    Back up lights plastic cover fell off. Have tried for years to find a replacement, other than buying the whole reverse light unit for >$400, no luck so far. Caddy ought to be taken out and shot for this total eff up engineering, and terrible service followup.

    On the 2003's there is a plastic panel that covers the backup's about 1'X 3'...I guess it's common for these to just blow off. We just purchased the 03 CTS with only 41000 miles and had driven it for about 2 weeks when we noticed the panel was gone,exposing the backup lights. We choose to fix it right instead of trying to find a replacement at the salvage yard (since it seems to be design flaw because they about non exsistant). So we had it replaced with the metal more secure piece and after the painting etc (it is pearl white) the Bill was over a $1000. But won't fall off again!

  • We have lost our lense also. I see on Ebay a replacement for the bulbs that looks like a great solution to fixing a bad problem. They our covers that just covers each bulb. Looks great.
