Yes I got one too. I think it is only for certain production numbers. I was on GMLink and knew about it before it came, but it specified on GMLink that it was only vettes built before a certain date that needed to heed the recall. I am guessing if you got the notice you need it fixed. MyGMLink says that it was for production cars from January 8th, 2004 through April 20th, 2004 that are affected. You MAY have the suspect washers if your car was built on or between these dates. It says not all cars built between these dates have the weak washers, but its best to check to be sure! :z:

so I'm guessing that it's probably not safe to drive the car till it's looked at

Had the washer recall done about a month after I got the car and it took about an hour at the dealership to replace all of them. Have not received any other recalls (column lock etc) since buying the car in May 04. :yeadog: :yeadog: :yeadog:

Yep I got that one... Seemed like a good excuse to take it to 21st Century Muscle Cars and get all new poly suspension put in!!!

How do you access "GMlink" to check this? I have done 4 DE's in my car, and it was built in April of '04, but I don't remember getting a notice.

I don't want a track incident due to a .5 cent part.

thanks.

I got one today about the electronic column lock. I guess it is safe to assume that my '02 predates the washer problem. Thanks for sharing the info with us though. :z:

You just go to www.MyGMLink.com and then click on register. After you fill in the few questions it will take you to a main page where you can input your VIN. Putting it in helps them know the specifics of your car and you will see recall messages on your home page when they are announced. Hope that explains it.

Got the notice for my '04 MS Z06. I'll take it in to my dealer at the end of the month.

We were doing "parade" laps at Daytona in Feb (115 mph)

Glad we didn't know about the recall then!

This was done on my Z16 Z06 2004 before I took delivery.
This recall has been around since last year around Nov-Dec.

-Bill. :eek:o:

Applies to all Z06's after certain vin#
