CSMT Mobile App Update and Job Aids

New resources are now available to U.S. dealerships for help with submitting or reworking warranty approval requests using the Pre-Repair Authorization (PRA) application (Fig. 13) in the Certified Service Mobile Toolbox (CSMT). The CSMT PRA tool is used to request GM pre-approval for warranty replacement of wheels, exterior mirror assemblies, seat covers, steering wheels, interior door trim, upper control arms, assist steps and specified recalls. PRA request decisions are communicated directly in the app so users can quickly get a message on their device as soon as a decision has been made.
