    You don't mention what year..and I'm not sure how the lens would be gone...maybe if it's an EXT.

    The lens will not come off and cannot be replaced by itself. The lens is sonic/vibration welded to the rear lamp housing.

    The lamp housings are worth more then then internal parts. Your missing lens problem is either someone tried to fix it, steal it, or it hit the garage door.

    The lamps can be service. See www.ledfix.com . The carid site above does not have the third lamp for the Escalade.

    Um yes they do as I have looked on there they have three different styles of third brake light along with a large selection of taillights for the escalade.

    Here is a link to the third brake light on carid's site for proof http://www.carid.com/2003-cadillac-e...ht-272915.html so your claim of them not having a third brake light for the escalade is false.

    Re: 3rd brake light

    Ok...let me clarify...

    For the 2002 to 2006....A lamp that is a direct fit for the Escalade.

    The lamp you linked to is a 'Escalade-style' lamp. It is not a direct, OEM fitting lamp for the Escalade.. Note the panel pictured with the lamp. That panel has to be painted and attached to the vehicle.

    Also, it should be noted the EXT lamp and the SUV lamps look the same too...but are not interchangeable.

    i know that but there is a review on there where one person got one for a escalade and i have looked at mine and there are three screws holding it to the window also i ain't claiming that it is a oem fit but a aftermarket choice.

    You have a very trusting soul if you believe in posted internet reviews.

    Anyway, it's your lamp and your money. We checked on the aftermarket lamp you recommended today...

    6 month warranty (via 'live chat') Plus shipping. And be sure to review the return policy..looks like after 30 days you are pretty much on your own.

    I would strongly suggest getting that '6 month' warranty in writing.

    i don't think i would chance it with the 6 month warranty cause i got a set of taillights that are led and one of the led's is acting up unlucky me it is out of warranty but it is a good choice if someone wanted a aftermarket light but i don't need one thankfully i didn't pay for the set of taillights i have on my truck cause it had got a bit of rear end damage thanks to my dad which ended up breaking the lens on the right taillight.
