    need Valence/ferring for front bumper, 2010 DTS

    I have been informed the rubber valence or ferring that sits under the front bumper (little rubber strip) was optional on the 2010 and 2011 DTS's. I am looking for one to put on my DTS, as it was missing upon purchase. Anyone having info on this part and where to find it please respond. The Cad dealer tried a 2009 and it did not fit. Thanks

    #PIC5059A: Front Fascia Air Dam Missing - (Sep 24, 2009)
    Subject: Front Fascia Air Dam Missing

    Models: 2009 - 2010 Buick Lucerne
    2009 - 2010 Cadillac DTS

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This PI was superseded to update model years. Please discard PIC5059.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.

    Condition/Concern:
    Dealership new car prep personnel may notice the front fascia no longer has attachment slots for the dealer installed air dam. Beginning with some vehicles built on 12/08/08, a change to the front fascia eliminates the dealer installed front air dam.

    Recommendation/Instructions:
    Do not make any repair attempts on these vehicles.

    Can anyone explain this reply to me. I am guessing the part is not available because it was not made for the 2010?

    The Cad dealer tried a 2009 and it did not fit. Thai !!

    Cadillac's own bulletin #PIC5059A: Front Fascia Air Dam Missing - (Sep 24, 2009)
    Vehicles built after 12/08/08 (2009) the front fascia no longer has attachment slots for the dealer installed air dam

    You could drill about 30 holes to install it.
