These are the procedures to dealers for swap out the bad packs.

I've only had a chance to quickly skim. One is for 2017 to 2019 Bolts. The other is for 2020 to 2022 EV and EUV.

Update: Great. On Oct 15th, I received an email at work asking us not to bring our Bolts to work "until the recall is completed/there is a process in place to fix this". :( I just finished typing up a long reply to this.

Add my work to one of a bunch of places that are banning Bolts. :(

Oct 16 update: There are reports that some high priority people are in line to receive replacement packs. And, packs have started showing up at dealers:

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium (former)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium (lease over)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.
