    Where can I find seat belt replacement parts?
    They're the plastic pieces that attach to the sides of the front seats to hold the seat belts away from your neck. Mine broke and I can't find replacements.

      Have your dealership do a portal check across United States. This checks all gm dealerships and warehouses. If its discontinued then you will have to check salvage yards.

      Best options would be eBay or dealership or salvage yard. A part like that is not very common. You likely will not find a new replacement. You should look for a quality used part. I would start by calling your local auto salvage yards. Or start looking online at national salvage yards and have it shipped to you.
      In my area.
      (LKQ Smart Parts) is an obvious choice. Check out their website or any other online salvage. Most salvage companies have websites with parts lookup.

    What part of my window do I need to fix?
    My window will go down normally but has trouble raising. It will go up half an inch every couple if minutes or so but that's it. It makes no strange noises and it follows the "track" perfectly, no weird twists or drops. Should I just replace the motor?

    The instrument cluster gauges have stopped working and all warning lights are on.
    This happens when the key is turned on, and there is power to this system. It happens with the engines running and when its not. Any ideas.

      This procedure requires the use of a wiper arm puller tool or equivalent and a pin or pop rivet for articulated wiper arms.

      Disconnect the washer hoses.
      Remove the nut cover from the wiper arm nut by twisting slightly with a 17mm socket. Try to gently pull the cover off. The cover may crack or break and need to be replaced.
      Loosen and remove the retaining nut from the wiper arm.
      Lift the wiper arm and insert a suitable pin or pop rivet completely through the two holes located next to the pivot of the arm, where applicable. A heavy duty battery terminal puller can be substituted to pull the wiper arm from the stud, in most cases.
      To install:
      Run and park the wiper motor.
      Install the wiper arm on the drive shaft.
      Install the nut on the drive shaft finger tight, then remove the pin, that was inserted near the pivot arm.

      It may be necessary to allow for some movement of the arm when the nut is being tightened. If the arm moves away from the desired alignment mark, loosen the nut and reposition the arm by moving the blade tip. Retighten the tip.

      If installing the driver's side wiper arm and blade, measure from the tip of blade to the bottom edge of the glass. This must be approximately 5.8 in. (147mm).
      If installing the passenger's side wiper arm and blade, measure from the tip of blade to the bottom edge of the glass. This must be approximately 1.3 in. (33mm).
      Tighten the wiper arm nut to 29.5 ft. lbs. (40 Nm).
      Install the nut cover and connect the washer hose.

      The first thing to check is fuses for the blower. The blower motor (the motor replaced in November) has to be tested and confirmed OK, this is easy to do and is always one of the first steps. The fuses that have to be confirmed good are HVAC CTRL (20 amp) and HVAC HI (30 amp) and if they are both good then the only thing left is the blower resistor which controls speeds 1 to 4 and a blower relay. The highest speed is fed power direct from the ignition switch and through a relay. The blower relay could be junk.

      Mechanical issue - very common. Try this as an inexpensive first step - lubricate the key itself with some dry graphite powder (small tube from any local hardware store) and insert a few times.

      Next step would be to replace the ignition lock cylinder with a new one. Cost is around $17.00 from any of these on-line sources; www.partsgeek.com, discountautoparts.com, www.rockauto.com - to list only a few.
