I have solved the short wire issue from the righthand license plate socket. If you look inside the rectangular hole you'll notice the harness runs through a retainer, if you move the wires down they slide right out and give you about 1.5'' more slack. Of course you'll never be able to put it back but who cares your bulb is now changeable.
Tried to take a picture but couldn't peak in the hole with my cell.
bswarm Just realized I had an endoscope camera, here's a picture of that hook that holds the harness to the right hand license plate bulb. You just need to slip the wires over this hook and it gives you about 1.5"-2" of play.
As a passtime I repair GM flip keyFOBs. If you look at the one on the left you will notice it needed a new switch. This type of damage is usually caused by long finger nail on thumb. If you look above the unlock icon on the left you will notice the arced gouge in the rubber the shape of a finger nail. Installed 2 new cases and a new lock switch in the left FOB, I have a new happy customer. Dealer wanted over $400 to replace these.
I strongly suggest owners of this type of flip key to get a silicone cover to protect the buttons. Especially the Trax since the replacement case is not yet available.
The area I live in rarely gets rain. That is the only reason to have them I felt. Best case they allow some ventilation without being too much. Worst case they mess up your aerodynamics and lose you what, a 1/4 of a MPG. Realistically it comes down to looks. I personally don't like the look on the trax. It seems to be too "bumpy" for me.
Does anyone know when, where or how I can obtain side rails for my 2020 Trax ? I see numerous ads on Ebay and Amazon or Corrid and GMGiant sites but when I put "2020 Chevy Trax" the response is always the same. "Does not fit your vehicle".
My trim package did not include these and I would...
I'm in Dayton, OH. I have a 2017 Trax LT with a sunroof. It's fwd, 35,000 miles. Good so far. Had the control arm recall. One was bad, the other good. They told me up to six weeks to get parts. They gave me me in an LS loaner 2020. I was lucky, got it back in a day.
Yesterday I became an owner of a 2020 Trax LS. I am an admin on another VerticalScopes car forum and know that there can be a plethora of good information found on forums.
Looking forward to reading about tips/tricks/mods/ accessories for a Trax.
