The original was much larger than the replacement (GM 19178634). Ultimately I found it easier to remove the entire assembly and replace the solenoid on the bench. I later tested the original solenod with a suitable 12V power supply; I found that it frequently would stick in the retracted position.
It's listed in TSB (#99-08-64-016A) as being one of the two products that should be periodically applied to weatherstrip surfaces. A cheaper option is dielectric silicone grease (GM 12345579 or equivalent).
When the radio does not receive any frames on the J1850 bus from the XM module it will remove the soft button for XM bands.
