Hello! I'm hoping this great forum can save the day once again. I've broken a circular plastic piece with a center hook in my trunk... and am looking for a replacement. It doesn't have a part number anywhere that I can see. Worse still, keyword searches have yielded no results. The small plastic piece in question is pictured below.

There are two in the trunk area, on both the left and right bulkheads. Any and all help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

The embedded image link doesn't appear to work with google photos, so I have linked it to an album. Thanks

sure thing. Gotta love GM parts direct. Sometimes items take a LOT of searching since they're not always listed in what I would assume to be a logical place, but they usually always come through.

I am in Canada so the cost for the part plus shipping is awful. I fixed mine with a garden variety cup hook and some shrink tubing and a little custom bending. Screwed the cup hook into the back of the plastic insert and it works like a charm. Barely noticeable although not perfect. I can of course still replace it any time so if I need a real part and have to place an order I will get it then!

It is the primary weakness of the volt. :)

Thingiverse to the rescue! You can get this 3D printed for much cheaper...

There's a guy in the UK here that 3D prints them out of a tougher plastic. I think he got fed up having broken all of his!

If you want to try tougher ones, I'll see if I can find the link.

If you have the broken part you can repair it better than new. The parts are hollow and if you insert part of a suitably sized nail or screw along with some JB Weld, you will have a permanent fix. You may have to do some drilling, if required.
