The tonneau cover may detach from pickup bed

General Motors is recalling 1,236 Truck Hero tri-fold hard tonneau covers and tri-fold soft tonneau covers sold as accessories for 2019-2022 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500, 2500, and 3500 series trucks.

The tonneau cover may become loose from the rails of the pickup bed and detach from the vehicle while the vehicle is being driven.

A tonneau cover that detaches from a moving vehicle can become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Dealers will inspect the tonneau covers and -- if the cover is the hard tri-fold tonneau -- will replace the tonneau rails and clamps and add a tether.

For soft tri-fold tonneau covers, updated instructions, additional labeling, and a tether kit will be provided.

Repairs will be performed free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on May 16, 2022.

Owners may contact GM customer service (888) 988-7267. GM's number for this recall is N222359640.
