It is true, but check with your chevy dealer, they may be able to get this for you: VEHICLE SPEED SENSOR BUFFER Removal & Installation Ensure ignition is off. Disconnect negative battery cable. VSS buffer is located behind glove box. Remove 4 screws mounting VSS buffer to dashboard. Disconnect 2 small electrical connectors from VSS buffer. Remove VSS buffer. To install, reverse removal procedure. ADJUSTMENTS VEHICLE SPEED SENSOR BUFFER If axle ratio or tire size is changed, it is necessary to replace VSS buffer to ensure proper operation or 4WAL brakes, cruise control, speedometer and engine Electronic Control Module (ECM) or Powertrain Control Module (PCM). Failure to replace VSS buffer as required may affect driveability of vehicle and 4WAL brake operation. CAUTION: VSS buffer is sensitive to Electrostatic Discharge (ESD).
