Hi all. This is my first post here. I wasn't sure whether I should have posted in the Tech Info forum or here. I've been searching for a part number for my 1989 Pontiac Bonneville SSE.
Disclaimer: It'* a long story where I whine too much so if you don't want to read it jump down to the blah-blah-blah smiley.
It all started about a month, if not more, ago. I had taken my car to a tire center to have a leak fixed on one of the back wheels. Now, not only did they not really fix the leak, as you'll find out from the rest of the story, and just try to sell me new tires, they also either stole or simply forgot to replace from where they removed it my lug nut key. Well, I, of course, didn't realize the key had been missing until I needed it, which was last night at three in the morning in below 20-degree weather. Having everything needed except for the key to replace the tire, which had literally torn to shreds, I settled for a tow truck. The tow truck guy knew what he was doing but nearly ripped the back bumper off because it'* so low to the ground. To say the least, I was annoyed with the tire center. I called them next day. They said the most they could do is if I bring in the car get the nut off.
Therefore, that is why I'm looking for the part number. I called a Pontiac dealer in the area who may be able to order a replacement but they have two candidates. They said I can come in, look at the pictures for both, and decide on which to order, but I bet they're going to look exactly alike. I'm hoping with the part number I'll be able to better my chances.
My fiance insists on simply buying a different car but I like my Bonneville, too many good and bad memories to just let it go.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
