    Cadillac logo chrome piece loose on back of vehicle

    I just bought a 2010 Luxury edition escalade but I noticed the back cadillac chrome piece on the hatch is a little loose. Is the a way to tighten it? Or how do you remove it?

    There are 4 10mm bolts that hold it on, plus 2 snap clips on the top and 1 in the middle. To get it off you have to remove the plastic on the hatch. That piece breaks VERY easy, so you will bust it trying to get it off. You'll need to use some plastic weld or something like it to attach the bolts to the broken clips to put it back together

    All 3 in the pic are broken



    And here's a close up of the bolts and how they break

    Would this be covered under factory warranty?

    I don't want to chance breaking it. If not, what is the first step of removing it?

    I would certainly try to get it covered under warranty first. To remove it, you open the lift gate, remove the plastic on the liftgate, and there will be the 4 screw holes to remove the nuts with 10mm socket
