2011 Cadillac Escalade Windshield Replacement in Roseville, CA

2011 Cadillac Escalade Windshield Replacement

Three windshield replacement options.Cadillac Escalade Windshield Replacement Roseville, CA

  1. DW1658 (Solar, 3VF)
  2. DW1659 (Slr, 3VF, Rain Sensor)
  3. DW1883 (Slr, w/ 3rd VF, Acoustic Interlayer)

Most Escalades use part number DW1883 if there in no rain sensor on the windshield. This is good but will cost you a little more money. You will find that part# DW1658 will work just fine and save you around $100.00 but will give you a little more wind noise.

What to look for in pricing:

I have see time and time again you are sold a Acoustic Interlayer Windshield part DW1883 but get part number DW1658.You are not getting what you have payed for. Also if you are using your insurance company to pay for the replacement ask for the acoustic windshield. They often look for the cheep way out. So always look on the windshield before it is installed to see what part number it is.

Upgrade Your Windshield?This is a photo of a Escalade with a blue band at the top of the windshield

This is the time to take a look to see if you have a blue shade band at the top of your windshield. Most Cadillac Escalade do but there were some made with out the shade. Take a look at both photos. They are a before and after a windshield replacement on this Cadillac Escalade. You will see up buy the sun visors that this makes a difference. I used part number DW1883 GBY for this Escalade. The GBY stands for green glass with a blue tint at the top. The Y is for the molding that is on the windshield.
