Love junkyards.

I've seen cars in yards in apparently much better condition than cars on the street - but, of, there is one or more things wrong - bad differential, locked engine, excessive rust, or just an unsolvable electronics problem...

I need a passenger side fog lamp assembly. Can you flip me a quote for it?

Thanks!

There is a 95 NG900S with manual transmission in the local yard. If anyone is looking for parts, let me know.

Since I have not been here in a while, here is an update: the passenger side fog light is gone. The driver's side is still there but I still do not know how to take it out. I spent too much time trying to guesswork that it is time to get some help/enlightement. :cheesy: I did take the SID out but they want $25 for it; they are charging it as a digital cluster. :(

Also, how to take the door handles out? I took the door pannel out of the right front door (can show pictures), and removed the rod that goes to the latch, but it still does not want to walk out. And, how about the pannel between the tailights?

Do let me know so I can go there tomorrow and spend the entire morning in that car :eek:

Thanks for posting this...very kind of you.
I'm wanting both headlamp assemblies (the whole enchilada) and the right front marker/directional assembly.

Haven't found used ones locally.

I need a panel(air shield, LS), some clips(headlight) and some covers(wiper arm mounting nut)

cost at the dealer $20 or so, at the yard $5..
The air shield is probably $50 at the dealer, and I bet they never sell any..

But the shipping cost may add another $20:cheesy:

How many buttons on the SID? 2 or 4?
I am still clueless myself. Here is where I am at:

I assume you have to pop it from the bottom (right front handle in this picture) but I seem to be having issues with the side closer to the lock cylinder. I believe there is a rod that goes from the cylinder down to the lock itself,

But I have not figure out how to take it out yet. :(

About the SID, it actually has 3 buttons. Two that seem to be for the SID itself and a third one called "black pannel" or something like that.

I'll try to yank them for you next time the yard is opened. I learned from experience that they do not crush the oldest row first. I lost the opportunity to get a few parts because of that. :x

The LS air shield is rather large and ungainly, not too heavy, but, due to its location, suffer the ravages of the snow and dirt from the highway...

No pics, and I fear the shipping is prohibitive.

Our closest pick it yourself yard is in Hazelton, about two hours away..

I could make this panel, if I knew where to source some black poly plastic.... maybe an old trash can ????

I took the side markers ($8/each) from that car. When I yanked one of the headlights ($25), I noticed the silver coating in the reflector was gone, leaving a yellow plastic looking surface behind it. If you want them I will yank them, but I would ask how bad are yours. Unless you have the means of recoating the reflector I personally do not think they worth it.

I am in need of the passenger front headlight assembly, I just actually need the internal adjusters and springs and such, as mine are broke allowing the adjustment to move everytime I shift. I would not ned the reflector material. How much do you think it might cost?Craig

Do you think they are easily separated from the reflector? If so I may try to get it today (I am rather sick but it is not raining today) after I take care of laundry. Otherwise, the entire assembly is $25.
