    Question 2002 Console lid on 2003

    I've had my EXT for 2 weeks now, upgrading from a 2002 Avalanche. For the most part I am happy with this truck, but some minor things seem to say "we needed to save a buck". First, the Av had a hood lamp, none is present on the EXT. This is not a big deal, I have always carried a flashlight but how much of a savings was this. The next thing was a lack of a cabin filtering system, again standard on the Av. Following that is the lack of simple storage items in the center console cover, which BTW locked on the Av. The Avalanche had places in the lid for a pen, pocket tissue holder, a place for insurance and reg documents, etc.

    Looking around, it appears that the 2002 EXT was equiped with a double open console lid, providing this extra storage area. My question is this, can the 2002 lid be used on a 2003 console?


    Cheers,
    Bear

    The under hood light kills me on a 60k SUV no under hood light

    Yea, Putz is at it again... Considering the Av was less than 40K, with the exception of the cabin air filter it would not have cost more than $200 to include the other features. Even with the filter, maybe $500 (I doubt it would even be that much).

    I went to buy carbon cabin filters, they told me there was no listing, and upon inspection there of course is no cabin filter.

    Well, since it appears no one knows does anyone know the part number for the shale version and where I might be able to order it online? I'll order one and let others know.

    Wait a minute. Are you telling me the 02 escalades had a cabin air filter system and the 03's don't?

    Yea I remember reading they had done this on the Avalanche, Tahoe, Suburban, etc in an effort to step back from the features. Add to that the hood lamp....


    I ordered the console, $260, just a little pricey for a console lid. If it fits/works I will post the part number(s).

    02's also have a better looking exhaust tip....03' and 04's just have an ordinary exhaust pipe.

    And of course you can't order just the tip, I tried. Found another one today, the lights on the visor vanity mirrors are just on or off. The 02 had a slider so you could lower the light level. Even so, I still love this truck, such an improvement over the Avalanche. (I hope I don't sound bitter!)

    You don't sound bitter, it's just that we must accept the 02' Escalade as a better Escalade

    Ok, so the part came in... For $260 all you get is the standard 2003 lid (even thought the parts catalog showed the 2002 parts. A call to the head office and the return of the correct part numbers came with a new price... $685, for a cover...Now I see why the cut this out for 2003. My next action is to start looking in junkyards.

    Unless someone with a 2002 tan Escalade wants to ship me theirs!!

    And to me, believe it or not... this makes up for all the others, maybe twice over. No 50 plus thousand dollar vehicle should be without these.
