is a strange RPO, my GM parts catalog says that is for a owners manual in Slovak language!
  10. Floor mats

    That is my only complaint about my GM liners, the same style for the Colorado/Canyon do not have the notch by the pedal so I do not understand why they did them different on the full size trucks.
  11. Floor mats

    I have the GM liners, around work we call them "weather-tech style". Another guy has weather-tech in his 06 and they have curled and do not fit well anymore, the GM ones are more rubbery than plastic so they are softer and wont curl. Keep in mind too, if you go with weather-tech the lifetime warranty is not valid if you buy them from Amazon.
  12. GM originally had them all on national control, stock was not available for people to add them to a non-centennial edition but it looks like the restriction was lifted. Not sure where you ordered them through but I work at GMPartsNow.com, I set up a promo code for people on the forum for 5% off (FORUM5).
  13. I hadn't looked in a while but just noticed the centennial side door emblems are no longer restricted. https://www.gmpartsnow.com/oem-parts/gm-100-year-anniversary-door-emblem-for-both-doors-must-order-qty-2-84149657
  14. Temperature Sensor

    The sensors in the mirrors only applies to diesel models. They did make some major changes to adding camper mirrors to get them to function correctly, if you have the last 8 of your VIN I can tell you the correct part numbers you'd need.
  15. This has bothered me for some time! GM calls it a skid plate but when I think of a skid plate I think of a metal plate that actually protects the vehicle, not a fancy shiny piece of plastic!
