    vent knobs

    About 2 months after I got my 2005, while cleaning the dash I hit one of the knobs that directs the airflow out of the center dash vents and broke it off. I epoxied it back on, but it keeps breaking off. Does any one know how I can get the parts number so I can order a replacement? I quess I'll need to order the complete vent assembly. It's the complete top part of the vent section that has the 2 vent knobs, and it looks like I should be able to just pop it off and replace it. Thanks.

    Everyone should save this link on their desk top. It will help you find a lot of part numbers. Take the PN to GM Parts Direct: Your direct source for Genuine GM Parts or PM James at Lindsay Cadillac.

    Thanks for the parts list. That's what I needed. I though GM parts direct would have a searable interface.

    At GMPD if you don't have a PN it's impossible to find anything. At Lindsay Cadillac it might be a tad higher but it's nice to communicate with someone.
    Did you save that link on your CTS Parts List?

    Re: vent knobs

    Absolutely. Great reference I wasn't aware of. I found the part on pg 128--pt. 30, Plate accessory trim, but it lists it as "with" and "without" towing package. Odd that that would make a difference. I don't have a towing package, but then under "without" it lists 1st design and then second design. Any idea what that means? Thanks for your help Robert. You're a great resource for everyone.

    Dammit! That knob is under warranty? I've been driving around with a broken one since I got my 03., I heard it's over $200. I think my warranty just ran out too..

    Original post from 2006. Someone bumped it up to ask for the SRX list. LOL. Which dash you got, and pics/pricing?

    Re: vent knobs

    Hmm, how ironic this thread was brought up. I too need a vent knob. The one that I need is on the passenger side and is seen in this picture, the before of course. It's not exactly black, like the center two are, but it's a brownish/tanish.

    If you have it, let me know please
