What is your build date? I think that will be the difference in our cars. If my theory proves true, yours will be sometime before May.
Didn't you pay like $120 for yours? Mine was only $40 US. I don't know what the exchange rate is like...
Like I said, I like the store, the prices are usually much better, they have a large warehouse/store in town, and for the most part the staff is reasonably intelligent. I have found them to be the best in my area based on my personal experience with other makes and models of cars over the past 25 years that I have been working on my own vehicles. Getting the wrong part isn't always the fault of the store or parts clerk. Sometimes they are numbered wrong at the point of manufacture, and as is probably the case in my... case Pontiac, in their infinite wisdom saw fit to change heater core styles in the middle of the model year and didn't bother to tell anyone. Or maybe they just ran out of 1990s toward the end and started using 1991s because that was what they had laying there handy. At least the SOB doesn't leak anymore. Now we're having short-sleeve weather
