Re: 05 SRX oil change gone bad
One source shows the cap as GM part number 12583470. Retails for around $50. Perhaps Chris @ Rippy can verify the p/n and availability. Rippy Cadillac is listed on one of the banners on the right side. I think Chris is in the parts department and could probably expedite getting you one.
There's been reports on this forum of others having a hard time getting this cap off. However you're the first I've seen to report actually breaking one! But things happen. When replaced retorque to 18 ft-lbs. Should be obvious but check in the cavity to make sure all metal fragments are removed.....

Wow, that is nuts. Looks like someone used an impact gun set at 150 ft-lb to crank that sucker down. At least it is a relatively easy part to access and replace. It could have been worse and been a stripped drain plug!
