Default OEM Fire Extinguisher - Anyone Installed This?

I was browsing through a parts catalog and came across what seems to be an oem bracket and extinguisher for much cheaper than the aftermarket ones - part number 22851772.

Here is a link: http://www.gmpartshouse.com/chevrole...et-2-5lb-abc-2

Google doesn't show me anything about this. Is it legit (mounts right up), and where does it mount?

Thanks!

Genuine OEM Factory Part
Fire Extinguisher and Bracket (2.5LB BC)(2 KGS)

?? for Saudi export ??

I keep a small one in my back cubby. See no need to mount one outside where it is visible.

Yeah I saw the Saudi thing too - I assume this was an option for export cars, hence why there's no info on it for us on this side of the pond.

But I don't see why it wouldn't work, just wondering if anyone has this or has even seen it - seems like a great price @ ~ $35 including extinguisher instead of $90 for the bracket alone...

Cool find. Some fire extinguishers have expiration dates, wonder if it's still good.

Good point. My local dealer in Toronto recognized the P/N but is unable to order it. I emailed Patrick @ Cultrag - his site also shows it for ~35$ and goes right to the checkout page so it appears to be in stock.

Will provide an update when I hear back if nobody has other experience to chime in with.

Just FYI - Patrick at Cultrag replied to me and said this seems to be a new P/N so they don't have further info on it. Also not available for them to order.

I find it strange that a new P/N would come out for this item on the C6.. but anyway it looks like we're stuck with the aftermarket options for now.
