Default Trunk lid lamp question

Hello -

I need a new LH trunk lid lamp assembly for my '94 SSE. I found this on ebay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BONNE...3286.m20.l1116

Although listed as being for a '93, it sure looks identical to the one on my '94.

I need to get it replaced asap, as I broke it a weeek or 2 ago and now it'* letting water into my trunk.

Can anyone comment on the compatibility of this item with a '94?

Thanks
Matt

Yeah, it seemed a bit high to me, but mostly for the shipping. $14 for a taillight? What'* it weigh... 250 lbs or something? But that'* the game they play. Anyway when I opened my trunk yesterday, and saw all the water dripping from the broken lamp, I decided to expedite things and not go salvage yard hunting, although I did google some. I did find one other one for I think $14, but I'm an impulse buyer.

Ya a yard would have been alot cheaper and I didnt think about the shipping Ebay'ers always inflate ridiculously. I paid $75 for one for my Dodge dually last summer, couldnt find one in a yard. Least you got a nice one. Bonne'* arent the most common finds these days. The price of iron has the yards stripping their inventorys. Had a guy come by in May and give me $200 for an old Ford 4x4 collecting rust

Wow... I heard a story that people are going around stealing cat. converters to sell to the scrap man. I guess if they steal light poles and live copper wire, it'* not too unbelievable.

Also people are coming up with some pretty clever ways to steal gas from cars and stations....

The next years are going to be very interesting I think.

But now I've gone off topic. Off to the lounge!
