    Yes, took me about 30 minutes to do on my CTS and I have very limited mechanical skills. My co-workers Saturn Outlook, that may be a different story. I popped the hood and the mounting bracket for the heater is dead center on the firewall. It's going to be a tough reach. Speaking of brackets, before you buy the heater, take a look to make sure your bracket is still there. It is mounted on the firewall on the passenger side and very easy to get to. Some have reported that the recall wasn't completed properly and the dealer took their bracket. From what I have read, if you are missing the bracket, let AlphaTherm know and they will send one to you with your order.

    Awesome, thanks for the tip. I thought I saw it when I was changing the cabin filter this afternoon but will double check before proceeding. This seems like it will help with the bugs in the summer too!

    Re: Vin package lookup online?

    I just purchased an 08 CTS 3.6L DI. Now after reading through a lot of the threads list I am crossing my fingers I don't have all the issues.
    I beleive it is a later build 08 as it does have bluetooth. I am hoping someone can help me, I would like to know if all the recalls have been done on it an also if someone can let me know what all the options were that it came with. The VIN number is 1G6DS57V380212058. It dosn't have the nav system on it and I was wondering how hard it would be to change the exsting radio out to the nav? Also I only have a aux port 1/8mm jack, is there a kit to swap this out for a USB port? Thanks in advance for the help.

    I couldn't find the rpo sheet under the spare tire cover so I asked the dealer service writer while my car was in for service and he entered my s/n and printed one out for free.

    Re: Vin package lookup online?

    Hi everybody from Russia!
    I'm greatly glad to join this useful community! So, I'll try do anything useful for you.

    Can anybody provide me dealership history of my Caddy CTS (VIN 1g6ds57v780169134 USA made or the same Caddy VIN XWFDS57V180000268 Russia made). Also let me know RPO codes, if it's possible. Thanks and sorry for my English -)

    I'm very interesting if timing chain was changed by dealer.

    you might want to remove your email from that post (if it's not too late to edit it out)

    posting your email address on a busy forum like this is a good way to get lots of spam

    jkfcb01, Rippy is (as usual!) right on the money -- removing sensitive information from the public thread may be helpful to you. I have made a note of your information and will be emailing you shortly with my findings!
