  • Behind the Frunk’s Well Are These Components

    What is behind the frunk’s well, under that horizontal side to side shelf; what do we find? Clearly though we knew this a long time ago, is the battery, the brake master cyclinder and what else can we identify?

    Pictures thanks to Fasttoys and 69 and one other unknown source (sorry).

    When the hood is up we notice that behind the well is a shelf. How is it secured? We do not yet know, but know that it lifts up at the front, then completely off.

    I'm thinking wiper motor and washer fluid tank are in there.

      Yep you can see it in the pic of the blue one. Lower right corner.

        Our ME i8 Roadster has stuff there but you really need a 'body shop' to open the 'frunk' because of the electric drive motors and cooling stuff. It has a plug at the base of the windshield that you open to fill the windshield washer reservoir which is quite convenient. I hope the C8 has a similar arrangement.

          Not going to be that difficult for the C8, for that is where/how the battery would be accessed, if nothing more complex than a needed jump start.

            I was thinking that the battery will be difficult to change, but after seeing the video with the woman getting in and out of the "frunk", I've changed my mind

              I think before I climb in there I might cut a board to fit the bottom of the frunk, to distribute my weight over more area than just my two little feet.

                  It was at the end of the presentation at the Peterson Museum not long after the reveal. After a Q&A session, the crowd milled around checking out the car and a woman from the audience came forward and climbed in.

                    So, a well-designed compact package will fit. Good to know.

                      I think the 'scoop' to the left of the battery (facing the C8) is for the HVAC system

                        Agreed. (extra words to make the forum software happy)

                          More beyond frunk component pictures/video. If you watch the video, you will see the entire components immediately behind the frunk, under the shelf, in front of the windshield.

                          And a bonus start up video.

                            by looking at the battery size I think it does not have the auto start/stop. I heard the new Blazer has undefeatable start/stop.
