I received Part # 42521453 for the Encore GX today and the good news is it is a METAL JACK it has the exact same numbers on it as the jack ZR2LIFE posted pictures of. So now the only question is how long GM will carry the 42521453 part number.
Since I had already purchased another metal metal jack off eBay and in the Pay It Forward Spirit and to avoid being accused of "Hoarding Metal Jacks" I am going to put the names of all those that contributed to this thread and reported having a PLASTIC JACK in a hat and draw one name and I will send them the metal jack. I will announce the winner tomorrow.
Brownactive,And the winner of a brand new shiny METAL JACK GM part number 42521453 is brownactive, so if you message me your address I will get it in the mail to you.
That’s a good idea, save the $17 shipping. Since it’s a Buick part I wonder if you might have to go through a Buick dealership to order it.I wonder if you can order directly from the dealership and pick it up to avoid shipping?
I also can't find any information confirming this recall. Neither GM or the NHTSA has any information which is odd considering they would be the first to report an official recall.
