    Parts are NOT going to all of sudden dry-up overnight, or 9 weeks for that matter. The trucks are assembled there, but it's more likely than not that the lights are made by a vendor under contract somewhere else, and unless they're closing too I wouldn't worry about it...

    Stop making the truck for nine weeks and might drop the lights due to cost. The sky is falling.

    Re: 2009 Cadillac Escalade Platinum EDITION HEADLIGHTS

    First of all, Hello to all.

    I am a newbie to this site and recently got a good deal on an 08 Escalade EXT. I want to upgrade my HID headlamps from HID's to LED's but still have a few questions regarding the matter. I have read most if not all the posts on this site but all my questions have not been answered.

    1) In detail can someone explain to me how to remove the HID headlights without breaking anything, either with pics or videos? I have searched everywhere but the explanation is not detailed enough.

    2) I explained to my local dealer what it was that I was doing and he explained to me that it is very similar to plug and play where nothing except the new headlight is needed. However, I have seen on this site that another pigtail is needed between what is on the car going to the headlamp. I need clarification on this as I don't want to pull out the headlamp only to find out that I need something else. Maybe a GM part number for this other harness would help.

    3) Do the new assemblies need to be aimed properly so that they don't blind oncoming drivers or is that some jig that stays with the vehicle?

    Any and all feedback are welcome.

    Question Re: 2009 Cadillac Escalade Platinum EDITION HEADLIGHTS

    I am looking at replacing the front of my 2008 EXT with a 2009 Platinum edition front end (grills, bumper, LED lights, etc) and my local dealer would like to know the name of any dealer who has made this conversion so they can discuss it with them and give me a more accurate estimate to do the conversion. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Re: 2009 Cadillac Escalade Platinum EDITION HEADLIGHTS

    I have the number of the guy I bought the lights and bumper from.

    214-556-7733

    I'm sure he can help you out.

    Question Re: 2009 Cadillac Escalade Platinum EDITION HEADLIGHTS

    Thanks for the information. I talked to him this afternoon after I had gotten the parts lists from a Cadillac dealer showing all the different parts required. The cost I got from dealer was about $3900 for parts alone. According to what I have found out from him there is also a slight difference in the wheel well plastics and the cover that goes over the radiator area and that was not included in the dealer list. Apparantly it is an easy install and takes only a couple of hours being really careful... Unfortunately (or Fortunately because I like it) my ext is Sonoma red and the bumper area would have to be repainted first. Am going down to the local dealer tomorrow and inquire about painting. No longer worried about install issues. If I get a whole clip I wounder what I could sell my standard 2008 EXT front clip and headlights for to the Avalanche guys. Any guesses.

    25999509 headlamp list 1592.13
    25999510 headlamp list 1592.13
    25957701 grill list 536.00
    25957702 grill list 251.55
    25975452 fascia list 495.75
    25981130 molding list 123.53
    15937883 harness list 137.95
    15907627 deflector list 98.52
    15907623 support list 83.66
    15907625 filler list 49.85
    15907626 filler list 49.85

    not included but different:
    Upper radiator support/cover UNK
    left and right wheel well plastics was told less than 30 apiece

    The rest comes from the regular front but I suspect the cad emblem may not be on the grill and the front license hold is different as well. The deflector above (I think) is the longer chrome piece for the hood. I am sure someone could figure out a way to get a break off list price. I am under unique conditions because my selling dealership banged my front bumper before he sold it to me, did a poor repair job, and did not disclose it. I have the additional problem of paint being cut/chipped around ALL the door window frames and it is being called a factory issue requiring the doors to be repainted under warranty....Not really happy about all this and trying to find a way to compensate for my time and grief....Both dealer and GM issues add up to repainting of eight panels...IMHO don't think it will ever match up right particularly in the long run. Trying to get them to repaint or replace whole truck but meeting finger pointing and no red replacement vehicle in the system so am looking at other alternatives that might make me less irate.

    Re: 2009 Cadillac Escalade Platinum EDITION HEADLIGHTS

    The harness number is in my previous post...in the estimate I got from the dealer they list aligning of fog and headlights as labor and my understanding of the LED lights are they must be aligned carefully because each array has led aimed at a different part of the roadway ahead. Don't know the procedure. Supposedly the harness plugs into the regular harness somewhere in the left fender area. Sorry I can't be more helpful. The lights should just bolt in but will not work without harness or hand wiring. Most of those other parts are to accommodate the Platinum front and grills.

    Question Re: 2009 Cadillac Escalade Platinum EDITION HEADLIGHTS

    Hunglowe, It appears I cannot pm you. What do you want for the grills and do you have the matching hood chrome?
