    Well if you still have cover you should glue it back on. I just painted mine black similar to you when it fell off and used some silicone adhesive to get it back on. Im gonna give it a water test in 2days see if the signature water seeping in the reverse light happens. Haha

    Silicone adhesive worked like a charm . No more water in my reverse light.

    looks good. I think Cadillac missed the mark not painting them satin black at the factory.
