2004-2006 Cadillac SRX Pro.Fit VSM Installation Instructions


Download Please Read Complete Instructions Before Installing This Pro.Fit VSM®. All instructions assume a drivers seat vantage point. Caution is advised when removing and reassembling wood or plastic parts of a dash. Applying unnecessary force or pressure may cause a piece to crack or break. Pro.Fit logo and part number will be right side up and readable when installed. STEP 1. Set the parking brake and put the gear shift into neutral. Open the ashtray door by pushing the top of the panel. See photo # 1. Remove the ashtray and locate the 7mm screw at the back of the ashtray cavity. Remove the 7mm screw. Insert a hook tool or dash trim removal tool (DM-40-22) behind the upper left corner of the climate control bezel. Pull or pry out gently to release a retainer clip. Work the hook tool around the bezel until all the clips are released. Let the bezel hang down. It is not necessary to disconnect any wiring. STEP 2. Place the VSM® against the dash pad as in Photo # 2. Mark the top and bottom of the VSM® and set it aside. Carefully file the small ridge, located between your marks, flush to the dash pad. See Photo # 3. The VSM® will sit firmly against the dash pad when finished. STEP 3. Once again, place the VSM® against the dash pad as in Photo # 2. Using the VSM® as a guide, mark the location of the two (2) pilot holes. Drill two (2) pilot holes at the marked location using a 5/64” drill bit and drill. These holes should be about 1/2” deep. Align the VSM® over the pilot holes, insert two (2) # 8 x 1/2” screws and tighten. Reassemble the dash in reverse order.
