Default Block heater

Would anyone have the part number for the block heater? Mine died and winter is setting in early this year.

according to the Brochure they are "Available" from the factroy but not listed as a factory option and it is listed in the RPO codes as K05 - heater engine block....this would mean there is a listing at the dealer for it

I checked alldata which is usually pretty good with part numbers, but they don't have it listed. Just instructions on how to change it.

All interesting responses. I ordered the car with the block heater(since I knew my wife would claim the one open spot in the garage). It wouldn't make much sense for the dealer to have to drain the coolant in order to install the heater but then, with GM who knows.
I think I'll try the local auto parts store to see if they have a listing.

The Block heater would be located in a freeze plug hole. If you have no block heater and would like to install one, you would have to pull the center front. Most parts shops have them, no more than a couple bucks. Just dont forget to fill up and purge the antifreeze.
