  2. 18X9 in the front would be an easy fix for fitment issues. And 245/45's would have the same rolling diameter as the 275/40's in the back. But this has never been about what's easy. -LOL. 18X9.5 wheels and 255MM wide tires have always been my minimums for this build. 18x10 wheels with 275-285MM wide tires have always been my goals.
  3. I had them take many pictures of the repair job. I want to document everything. But I'm waiting on the pictures. It's the same repair done by dealerships. They bought all of the tooling from one that went out of business 15 years ago. Course thread inserts and over-sized bolts. Also the improved gasket set to correct the factory defective ones. $2400 for the job and it includes a new water pump. I had some extra work done. More on that when I get pictures.
  4. Does anyone know of any Front Subframe mount kits for the E/K platform. A kit that has the 2 bushings, bolt, retainer, etc... I would like to replace them on one if not both of my 97 Caddys. I am also looking for them for a 2001 Deville. Owner said subframe is dropping through mounts. Gotta love NY
  5. Hi all. I have to service the brakes on both of my 97 Caddys and The only part I dread is removing the wheel center caps. I have yet to find a tool that works well in removing them. I have my plastic trim tools but these caps are so seamless that it is nearly impossible to get anything behind them. Any tips would be much appreciated

    OT....interesting GM barn find

    A shame that it was kept for 30 years, but certainly a 'survivor'. And if it sells for $80K+ then I suppose a nice gain over the $15K MSRP in 1987.

    Real rubber is one of the few things that expands as it gets colder. I don't know if neoprene or whatever they use in the air bags has that unusual property or not.

    96 Deville Blower Motor.

    95-99 IIRC The 3 part one I have seen hit or miss. Up to around 97. That is the one my 96 had. It sure seemed to be original on mine. Both of my 97s have the 1 part motor.

    They were a very common issue in that era. Not just Cadillacs, but olds, buick, and Chevy. Pontiac didnt really have the issue because they had their own style Steering wheel and airbag. There was a recall at one point for the issue and The airbags were being replaced for it but of course none of mine. I think it is worse in cold states as the rubber gets stiff and applies pressure to the pads below causing the issue

    96 Deville Blower Motor.

    I've had the car for 13 years and never replaced it while I had it. I got it when it was 9YO. Don't know if it's ever been replaced in the first 9 years so don't know if the one in there is the original really. Anyway to tell? I have such a bad temper and and very little patience so I'm looking for the easiest way to do this. Was gonna hit the bone yards this week to see if I can find one. What other years or cars can I get one from? Maybe I'll get lucky and find a car with no engine.. 😀

    I've known a lot of airbags that had a short in the fuse box, but this is the first time I've heard of one on the steering wheel of a Cadillac.

    96 Deville Blower Motor.

    sometimes the cage may get fractured either in shipping or during install, Then later on it will break or split as it cycles

    96 Deville Blower Motor.

    It can come out. Likely by breaking the cage. I bet that is what happened on the install. That is why it would vibrate
  26. 04-09. SRX is not owner programsble but the good news is that a decent locksmith with mobile seevice can do it on the cheap. My car took a special key (PK3+) symbol stamped on it. I got my car with a single key and no fobs ! Bought used factory fobs on ebay, and three factory GM keys with transponders in them. $65 bucks to recode and came to the house !
  27. I have an 04 with AWD but the 4.6 w/ 160,xxx miles. It is great in the snow in Ohio although I live in FL. I do have a Stabilitrak warning light on that I have yet to troubleshoot. Hoping its just new sensors at the wheel(s). If you plan on doing your own work, it is complicated and a Tech 2 with CANdi module would be cats meow but they are over 2k used ! Its also pretty tight around the engine and simple maintenance tasks that are easy on some cars are totally unneccessarily labor intensive. Hope you pick a good one and stay away from one that is dripping fluids under the motor unless you can get it up on a lift and see an obvious simple leak like hose connection.

    96 Deville Blower Motor.

    OK, so I gotta ask you another dumb question. What if the one I have is 1 piece? Can it be forced out without having to tilt the motor? I can always probably break it out.
