Default Source(*) of parts for '96 SSEi

Looking for recommendations for source(*) of parts for '96 SSEi...

Things I know I need:
A/C compressor; what else needs done when the A/C compressor dies?
Interior door moulding for drivers door (part that seals when door closes)
Full carpet (has gotten wet due to above moulding/weatherstripping problem)
I would love to find a new set of tan SSEi floor mats

Also, recommendations (locally, SE PA) for re-doing the leather on d.seat.


Any / all help GREATLY appreciated!

John

Try www.car-part.com for the AC compressor. As for anything else, you will need to pick up a R-134A coolant kit to recharge the AC -$35 at Wal-Mart.
As for the rubber seal for the door you might have to wait for Will or one of the other boys with the magic book (GM part #'*) and then take that part # over to www.gmpartsdirect.com to save up to 60% off dealer price.
And as for the carpet, your best bet is to find a 1996-newer in a salvage yard (will have to be 1996-1999 due to changing to a different hue of tan from the 1992-1995) or else check in at an upholstery shop.
Good luck, and welcome to the club.

Default AWESOME ... Thanks for the info!

I will take a look into the sites.

Also considering a '97 SSEi with ~71,0000 for $9K
or
'01 (supercharged ... SSEi or SLE?) for $18K

Anyway I go, the SSEi is/has been a FANTASTIC vehicle!
