    pillar cloth loosening...anyone experience this/have a fix?

    Hey all, so I noticed that the cloth around my A-pillar is starting to bubble/come loose. I don't really notice it much while driving, but my passengers have which in my opinion makes it even worst. Anyone experience this and/or have a fix for it?? Any insight is appreciated. Thanks!

    That's always Been a problem with caddy. Every Cadillac my family has owned since the 60s the headliner sagged. That was always a problem plus the dash cracking.......

    Dang mine has that problem too...but only on the passenger side around the BOSE tweeter. And ofcourse the dash pad cracks (1 on driver side, 2 on passenger).

    Mine has the problem really bad on both sides, but I think it happened after I tinted my windshield. So maybe the spray they used to lubricate the tint aided to the issue.

    Yep happening on mine. I'm planning on picking up some spray adhesive and trying to secure it that way. I'll see how it goes, I imagine that will be a viable solution

    Be thankful your Escalade isn't catching on fire. Yikes! I can deal with pillar cloth sagging

    Had same problem on my 2007 Escalade notice it would smooth out on very hot days. I just left it alone and traded truck in for a newer model. LOL

    I'm sure you could buy new A-pillars online or at the dealer for cheap. I've never had any luck re-glueing any head-liner type of material, without issues again.

    I also like the idea, of taking them to an upholstery shop and get them redone, maybe in a suede type of material?
