Took mine in three weeks ago. It failed inspection and I've been AWP (awaiting parts) ever since. Called dealer yesterday asking about it since I'm taking the truck north the end of the week. Service manager said they have no status as to when the replacement part will be in. I told him I better not have issues while I'm on the road next week.

Was having issues with intermittent heat. Seemed worse on cold days. Turns out the surge reservoir tank had a small crack on the nipple flange. Only leaked when the engine was working hard and pushing coolant into the overflow tank which is why I could never see anything on my driveway. Dealer replaced the whole reservoir under warranty. Said they re seeing quite a few of these lately so there maybe a future recall in the making. Just passing on so folks be sure and check it out.

Mine was not cracked and i put the hose clamp my self but i was still getting emails from Onstar. I went to my dealer and they said they had to do the repair in order to get the recall cleared on my truck from GM and Onstar. So i had them do the repair.Installed hose clamp. No big deal,took about half hour.

I adjusted my clamp yesterday, just slightly loosen it and turn the temp knob back and forth from cold to hot. I watched it. It rotates about 90 degrees. Then when sure its not hitting anything tighten up the clamp so it cant slip any more. Eazy peezy...

Part came in just before Christmas. Couldn't take the truck in till this past Tuesday. This was the first one the dealer found bad. It would have been done in one day however GM instructions didn't mention new doors also require a different actuator. Square drive actuator will not work with the new door. New actuator arrived the next day. Picked up the truck Wednesday. So far no dash squeaks.

Been two months since I had the door & actuator replaced, all good no dash squeeks or rattles.

Took my '15 in, had one crack and they installed the clamp. I was so thankful that it didn't need a new door, the dealer was happy as well since it is such a nasty job.

I only have the one crack too and installed the clamp myself. But Im still leery about leaving it alone as I kept my 1st Gen collie 10 years and don't have that warm & fuzzy feeling this fix will last 10 years.

While you are right it does seem to be one nasty job, I'll be tackling this myself once spring time rolls around...... Im not about to take a chance with My Baby being man-handled by the dealership.
