After reading in the search tab,where to find my birth date I suddenly got to
wondering what my SSR doesn't have versus the later 05 my?! I didn,t
realize GM made a modification to the door panels?! I can get my hand along
side the seat barely.but Iam more concerned with the rear end,drive line and
any electrical enhancements?How do some of you guys find out this information?
I guess, when a part or component fails,service tells you?TSB?!I got the most important part(LS2 and tranny).Curious to know what I might be able to update
if possible?! Hal

Will someone post a picture of both versions of door panels. My car was made Sept 1st and I think I have the newer panel that is slightly concave. I would like to see both versions myself. As a matter of fact I will post a pic of what my 9/1/04 build came with.

'06 Door Panel

Here's a photo of my '06 panel. I'm not sure when they made the change, but I have no trouble working the seat controls, even though they are by feel only.

There are a number of very minor changes to the DIC between the '05 and '06, but nothing you can do anything about. Other than wanting newer door panels, I don't think you have any issues....

Ahhh it is different. The newer version has that pressed in area just rearword of the door speaker and the door pocket opening is smaller. Thats funny because its tight but I have little trouble adjusting my seat.

Ricochet,

The '05 I had before we got the '06 was built in May of 2005 and had exactly the same panels as the '06. There must have been a changeover date in early 2005 to the new design.

It has been noted in a couple of earlier threads... change was made to use a smaller map pocket door right after Labor Day. Sept. 7, 2004.

BTW: For me it doesn't make a big difference either way... because earlier door panel works fine for me.
:rolleyes:
