  1. Some curiosities about the Volt we just adopted.

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    First, I wonder if the steering wheel is supposed to have some level of play in it or not? With the car off and thus no steering assist, I can wiggle the wheel and it feels like it's got actual slack, not just the usual play of the tires at the "resting position." I'm still able to control the...
  2. Help with Front Parking Camera installation...

    Gen2 Volt Accessories and Modifications
    I just purchased a 2019 Volt. I am wanting to install a front parking camera, however I am not too sure where I should tap into for power. Most install instructions I can find are for rear parking cameras, and they tap into the brake light. I thought about using the daytime running lights...
  3. Rattling noise

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen2 Volt
    When I driving against the wind or higher than 40 mph hear a rattling noise coming from the front, I have checked for any loose components or cables, seems to be related to the speed of the air in front of the car. My next step is to get a couple of ramps and see if there is something loose...
  4. Park Assist Audible alert

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    I have a new 2017 Volt. The park assist only seems to have an audible alert in reverse. When in drive and close enough to the car in front so that the bars are visible on the dash there is no audible alert. The service tech and the Volt assistance people are not really sure if it is present or...
  5. 2012 Volt headrests, front and back

    Chevy Volt Engineering and Design
    It has taken quite a bit of digging to figure out how to remove both the front and rear headrests of my brand new used car! I hope it may be helpful for someone else to have all that in one place, so I'm posting it here. The Volt parts are not interchangeable with other Chevy parts -- no...
  6. Need help to locate a part number for the FOG/DLR Lights

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Hello. I just noticed that one of my front lower bumper lamps is broken, possibly due to road debris or ice...(Not sure if calling this is Fog lamps or DLR lights) See the pictures. Have been trying to locate a replacement part online but had no luck to find the part. I was able to find the...
  7. Front end rattle

    Mechanical Systems - Chevy Volt
    HI. I've had my Volt for about two months. It has about 1700 miles on the clock. Now that the weather is warmer, I'm driving with the windows open more frequently. I've noticed and squeek-clack sound coming from the front end whenever I hit a bump. It sounds like a loose brake caliper. I'm...
  8. Scrapping the front?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Is anyone else having a problem with curbs, driveways and bumps? Within a few days, it was very clear to me that the front of the Volt is very low, and I've become super-consious about it. Even being aware of it and being extra cautious, I still scrape the bottom no matter what I try to do to...
