This is my first day here and got my first Bonny on Friday(donated by the father-in-law). It is a 2000 SE with 309,000 Kms, interior is in really good shape. Drives good for milage, body is a bit rough, hood has cancer, as well as door bottoms, and under gas cap door. But it will be fixed soon...other issues seem to be common ones for the car rear passenger window reg. Gas guage not working, station/clock display on radio shot, and air ride sensor on rear spring broken. Got the gas guage repair parts coming, body work starting soon, window reg. ASAP. Radio I know nothing about. This is not my first Pontiac in past I have had an 87 Sunbird, 95 Grand Am, 86 Firebird. I also currently have a 84 Fiero(parts car really) and my summer toy a 86 Fiero SE with a 3.8SC. Looking forward to fixing up the bonny, bringing it back to where it belongs.

Mike

:Welcome Mike!! You are deffinately in the right place for Bonneville'*. Post up some pics when you get a chance! As far as the radio goes. Inside behind the clock should be a bulb. My bulb burned out and I jsut replaced it. Everythings ok....good as new!

Mike, Please add your year and trim of your vehicle to your signature line. That way when you start asking questions in other areas of the forum, we all have a better idea on how to assist you. Click on "Quick Links" above, go down to "User Control Panel" and then click on "Edit your Signature" It'* pretty straight forward from there.

Welcome to the site. Don't sound like nothing major. Fix one thing and move on, sounds like your doing just that. We have most things covered here in tech info. Check the for sale area for any parts you may need.

It'* awesome to hear that the repairs are nothing major. Like Dan said fix one, move down the list. Do you have any pics so we can see your ride?

Hi Mike;

Welcome to the Bonneville Forum!

We can help you get those little things repaired and keep those little things from becoming ones.

Post up some photos of your ride when you get a chance. We like pictures!
