    Search "How To"

    Hey guys:
    Seems like my questions on here are "duplicates" as others have asked the same or similar in the past. For whatever reason, when I seem to input any of the key works I can think of into the search box, I get everything but what I am looking for. For example, I input cabin filters and 7+ pages came up. I see a couple cabin filter inquiries, which seem to be duplicates. Lately, on some of my posts, I seem to get locked out by a certain individual....what gives.????
    I have to be honest.............MOST of the questions on here have been asked and answered SOMEWHERE on this forum, probably multiple times. So what if its asked again 2 years later. Might be some good info for anyone new on the forum...................like myself.
    I don't know how everyone else feels here but to me no question is a dumb question.............
    To get an answer like " Seriously, this could be found on a search " is a really rude and naive answer.
    Sorry if I seem alittle hot under the collar, but I have to admit, I may ask some pretty easy questions, but they are questions just the same. No one here should judge whats a quality question as opposed to a question with so obvious of an answer. If the people take the time to ask.............why can't we consider it valid, and help them out.
    Trying to belittle someone for asking is unwarranted, and counter productive.

    My two cents as always........

    Re: Search formalities

    I did the following
    Click on "Search this Cadillac Forum"
    Click on "Advanced Search"

    Fill in like I did


    That returns these results


    Clicking on the one closest to the top answers your exact question


    Quite simple

    Thanks OBX for taking the time to explain, much like you did about the nav wire in a previous post.

    Much appreciated!

    Re: Search formalities

    hey.. also being fairly new to this forum i was having the same problem with trying to search..

    .. actually found this very helpful...

    ... they should have an option under the search tab Forum Searching for Dummies cause i would be willing to bet a lot of other new members would benefit from seeing how to search specific to one forum.

    could not have said it better myself. PERFECT RESPONSE. Search for dummies is kind of funny...but fits the bill

    Re: Search "How To"

    Thanks guys
    I assumed everyone who comes here knew how to do this.
    The general rules in forums like this are:
    Don't start a new thread, if you find an old thread with the same (or similar) topic you desire.
    Just post a reply in the old thread to bring it to the top of the list.
    The moderators don't like new threads being opened when there are existing threads with your questions/answers.
    They may be old threads, and buried deep on page 20, but if you post a reply in them, the old thread will then be on page 1.

    Re: Search "How To"

    I've been on this forum for 2 days now, trying to research some things, and I haven't been able to find them. Being that this forum is as old as it is, I'm sure the questions I have, have been answered already - and if that's the case I'd like to be able to find those answers, but I haven't yet.

    Questions:
    How do you remove the factory cd changer (04 ESV)?
    Does anyone have any pics of a subwoofer install on an ESV?

    Re: Search "How To"

    what about the new advanced search. You can't search by the forum any more. "escalade 100000 mile service" (100k, 100,000) turns up nothing but results in other boards.
