  1. Gen 1 Volt - Window Regulator - 1st Design vs 2nd Design

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I've found a few good threads on replacing the window regulator/motor - including some detailed video. What I can't figure out is exactly what part I need to order for my 2014 Volt. I almost pulled the trigger on Amazon for a Dorman unit (which has a matching OEM # as found on other sites)...
  2. Windows still very wet after rolling up/down

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I've only driven a Nissan Maxima and a Dodge Caravan but with both of them, whenever I rolled the windows down then up, it would wipe away any water on the outside and any condensate on the inside of the window. On my Volt, I've noticed this isn't the case. The windows come up pretty much wet...
  3. Need a Front Driver's side Window Regulator

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    My volt got broken into (they didn't get anything of value). I got a place to replace the glass for now, but the regulator is also busted so I can't roll up or down my window. I'm trying to find the part online and I'm having difficulty finding it. I found one on gm parts direct but i have no...
  4. Wonderful Hidden Feature I JUST Discovered!!!

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I've always been frustrated that the sun visor is too short to block the sun from the side window. I discovered (quite by accident) that if you pull on it, it slides out on a little rod and extends out another 4 inches or so! Both driver and passenger visors do this and now it does block the...
  5. Door locked from smashed window

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Hi, long time lurker (2009) first time posting. I have a 2013 Volt, just hit 8k miles. I was out for dinner the other night and had my passenger rear window broken by a vandal. I opened the door and cleaned the broken glass out right then and there. The next day I took it to the glass repair...
  6. Power Window Woes

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    My passenger side window will not roll up. :-( Just before I rolled over 65,000 miles on my 2011 Volt, I rolled down my windows just a tad to let some of the hot summer heat out, and when I rolled them back up, the passenger door window stayed put. I rolled it down again, and it rolled down...
  7. Found a Use for Remote Window Rolldown

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Earlier tonight, I was driving around with my son, who was sitting behind me in a car seat. We reach the store, and I jump in the backseat to do a cleanup before go in. Well, once I finish with that, I attempt to open the door to get out, but I CAN'T!!! :) I realize that all the child safety...
  8. Window Fogging Fix

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hello All, Been an owner for around 5 weeks and overall I love the car! I've been lurking on this sight for a while and have finally decided to add my two cents. Bottom line is: Both Recirculation buttons must NOT be green, they need to be BLUE if you are having a window fogging issue...
  9. Rear Window Decal?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Does anyone have any pics of their Volt (or any other Volt) with a rear window decal? You know, like a university decal, or "Semper Fi", or the guy peeing on a Ford, etc. ;) I want to put a university decal on mine, but want to see what everyone else is doing. Do you put it at the top of the...
  10. Window size

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Volt's window size is noticeably smaller than a standard car window (e.g. Honda Accord). Why? To increase insulation?
  11. No Pinch driver window

    Totally Off-Topic
    Today, I found by mistake on my part, how nice the auto window system stops and opens the window when it ever so lightly found my arm. Very pleased how well it works. In the past, my auto windows had stopped, but no auto open feature. Another nice detail :-)
  12. Windows Decal Placement (e.g. University or School)

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hi there! I'm a long-time lurker, first-time poster. I have a question about displaying my university's decal (you know, the sticker with the name of your school on it). My particular decal adheres to the outside of glass, as opposed to the inside. Normally I would put it on the rear window...
  13. Window Tint

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    Has anyone had their rear and side windows tinted? I was thinking about doing it but I don't want to because I'm afraid it could cause an issue with the rearview mirror dimming the headlights of the cars behind me. Thoughts???
  14. Shriker's short wish list
