Default I broke the Lumbar... *UPDATE* Fixed. (See post #9)

And this would not be a big deal for me because I don't use it pushed out but my wife uses it all the way out.

So here's how it happened.

I was moving the Nox out of the garage to do some work and it was in my wifes position. Its a LT2 so we don't have the memory switch. SO, I thought that if I left it in her position while I moved it for only a minute that it would be nicer for her to get back into it.

I am a big guy and when I pushed against the steering wheel to get my legs under it the lumbar popped back.

Crap, Now I have to get it fixed for her...

Yeah I think it is since my warranty is 5 years or 100k.

Bet she was not happy about that LOL would have been better off just changing the setting.

5 year ,100 k is for the powertrain .It should be covered under your 36/36 bumper to bumper .

If you have a decent dealer they should fix it even if you are over .
I am going to assume you bought it new ,so there are two things that will extend your
36/36
1, How many days has it been in a dealer for service ?
2,How many miles when on it when you took delivery ?
My wife's Malibu for example had 250 miles on it when I took delivery ,so the warranty is 36,250 .
If none of that works call Chevrolet Customer Assistance 800-222-1020.They have been a lot more lenient since the bankruptcy .
I hope this helps ,let us know what happens .

My brother helped me fix this tonight. I guess we were bored...

All it was was a broken screw that fastens the Lumbar into the seat.


I would think that this is a safety feature... My wife weighs a little over 100lbs and she has that seat all the way forward. Not to mention she likes to have the lumbar out too. If she were to get into a front end collision with the air bag deploying I would like to think that the lumbar giving way would be better for her back...

Broken Screw









I had a air stapler gun that doesn't work anymore so I took a screw with that with perfect fit fine screws.
carfan and wclukens like this.

Never thought about it doing that for safety but it would be a good thing. Nice that you got it fixed.

Saves the headache of the dealership... I don't know if they would have covered it on the warranty or not but if they did it would have been an hour of labor,disconnection of air bag and probably air bag diagnostic once reinstalled.... $$$

I had the same thing happen. The lumbar is built very cheaply. The dealer repaired the unit and then it broke again 2 months later. This is what I hate about modern cars. Cheap plastic parts.

Was it covered under warranty or did they charge you? How much if so and you don't mind me asking?

Nope, I had the same thing happen to mine (popped screw) and I was in and out of the dealer in under 30 minutes. Hasn't been a problem since...and that was over a year ago.
Covered under the bumper to bumper btw..
