    Cadillacforums.com Helps Get Me A New Rear End

    Got my car back from my dealer today (Martin Cadillac in NJ) after they took care of the two recalls and gave me my free Mobil 1 oil change (got one because there was a problem registering the car on the GM owners site).

    Before I brought it in, I spoke to the service rep about the "whine." Claimed he never heard of the problem before. So I printed out about 20 pages of documented cases from cadillacforums.com--and told them I could print another 100 pages or so.

    Apparently just about everybody in the shop got involved. The command decision was that they're going to order me a near rear end.

    BTW, I have TPIS headers and clear flow cats, as well as the More CAI and the complete BMR package. No problem with warranty. In fact, the service manager said: "This work was very well done." (Work was done by CarTek.) He did say that I'd still have noise even with the new rear end because of the BMR stuff. But I think I'll be able to live with it.

    the BMR kits have noises of their own, yes....but the whine is the diff and not the BMR>

    Sounds like you have a great Dealership. I think Cadillac needs to start reading this forum and start doing something about the problem, including letting the dealerships know about this problem. Cadillac would truly have a "great" car if they made the diff handle the power! Car and Driver had the same complaint, do they need anymor hints.

    Re: Cadillacforums.com Helps Get Me A New Rear End

    When i went out for a drive with my dealership service manager,And mentioned to him about the the rear end whine,He listened and he could deffinatly hear it.When we got back to the dealership he made his shop forman do a check with cadillac for any info about this,Sure enough there was a bulletin (from GM/CADILLAC) about the whine.The bulletin said that that the rear diff that are in these Vs have a tendancy to make these whines/howl due to non proper break-in period,And also very hard driving.It's up to the dealership/service-manager to drive other Vs (with same or close milage) and determin if also those Vs have the whine as-well,And if they do how bad is the whine compared to the initial rear diff in question.If it is determined that there is a substanial difference between other Vs and the one in quetsion,Then proper steps shoud be tooken to correct the problem.

    So my service MNGR drove other Vs & he could deffinatly hear the differance.
    So he checked in to see what cadillac says is the right way to fix this problem.So it turns out that they have to replace the rings & some other internal things inside the diff.Once that was determined,It was obviose that a whole new rear end was in order.
    Thats just what my SERVICE MNGR done

    So i think anyone with the whine should go directly to there service mngr & tell them about this bulletin

    Goofy perhaps, but effective nonetheless.
