    Do the new wheels nuts look different then the original ones the car came with ?? I thought I read something about a new style rim if the clicking was not resolved with cleaning and new nuts ???

    New wheels were on a previous iteration of the TSB that sadly I missed out on. That evolved into new rotors and then the lugs.

    It will come back. Try reversing in and locking the wheel out see if you hear it.

    I was able to get them to do the rotors for me as a courtesy.

    Clicking is back I have had all the TSB done still nothing. I have gotten pretty far internally with GM and they are talking now to the techs responsible directly.

    I remember one of the TSB showing they were working on a permanent solution by the end of this year still haven't seen anything..

    I have had the screen issue also going on with white lines though it. See this thread if you have it happening to you. http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...ml#post3158250

    Re: Another fix from GM for clicking wheels

    Some of these things kinda make you wonder what the engineers are doing.....I had the dreaded wheel clicking problem....dealer did the cleaning routine (per the TSB)...clicking came back and I took the dealer a copy of the TSB showing rotor replacement. They replaced the rotors....took them a copy of the lug nut replacement TSB....they replaced the lug nuts and torqued to the new spec. For some reason, the new rotors have warped...another set of new rotors at 24,000 miles. But, they won't replace the pads under warranty. I am working on that issue with Cadillac Customer Service as we speak. The other issue has been the differential...replace once and then replaced again 6 months later. Kinda makes me wonder what will happen next....life goes on!

    I'm sick of going to my dealership.. And the best compensation they could offer me was to pay half my car payment for the month.. She has escalated it though..

    I will keep you posted she's supposed to be in contact with me tomorrow.

    I had my lugs swapped a few months ago and still golden (knock on wood)!

    Re: Another fix from GM for clicking wheels

    I just read about this for the first time. I don't have any clicking in my wheels, that I have heard yet, but I am also in New England so I roll with the windows up for the winter months. Maybe I'll have to check for this with them down but I'm pretty sure I would have heard it already. My rotors are one piece and I have a Sedan and none of the brake TSB's have been done to my car.

    I would love to be provided with another update.
    First: Cleaning method= didn't work
    Second: Replace front brake rotors entirely = didn't work but made us happy
    Third: Replace lug nuts and also clean = Definitely not a long-term fix for most people from what I have read, clicking still exists.
    Fourth: ?? Long-term fix would be to sell our Cadillacs, let's hope GM get's to it before I do.

    Clicking is back! Had the TSB for the lug nuts done and it resolved the clicking noise for 3k miles but now it's back and louder (and annoying) than ever... I love this car, but this clicking is just too annoying for me... Going to give caddy one last try and then I'll be ready to part with the clickmobile...

    If the clicking is "louder" now after the lug change, then I guess it clearly shows that the issue is with the lugs. Maybe they need to try a different material or go back to the 150 lb'ft torque?

    I think the clicking is a result of weak abs....
