Warning against Vinyl roof wrap or cloth roofs

Can I apply Vinyl roof wrap or cloth roofs on GM vehicles

No!  GM has issued a TSB Warning against Vinyl wrap or cloth roofs if the vehicle has on factory OnStar or XM radios. The antenna for these systems is installed in the roof. Covering these antennas not only caused degraded radio performance, but may actually cause water leaks that can damage electrical connections. GM further advises dealers not to relocate the antenna just so they can install the aftermarket roof coverings.

The vehicles covered by the TSB are: All 2002-05 GM passenger cars and trucks and 2003-05 Hummer H2’s with XM or OnStar.
