: Are AC/Delco parts available only at the dealer?

Can AC/Delco parts only be purchased thru a GM dealer? Also, are caddy parts only available thru a caddy dealer, or could another GM dealer get them?

GMpartsdirect is the online source, right? Is this a recommended option? I've got all my part numbers from that .pdf file recently linked on these boards.

Most GM dealers can get Caddy parts that are "dealer only" parts for you.
gmpartsdirect is one online source. Also try http://www.rockauto.com

You can get em elsewhere, many online shops:
I use www.gmpartsdirect.com
It has even better prices than RockAuto for the stuff I needed..... plus they gave me a free hat and shirt!

CarQuest is a national outlet for AC/Delco. Trivia.. AC stands for Albert Champion and Delco = Dayton Electric Lighting Company, makers of farm wind generators.
