GM Releases Fix For Missing 2023 GMC Sierra HD Torque Converter Housing Access Hole Cover1
GM has published a service update for certain units of the 2023 GMC Sierra HD because the access hole cover of the torque converter housing was not installed during production, which can also be referred to as the inspection port dust cover.
This service update about the missing cover also affects certain units of the 2023 Chevy Silverado HD.
The problem: the access hole cover, or inspection port dust cover, was not installed on the torque converter housing of a few 2023 GMC Sierra HD pickups at the time they were produced.
The fix: GMC dealerships are directed to install the correct access hole cover on the torque converter housing of affected 2023 GMC Sierra HD trucks. GM recommends that dealerships wait to order the necessary part until inspection confirms the fix is necessary for a truck, because very few Sierra HDs are affected.
Technicians need to raise the vehicle on a lift to access the torque converter and carry out the fix. A total of 12 minutes of labor is necessary to complete the service.
Affected vehicles may still be in dealer inventory or may have been sold to customers. The bulletin expires at the end of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty period for affected GMC Sierra HD pickups.
