Good evening,
I am wanting to replace my current broken 2006 Cadillac DTS rear driver side door with a used matching door.

My door had a sticker saying the manufacturing date is 02/06.

I found a replacement same color same year and model of car, but it's manufacturing date is 08/05. It's that an issue?

Should not be. The "model year" runs from about July to June, so a "2006" could have been built any time between July 2005 to June 2006. The actual build date is on the driver's door edge sticker.

Your build date makes the car a "late" 2006 vehicle.

Here we are in the end of April 2021 and already seeing ads for the "2022" models.

Save the receipt in the glove box for any issues though there shouldn't be.

If I'm not mistaken, any door from a 2000 up to 2006 deville or dts will fit

Thread moved from the '04-07 CTS-V forum to the DTS forum and merged with your previous thread about this topic. Hopefully your fellow DTS owners can help you out!

Do you mean the entire door or just the inside door panel assembly? The main screw holding the latter on is behind the plastic piece behind the chrome inside door latch. There are youtube videos for that. There are generic entire door removal videos, too. It probably takes extra people to hold the door up to bolt it back on.
