That one'* not very complete. Mine also includes flares (3), a sealed-beam spotlight, a little bag with air-mattress and basketball inflator needles, a plastic rain poncho and plastic instruction card (cracked in two ) As far as I know, they're all original factory pieces (except the flares, 'cause the originals got kind of rotten...)

at wreckers today, found accessory kit bag in Pontiac Transport, just bag, no hose or other accessories, so didn't buy. Bag from Transport was gray, with Pontiac logo, but bag appears to be glued and stitched to hard plastic cover plate, with 2 tabs at bottom and spring loaded catch at top. Looks like on the Transport, the inflator valve and switch is in a compartment at the left rear of the cargo area, and the accessory bag with plate snaps in place to cover the compartment.

So is this the same kit bag that a bonneville should have? From other posts, sounds like the bonneville kit bag is always black, has no hard plastic back, and is held by velcro onto the side of the trunk lining.

Right. (I own a Trans Sport too, only I don't have the inflator option, just a 12V outlet behind a plain cover at the left rear.)

No, it'* not a Bonneville kit. The Bonneville version is just as you describe: a (really nice) soft leather bag in dark gray, with stitched compartments inside and Velcro strips on the back. The flap is also held shut with Velcro.

Hey everyone I think I got what everyone is been asking for all this time.... But I have bad news though...
I did my research through the forums and nothing, nobody knows a GM Part #, so I took it to the dealers. This dealer of all of the ones I called told me that the price for the Accessory Rear Compartment Tool Kit is $397.00 and the GM Part # is: 25621889.

I had to tell you guys this morning because I been desperate for one, I replaced my air ride compressor the other day, and I wanted to see it work, inflating something,,, But I think the price is outrages,,, unbelievable...
Days prior to this I went to Wal-Mart and I got the hose fittings, but I don't have the adapter that will connect from the inflator valve to the hose, IT SUCKS!!
Well there it is if someone can find a better price let me know, I'm not going to pay $397.00 for a hose with a gage.

Thanx

I know the feeling...

Can you tell us which parts you are still missing? i.e. You're missing the entire hose with gauge, but have the other stuff, or what? Practically everything in that bag comes from a third-party supplier, after all: the plastic poncho, the flares, the spotlight (GE, I think mine is), etc.

You might also be able to schmooze the local junkyard into calling you the next time they get a Bonne in that hasn't been ransacked in the trunk yet. _Whatever_ they charge you for the kit is going to be better than $397.00....

Default Inflator Hose

The tire inflator kit was missing on my ‘96 SSEi as well. I was not even aware of the other stuff you guys have mentioned here until now.

I sell industrial maintenance supplies. At first, I merely made up a 15 or 20 ft. ¼” ID rubber air hose with ¼” male pipe thread on each end at work. Then, I went to Wal Mart and bought 2 tire chucks that lock on to the valve stem, keeping me from having to hold the thing to the tire for a long time while inflating.
Alas, it was too short, so I later added a 15 ft. polyurethane coiled hose assembly to the whole thing and now have plenty of hose length.

Yes, it takes a long time to inflate a low tire, but it beats having nothing and is a pretty cool idea. The whole thing is stored in the spare tire well and is out of the way and unseen unless needed.

One thing: a setup like this, with automatic shut-off valves on each end will RETAIN air pressure. Not such a dangerous thin at the low pressures generated by our little compressors, but it can make coiling the hose tricky and can cause premature wear on the fittings. I merely push on one stem or the other and let the air out of the hose.

Anyway, there is no way that I would pay GM big$$ for such a thing, and I only have about $30 to $35 in the whole thing- and I bet my setup is much more heavy-duty than the OEM hose, as it’* all industrial grade…
