: 03 CTS front dome light enclosure (No moon/sunroof)

08-09-12, 11:41 PM
I came out to my car one morning and found my dome light enclosure hanging by its wires. Looks like the heat got to what was left of the plastic clips and a rough bump shattered them. It wont clip back in I am using double sided sticky tape but it wont hold forever.

How much is a new one? Are there used ones available? I could swap the guts i just need the plastic part with the fresh clips.

can I get your VIN to make sure we get the right one?
you can PM or email it to me if you don't feel comfortable posting it in public
although i don't really think there's any harm in it some people are paranoid like that - which is ok

i'm pretty sure that it only comes as a full assembly
used ones should be available from the salvage yards
once i look up the correct one for you by your VIN you will know what to ask for at the salvage yards if you go that route

Thank you so much my VIN is: 1G6DM57N230111158

I wonder how many salvage yards will have a CTS lying around.

ok so there's a note in my catalog that says the new dome lamp assembly might not mount up to the mounting plate that's up above the headliner

if it doesn't then you'll have to order the new style mounting plate also

it looks like they made the change somewhere in 2005 so it's very likely that you'll have to order the other part also

here's the info:

dome asm
$232.42 - list price
$165.60 - your price

mount plate
$57.90 - list price
$41.25 - your price

looks like a used one might be your best chance at not having to take the headliner down
