  2. Packing Material in the trunk

    Cadillac XLR Forum 2004-2009
    Just a note to all those XLR owners. When I took delivery on mine, the salesman was going over the operation of the vehicle with me. Given the fact that I bought it off the showroom, the top was down. When he tried to get it to go up; it wouldn't budge. Being late, all the service personel had...
  3. rear windows down = broken interior

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I had all my windows down during some high-speed driving, and the force of the air broke the interior pieces on the inside of the C pillars - both sides. Has this happened to anyone else? --Greg

  7. Solving a mysterious clunk

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    So I have this outrageous clunk (not parade clunk, etc.) coming from the rear of the V. It sounds like the passenger rear - especially when hitting sharp transitions (potholes) with that wheel. It is ALWAYS there with any transition at slow speeds (like left hand turn into a driveway, over a...

  9. 05srxv8

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    I plan to change my oil in my V8AWDSRX. Any pointers I should be aware of? Where's the filter? Is it spin on or canister like the V6? What's the size of the drain plug nut? Does the plug have a replaceable washer like some european cars have? Moble 1 still the recommended oil? etc.

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    Well, Now it's snow time around most of the country. I've never used chains or cables on my Esclade. I was always told that since my Lade is AWD that I wouldn't need them. However I asked a Trooper and he said even with AWD that chains/cables might be needed in some parts as the snow is really...

When the door was reopened and the paper repositioned in either direction it...
