Wanna catch the dealer screwin the general?

 

Take a paint marker and mark the back of your grill. After the truck is fixed check for the mark left. I bet the dealer will snap a new emblem into your old grill and charge GM for an entire grill asm.

Well, I have been told that all parts under warranty have to be shipped back for inspection, so GM can warranty if need be with their supplier...so I would guess if they say the replace, they do!  Later,  :D  :chevy:  :seeya:

 

 

 

 

No way is GM gonna pay to ship all those busted parts back. It would be cheaper to hire somebody to travel around and check them out.

Maybe a big chisel too... biggrin.gif

 

And if that don't work...you know what they say...there are very few things in life that can't be accomplished with the application of high explosives...haha reddevil.gif

 

Maybe a "smoke wrench" would do the job?? :seeya:

Funny you should bring this topic up…..I just recently learned there are actually 2 different bowties for 1999 to current GMT800 Chevrolet trucks and SUV’s. One has two prongs that snap it into the grill shell and the other has two large stubs that are fastened buy body nuts. I have not figured out which part number is used on which vehicles…but there are defiantly 2…..3 counting the HD trucks.

 

I just found this out a few weeks ago as I was changing the bowtie on my 2004 Tahoe Z71 that was cracked all to pieces by our winter road sand here in CO. (Grateful to have broken stuff instead of rusted body panels due to salt like most of you east of Kansas)

 

The part number for the bowties…. Both cost about $20. Give your dealer the VIN to secure the proper emblem.

 

Stubs : 12335700 :seeya:

Snap in: 12335633 :chevy:

 

Either way, you have to remove the headlights, park lights and unfasten the radiator support cover as well as 5 plastic fasteners then 1 10MM bolt to remove the grill shell. The whole deal takes less than 10 minutes.

When I came in to show them the emblem, I kid you not 4 mech, plus 2 service writers all came out at the same time sticking there fingers everywhere and all said yep, gotto replace the entire grill.
