The ends of the chrome strips are covered by the end caps and were put back on once the chrome strips were removed.
I worked my way along the strip, heating a foot or so then carefully pulling/prying it loose. I used some fairly soft wedges to aid in pulling it loose. eta: I removed both end caps from the running boards too.
If it came from the factory with Nav, then you should have an SD card. If you are the 1st owner, look in the glove box for it, the dealer may have forgot to insert it. If it did not come from the factory with Nav then I think you are SOL. GM used to sell them on the Accessories site, but It appears it is no longer available.
We had a Dodge Charger police car that did not have one either, it was about a 2005 model year. I went and talked to the service manager and he ordered us one, free of charge. Didn't seem very logical to place a needed police unit out of service for a weekend if it showed low fluid at the start of a shift on a Friday night.
I don't know what all sizes come on them, but the manual says not to use chains on these: LT265/70R17, LT275/65R18, 275/60R20, 275/50R22 Looks like the WT truck you can get a 255/70R17 so it might have enough clearance to take chains. I'll stop by my local tire store and test fit a set for the back tires, that will satisfy my state's carry chains requirement. Thanks!
How was the clearance on the back tires? Looking in the Owner's Manual to see what they require/recommend I discovered I can't run chains with my 275/60R20 tires, so I've been researching "Alternative Traction Devices" such as the "AutoSock" that my state approves. My state (WA) requires drivers to carry chains or an "Alternative Traction Device" when going over mountain passes in the winter, even if your vehicle is 4x4/AWD. I don't go over the passes very often, and hardly ever during winter, but since I plan on keeping my 19 HC for a long time I thought I'd pick up a set of chains for it, just in case. But if the chains have enough clearance on the back tires then installing them there will satisfy our state's carry chains requirement.
Mine leaked on the passenger side, they resealed the spoiler and and all was good for a little over a year. This summer it started leaking on the drivers side, they replaced the window this time. Time will tell if it is the final fix.
