Rear Axle Wiring Harness Tape Problems

Post by rcg530 » Mon Jun 15, 2020 3:57 pm

I have a video I created back in 2018 that talks about a customer satisfaction campaign 15803 (not a recall) for the 2014/2015 Chevy SS / Caprice PPV rear axle wiring harness tape problem.

It's worth the few minutes it takes to check if this work was performed to your 2014-2015 Caprice PPV.

Post by rcg530 » Wed Jul 22, 2020 3:48 pm

I show you some of the minor mods I made to my 2014 Chevy Caprice PPV while I was waiting for the parts to repair the failed fuel pump.

I also document what the HVAC afterblow feature is and how you can use a scan tool to enable that feature in the HVAC control module.

2014-2017 Chevy Caprice PPV - Install Front Splash Shields

Post by rcg530 » Thu Jul 30, 2020 5:06 pm

I needed to replace the front splash shields on my 2014 Chevy Caprice PPV after I worked on my car to replace the front sway bar bushings.

The driver's side splash shield broke into pieces and the passenger side splash shield was not installed.

2011-2017 Chevy Caprice PPV - Replace Front Headlamp Assemblies

Post by rcg530 » Tue Aug 11, 2020 3:30 pm

I needed to replace the front headlamp assemblies currently installed in my 2014 Chevy Caprice PPV.

The front lenses were so bad that the amount of light emitted by the headlight bulbs is being greatly reduced by the poor quality headlamp lenses.

2014 Chevy Caprice PPV - Replace Front Fender Liners

Post by rcg530 » Sun Sep 06, 2020 8:09 pm

My 2014 Chevy Caprice's front fender liners needed to be replaced.

I purchased some aftermarket fender liner replacements mainly targeted for the 2008-2009 Pontiac G8.

They worked out quite well after some reshaping of the foam filler piece on the passenger side.
