  2. Ultra-View Rattle

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    Hey guys- I did a search but came up with nothing relevant. We have an 06 SRX with an Ultra-View. It's really nice, but ours rattles when going down most roads. We took it into the dealer and they said that they lubbed the track and that it should have fixed it. It now rattles more than...

  5. For those that have a passenger side interior rattle:

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Appearance Mods
    I had an occasional passenger side interior rattle, generally when I hit a bump, even slowly, that was a little tiring. I had the passenger front door open the other day when I was vacuuming and I observed that a collar, or rectangular plastic tube about 6" long or so guiding the passenger seat...

  7. Rear Passenger Window Loose Channel

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    Had a rattling sound that kept getting worse and when my son was riding in the back seat he pushed on the area where the air bag is on the rear pillar and the sound seemed to stop. I also had a problem with a "fog" on my windshield. I cleaned it 3 times with different glass cleaners and could...

    The 2010 Ford retirees meeting is going on this afternoon across the street from my office. They have it every year during the industry think-tank week which brings up all the brass from GM/Ford/Chrysler. They also bring in some models from the upcoming year - so I thought I'd share a few with...

  10. 2005 CTS Engine Problems - Timing Chain?

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Hey everyone, Everything was great with the CTS until I kicked over 70,000 miles a couple weeks ago. At that time (at least thats when it became MUCH louder and started affecting performance and/or driveability) I started getting this really horrible heavy rattling type noise from the front of...
  11. Noise from front right side of vehicle/chrome trim pieces coming off???

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    We purchased my SRX about a month ago. I was ecstatic with my new car, a reputable Cadillac. Until a couple of days after I drove it out of the dealer. It started with a loud noise as I drove over small bumps or made right turns. I could tell it was coming from the front passenger side of the...
  12. AC Compressor questions

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I had a rattling sound on my 2001 SLS with 106K miles and found out it was the AC compressor. My questions are, is it possible to have an idea how long it will last, is it better to leave the AC off, will I have any advance notice before it breaks the serpentine belt or is the rattling the...
  13. strange ventilation changes

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    I noticed three times now, when I transition from road to a bridge in New Jersey that has an inch or two change in elevation, the air conditioning will change the vent from upper to the feet. One time on the second elevation change, it did not change from feet to upper. I ended up turning off...
  14. FINALLY Lowered, but got questions...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    I finally lowered her with h&r, and I think with the spacer mod she looks damn good! I like the slightly raked look... I have let it sit a couple days then drove it around, it pumps up but not bad at all, it then settles back down to almost level when left a few days. As far as ride goes I love...
  15. Rear seat telegraph

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    Not a new option..I hope. My right rear folding seat has a rattle that sounds like a telegraph key sending a message when traveling a less than smooth road. My wife thought that it was the seat belt but that turned out not to be the case. After sitting in the back while it is messaging, she...

    I've got a 2003 CTS, 46,000 miles that has a dull rattling, noise coming from the left front of my car (under the hood). I've had the struts replaced but the noise is still there. It starts only after I've driven a few miles and then continues while I am moving either slow or fast. Very...
  17. Anyone with paint experience?

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Last year some old man hit my back bumper. I repaired it with some of the spray base coat and clear that can be ordered off the web. I sanded and buffed it. For the summer, it looked pretty good. The winter beat it up really bad and I need to repaint my bumper the correct way. I am going to...

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Hello everyone, this is my first post. Been reading for a while now, gotten plenty of useful information as well as some mods that I have done to my truck. Now I have a question that I cannot figure out myself. Is there a guide somewhere on this forum as to how to do the conversion to HID fog...

  20. Is it true ?

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    I have a 05 CTS about 2 years. Love the car. About 70K miles. Great luck. Building a home with a steep drive and need to get a AWD/4WD of some type and looked into the SRX as a natural transition...maybe a 06-07 low mile one. I read the Consumer Reports on this model and the ratings are...
