Don't do that; if you do, you'll have two doors with weak grab pulls instead of just one.

Thing is the driver'* door has lasted 3+ years of use since I purchased it without a hint of having a problem. If GM can't make up its mind as to what I'm supposed to put in there, I may have no other choice... What I can't understand is how they can just NOT have a listing for this component on a 5 year old vehicle... Or heck, for the '03, that'* only a 3 year old vehicle. The listings for any '00-'03 just have blank spots there, like they don't exist...

I think I'm going to attempt to order the ones for the '04-'05 unless anyone has any better ideas.

There'* a listing for it alright, it'* just that the parts guy can't find it. Do you have those green pins that hold the outside edge of the panel? Not only did the dealer not have enough of them, but they also wanted to charge me $4 a piece for them.

I went online and did a little bit of research and was able to find GM'* vendor for those pins. As it turned out, the vendor of those pins was a supplier to a fasterner store that I've gone to. I ended up ordering them through my fastener supplier for $1 each. They come in boxes of 10. I ordered a box of short pins and a box of long pins.

I still haven't found out yet who makes the center clips though.

Edit - I checked at GMPD also, and while I can't get the picture to fully load for the front, I think that you have the right part number. By the picture, you do for the rear.
You apparenlly missed this. Best that I can tell you have the right part number, and I was able to come up with the same number using 2000 as the year.

Thanks for the confirmation toasted! Both of those PNs show that they have been replaced by 15225228 on GMPD.com. I'm going to go ahead and order 2 of them tomorrow if I can, Monday if not. Either way, I'll have the passenger door off to see if someone has been in there messin' around as well.

Thanks for the help!

*EDIT* - and they are only ~$3 on GMPD.com, but at $10 *&h, NO THANKS. They're special order no matter where I get them from so I might as well get them from the local dealership at ~$5/ea. Not huge money, but I really don't like to **** it away, especially not near the holidays... I mean I have a house and a 18mo old son now. LOL

Yo, lighten up pal. Maybe I had a lapse in memory for a second. Don't be throwing stuff, you understand!

Yeah, people seem to forget that free information and advice is given here. Something you'd pay some good money for "out there". Don't let the faceless nature of the board cause you to treat someone with less respect than usual, or would you stand nose to nose to someone and ask "Did you even hear what I said 24 hours ago!"? You may end up getting the same type of respect, as in the volunteers may not want to help you out.

I'm thinking maybe (just maybe) you should pull the passenger panel to get a look at those clips so that you'll know they match up with the ones you've ordered. Remember: after you disconnect the pins around the edge, you want to pull STRAIGHT UP to unhook the panel from the center clips; NOT OUT.
