    2013 ATS Front Headlight

    I have my 2013 ATS in the body shop and I need a front passenger headlight assembly replaced. I am told that there is not one available anywhere in the country and even Cadillac/GM has none in stock. Has anyone had to replace one yet and did you have a similar problem with getting the part from Cadillac/GM?

    HID or Halogen?

    There is an ATS that is being parted out in my area. Here is the craigslist post: http://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst...502893146.html

    Maybe they have your headlight.

    Had mine replaced under warranty in April - a couple week wait for the part at the time.

    My non-HID was replaced one year ago (deer impact) with no extra wait time. Bert

    I am being told that this HID self leveling headlight assembly is on National Backorder and no one can give me an estimated release date. I have tried to call my dealer, online parts stores, and Cadillac customer service. NO LUCK so far. There are supposedly 2 in stock and dealerships but they will not release the part. So my ATS sits in the body shop going on the second week now with no end in sight. I would like Cadillac or GM just to tell me the straight story on the part availability so I can plan my path forward. I am quickly thinking that Cadillac is not the company for me.

    Probably because they are trying to figure out why some are having leveling issues and do not want to release them before a fix. I am currently awaiting a fix for my HL's.

    And the grinding noise, I'm pretty sure they are sweating this one since they will have to replace so many.

    My 13 was in a few times for the left headlight pointing high and to the left.. they replaced the assembly and it's been fine since.. the right side still makes all kinds of grinding noises of which has yet to be addressed, maybe the national back order is why?

    Anyone find out the problem with the water/"sandy" effect inside the headlight. Dealer said there is no issue with mine.
