    I got mine the exact day they did it. Check right from Cadillac.

    Re: heated washer rebate

    jd mack,

    You might need to tell your servicing Cadillac dealer about the official GM / NHTSA Recall Bulletin, and request payment without further delay:

    "Page 25 July 2010 Bulletin No.: 10153B

    Question and Answer Section

    Q3. How much will each customer receive?
    A3. Customers will receive a $100 check from their servicing dealer within 30 days of recall completion.

    Q4. Why can't GM issue the checks?
    A4. Due to their age, our original sales records will not reflect any subsequent vehicle transactions or owner changes. Additionally, we don't have an in-house system that can handle this number of checks. So we are depending on our dealers to help execute this safety recall."

    _____

    FWIW, immediately after my dealer performed the recall service, I drove away with the $100 check in hand; and the very next day I installed the aftermarket plug-n-play AlphaTherm AT-37GM replacement unit. Sweet!

    For mine (in Canada), the check came straight from the dealer within 2-3 days...

    Your dealer is responsible for giving you the rebate.

    You were told wrong. The service bulletin and GM faqs on the recall explicitly say that the payment is to be issued by the dealer who then is reimbursed by GM as a warranty repair.

    Just had mine done today ...

    Just had the heated washer fluid recall performed today ... Will probably get the replacement unit (previously mentioned) sometime in the future.

    Regarding the $100 from the dealer, I was told the dealership's owner has the option to wait until they are reimbursed by GM before having to send the check. I was told (and it says on the invoice) that it could take 6 to 8 weeks before I could see the $$. Oh well ...

    Got the recall performed two weeks ago. Check from dealer arrived ten days later. AlphaTherm replacement to be delivered on Monday. Installation seems easy enough. If I remember to take installation photos, I'll post them later.

    Yes, after reading included photo instructions and watching video demo,
    my installation was completed in a few minutes - no tools required.
