    Cadillac XLR

    2005 Light Platinium Silver XLR

    Default Trunk Rubber Cone

    While working on Roxy this weekend I notice the passengers side rubber cone, on the trunk lid, was soft and gooey. I know it was mentioned on here before about this part. Does anyone know the parts name, number or where it can be purchased? Thanks in advance!

    GM parts diagrams are terrible. I think this might be what you're looking for

    Dan,

    rexster314 is correct on the part. Can get them at any GM parts online store or your dealer. Not expensive at all. If you notice, there is a nut above it that is not part of the part, but is used for adjustment. Make sure you put them back the same, as this is the up and down adjustment for your decklid. The entire bumper is threaded and quite long. If the old one is soft and squishy, wrap a rag or paper towel around it. They are messy and quite a problem to clean up if it drops into the carpet in the trunk!

    Great, Thanks Cubby
    I found them on GM parts last night and ordered 3 at 3.88 ea. + Shipping around $21
    You say they adjust the trunk lid, so if the center of the lid is bottoming out on the bumper I should adjust them out a little and that would stop that from hitting the bumper?

    they should adjust the top of the deck lid even with the top of the taillights. Some of the bumpers hit the deck lid In the middle due to failure of the retainer strip they snap into. ++ on the gloves or rag as the rubber is some of the messiest and is almost as hard to clean up as uncured windshield sealer.

    I'm gonna jump into this thread with the same issue. I replaced both of these a few years ago, but unfortunately I only ordered two units. Those have now become spongy and I'd like to order four for now and the future. A half dozen attempts have taken my payment only to refund later due to lack of parts to satisfy the order. It's only been 6 months or so since 05 Grand Daddy made his request, but I can't seem to find any now.

    There has been a strike recently, but don't think this is affecting the parts supply, only the delivery. Could you provide the specific parts source you had success with, please? There are at least a dozen or so similar sources. Thanks much!

    well one more part gone the way of the dodo bird. I called to double check. Number is still in the catalogue but when ordered it was kicked out as discontinued. None at any dealers across the USA. so we will have to find a possible replacement part. Thanks GM for all your non support

    My local dealer said last week that 'maybe a few more days now that the strike has ended'.... He did not indicate any out-of-stock or 'discontinued' messages associated with the order. I guess I'll wait a few more days and check again.... I have one very swishy and one that's melted away completely...

    el lI was told by gm they have them in stock. ordered 6 from 3 dealers and 2 have sent my money back saying no longer available so just shows how screwed up thing are there. Waiting on the other dealer who said they will be here next Friday No bigey on this as I found another application that is available and seems to fit and work fine.

    Could you share where they showed up, please? I was able to place orders at 4 different “GM Parts...” type places & neither had stock. They’ll grab the $ immediately... a couple emailed me advising they were crediting back to my card. The other two I had to contact to determine actual availability & then receive the credit when they realized they didn’t have any.

    I cleaned off what was left of the goo on both of mine. Hoping the center latch will continue to hold tight. Thanks.
