    Wow! That is so great to hear! Thanks for sharing! I was actually going to post a question about whether anybody has had their S/C replaced after the factory warranty had expired. I've had my V for almost 4.5 years and I do have an extended GMPP. Thankfully, no rattle (only 41,000 KM), but I've been wondering if it's a question of when it's gonna start, rather than if...

    Best regards,

    Elie

    Hi Lindsay.
    Thanks for the great info.

    does this extention count for vehicles out of warranty? (expired)
    or the vehicles that already got a replace?

    and it should be a global extnsion right?

    WHOA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Question: Are they just gonna replace the coupling and leave the original blower in the car OR are they going to replace with a NEW entire supercharger and coupling?

    hopefully all of that will be in the letters GM starts to send out on the 30th (of May)

    Awesome is this going to be technical service bulletin or recall. Mine has the rattle but I never took it in just got use to the noise, really noticeable when I pull the V in to the garage.

    Thanx Lindsay,
    appreciate your reply however can you please just simply check if it is applicable to vehicles out of warranty?
    i'm asking because you said the letters will be sent out from 30th but my warranty expires at 29th.

    Re: Supercharger rattle

    hello I just saw this post and have had the rattle since I bought the car a year ago. I see they will be sending letters I am wondering how they will get the info I bought mine used and I want to make sure I get the letter so I can be armed with it when I got to my dealer. I am hoping they will be pulling from dealership service databases b ut was wondering if the person from Cadillac will let us know how we will get the notification. thanks in advance

    Re: Supercharger rattle

    It covers the supercharger from the original in service dat so yes it effectively extends your warranty on the supercharger.....if you're not modded obviously.

    I had my SC replaced last week. No idea if it has a solid isolator.

    Take yours in NOW, and complain about a rattle. Then you'll be on record BEFORE it runs out. I did this last year with a few things just before my Bumper-to-Bumper ran out, and they addressed them all. My Powertrain runs until July 14th?, so I should be ok.

    I think that I'll wait a bit for the ZL1 lid install then too...........
