Having some difficulty determining the OEM number for the driver door speaker for a 2003 DeVille base. Not a Bose. Any help? I find conflicting info on eBay and Rock Auto.

==========================
I like to use this site for OEM parts -
relatively easy to use - SOMETIMES -
http://www.tonkinonlineparts.com/
you should bookmark it -

here is the door speakers for your 03 BASE Deville -
http://www.tonkinonlineparts.com/showAssembly.aspx?ukey_assembly=807459&ukey_make=1085&ukey_model=15742&modelYear=2003&ukey_category=22650&ukey_trimLevel=26031

from that site -
it looks like two possibilities - depending on RPO code -

U57 = BOSE - so that isn't it -

UX8 = non-BOSE -

continuing -
it's easy to find the BOSE part number - U57 = #38 -
scroll down to #38 = ACDelco #25708241

hmmmmm -
no listing for #22 - the UX8 - DAMN -

if you scroll down into the shaded text - look at the part description -
you get to #22 - verify it is the correct speaker for the UX8 system -
IT IS - GREAT - ACDelco #9376561 - but - rather than a price -
it says PRODUCT NLA - No Longer Available -

well - the DEALER might not be able to get one -
but WE can -

I found it on amazon for $55.06 - with free shipping -

I find conflicting info on eBay and Rock Auto.

rockauto shows two CORRECT part numbers -
the # I discussed above - ACDelco 9376561 -
and ACDELCO 16198999 -

what's the difference? - besides $12 -

ACDelco 9376561 is the speaker WITH the new housing -



-----------------

ACDELCO 16198999 is the bare speaker - without housing -


oh - almost forgot -
$43.85 - with free shipping -

ever the factual dude, bass does it again. OTOH, nearly peed myself laughing at the train of thought, but then, at my age, bladder control is an issue. I think I'll order the raw speaker with free shipping.
