Hatch Handle TSB

7 posts in this topic

Hey guys, went to open the hatch of my 14 spark ls and the latch broke. Went to the dealership and was told that there is a TSB out for that stating that a new cable and latch mechanism is required to fix the inadequate original design.

Thanks! I've been frustrated since mine broke. Did they fix it? Was it covered?

Yeah, fixed for free at the dealer.

Be aware that they will only fix it if it is still under the bumper to bumper warranty. A TSB is just a service bulletin and not like a recall.

Actually the 'latch' thing is a safety issue since a defective latch could cause the hood to fly open at speed...My recall says a safety issue under the NHTSA..the TSB is also used..anyways..it is a safety recall covered during and after warranty has expired...Really a simple thing as it relates to a rusty latch pivot..I just greased it before rust set in..so I'm dine.

The original post said the latch for the hatch broke. I took that to mean the back which there is no recall on.

Right, was the rear hatch. Sorry for any confusion.
