I own a a 1993 pontiac grand prix that my father gave me. Lately I am having problems finding parts, such as a window regulator for my drivers side window. Is there any way to locate this part without costing an arm and leg? I do not have much money to spend on this car, since I am hoping to purchase a new car in the future. thanks sue

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Sue, Before you going putting parts into your Grand Prix, I suggest you have a professional auto technician look the vehicle over to make sure it is in solid condition and warrants putting work into it to keep driving. Depending on the part, you may be able to purchase a used one. Here are a list of websites that sell used parts: www.junkyarddog.com www.partrequest.com www.usedpartscentral.com www.autosalvageyards.com

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Sue, You can contact local salvage yards, that may be the cheapest way to go for now, make sure you have your VIN ready and request an availability report on the regulator you are looking for. AJ Pierce

Suzanne Grego, Technician at City of Philadelphia Fleet Management Sue, You may be able to find parts for your vehicle at a junkyard. Check out the yellow pages and make some phone calls. If they do have a similar vehicle, make sure you ask if you have to pull your own part. Some junkyards have you bring tools and remove what you need yourself. You could also probably search the internet for specific auto parts. Suzanne
