The warranty should have nothing to do with this. It's a safety recall, so the GM dealer has to honor it, if you fall in the VIN # affected from 2005-2007.


#06041C: Product Safety - Body-Color Roof Adhesive Separation - (May 21, 2007) Subject: 06041C -- Body-Color Roof Adhesive Separation

Models: 2005-2007 Chevrolet Corvette

With Body-Color Roof

This bulletin is being revised to include (30) 2007 model year vehicles (U.S. and Export). Discard all copies of bulletin 06041B, issued November 2006.

This recall was released in phases. As each phase was released, Customer Satisfaction Program 05112 was cancelled. Vehicles that were not repaired under Customer Satisfaction Program 05112 were transferred into this safety recall. In addition, vehicles that had the roof replaced, and according to the repair order did not have the adhesive foam applied, were called back for the adhesive installation. Vehicles that had the temporary roof installed (T5641) were also called backed for roof replacement.

Condition
General Motors has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 2005-2007 Chevrolet Corvette vehicles equipped with a body-color roof. Some of these vehicles have a condition in which the adhesive between the roof panel and the frame may separate. If there is a partial separation, the occupant may notice one or more symptoms, such as a snapping noise when driving over bumps, wind noise, poor roof panel fit, roof panel movement/bounce when a door or hatch is closed, or a water leak in the headliner. If there is a complete separation, the roof panel may detach from the vehicle. If this were to occur while the vehicle was being driven, it could strike a following vehicle and cause injury and property damage.
Correction

Dealers are to apply adhesive foam to the roof panel to ensure the proper adhesion, or, if signs of separation are found, install a new design roof panel.
