steering wheel

The silver on my steering wheel is peeling off. Anybody else had this happen? Did you get it fixed? How did they repair it? Thanks.

I haven't heard of this happening to anyone, but I'd recommend taking it to the dealership for warranty repair, assuming it just happened and didn't occur as the result of a spill of some caustic substance (very unlikely). I'd think it might be difficult to touch up the silver on that material properly, and it should be covered.

The leather started peeling on mine, but not the silver. The dealer was able to find another steering wheel with the blue stitching pretty quickly.

GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.
