How do I take off old chrome bumper trim and install the new one.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Cadillac?

2011 Escalade ESV

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Escalade ESV yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing. Just don’t want to break anything. I have the new chrome piece waiting to install

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That’s it.

Are you referring to the lower grille?

Ask Your Own Cadillac Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Back rear bumper.
Cadillac Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 3 months ago

Thanks, ***** ***** a few minutes to look into this. Does new trim have bolts to bolt into place or does it just stick on?

Ask Your Own Cadillac Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Just sticks in
Cadillac Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 3 months ago

And when I say stick, I'm referring to adhesive?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I believe it clicks in
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No adhesive came with new part. There’s a piece broke off in the corner. No adhesive.
Cadillac Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 3 months ago

I'm not able to find any information on this, I'll open question up to see if someone else can help. I think looking at new piece and trying to figre it out like that is going to be your best option.

The chrome piece is attached to the black plastic flap that lays down on top of the bumper.

Does it resemble this?

Ask Your Own Cadillac Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
the chrome piece fits onto the edge.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
It’s the length of the bumper.
Cadillac Mechanic: Jerry Newton, Cadillac Technician replied 3 months ago

OK. Service manual doesn't show this piece, but the parts catalog does. It appears to have a nut type fastener that goes on each end, is there a plastic stud sticking out on each end that inserts into the step pad?

Ask Your Own Cadillac Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
When I lift the pad a little bit and look inside, O can see it.
Cadillac Mechanic: Jerry Newton, Cadillac Technician replied 3 months ago

OK. Retain those fasteners when you remove them, and install them onto the new piece. It does not show any adhesive or anything like that on this piece, it appears to primarily snap into place, with these two nut type fasteners securing it on each end.

Actually, looking more closely at that drawing, it is just a push in retainer, not a nut type retainer, so swap these push clips onto the new chrome piece, and the whole thing just snaps in and stays there.

How do I take it off without braking anything? That’s my biggest concern.
Cadillac Mechanic: Jerry Newton, Cadillac Technician replied 3 months ago

Are you worried about breaking the old piece of trim? That's probably the only thing at risk of breaking, and if you're replacing it anyway, it doesn't matter. The bumper cover should be just fine.

Ask Your Own Cadillac Question
Cadillac Mechanic: Jerry Newton, Cadillac Technician replied 3 months ago

I had a 2011 Tahoe in the shop today and got a look at the same trim piece on that rear bumper. Looks to me like it will snap right out of there, and the new one will snap right in.
