: Need Parts

05-08-11, 10:42 AM
greetings, I'm new to the site but not new to cars. I own a small repair shop in cleveland ohio.
I have a '98 Catera, love the car, hate finding parts for her.

She has 98k on her, no rust, great shape, I'll post pics later.

Recently a stay pin on the e-brake let go. I tore down the rear disk brake system to find my backing plates rusted out. I called every parts store in town and finally the few GM dealers left in town to no avail. Part is listed as discontinued. Also the 4 bolts that hold the backing plate and bearing housing...mine are so badly rusted I can't really tell....are they star drive? Any clue where I can get original bolts for there?
I read somewhere a while back that some parts swap from the G8 and GTO to the catera. Any ideas? I would also need the E-brake shoes, hardware, and adjusters.

On a small "no-priority" list. I am also looking for the center console cup holder. And a coin holder that sits in the drivers door.

Thanks for any help.

Southern junk yards are the best for parts. A lot of these Crapteras were sold in Florida.
