2016 Chevrolet Volt: Cargo Cover Hook Malfunction
by Reese Counts, Vehicle Testing Assistant on March 4, 2016
It's frustrating when something little like this happens.
I was staring at the cargo area in our long-term 2016 Chevrolet Volt with my hands on my hips. I was attempting to install the small sheet of fabric that Chevrolet deems fit to call a cargo cover when one off the hook points comes loose.
The cover has four points that loop onto hooks. These hooks just push into the trim and turn, but that turn requires more force than my fingers could apply. I ran upstairs to the office and grabbed a set of pliers out of the testing equipment. This gave me enough grip and leverage to turn the hook back into place.
This whole thing was more annoying than anything, considering the cargo cover doesn't tug too terribly hard on the hooks. I'll be counting the days until another hook decides to break free.
