  1. I AM LOOKING FOR ANY AND ALL DEALER TSBs' FOR A 1997 RIVIERA. I HAVE BEEN ON THE NHTSA WEBSITE BUT I CANNOT AFFORD TO PAY WHAT THEY CHARGE. ANYONE HAVE COPIES OR KNOW WHERE I CAN BUY OR DOWN LOAD THEM CHEAPER? THANKS.
  2. YOU SEEM TO KNOW ALOT ABOUT THESE CARS. ANY IDEA HOW I WOULD FIND THE DEALER BULLETINS? OR HOW MANY OF THEM THERE ARE FOR A PARTICULAR MODEL? SOME ONE TOLD ME THEY MAY BE CALLED SERVICE BULLETINS? THANKS FOR ANY HELP. PATRICK
  3. THANKS FOR THE INFO. I DID BUY A SET OFF EBAY FOR $70.00 TOTAL. I THOUGHT IT WAS A PRETTY FAIR PRICE. I SHOULD HAVE THEM NEXT WEEK SOMETIME. DID YOU SEE THE AUCTION FOR A COMPLETE 1998 BUICK RIVIERA ENGINE IN PA.? I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT SOLD FOR ONLY $200.00!!! THANKS AGAIN FOR THE HELP. I WILL BE A REGULAR ON HERE. PATRICK
  4. I AM LOOKING FOR A FACTORY SERVICE MANUAL FOR MY 1998 RIVIERA. I HAVE SEEN THAT THE SET I NEED IS AVAILABLE ONLINE. BUT I DON'T NEED A LIKE NEW SET. LOOKING FOR A USABLE CLEAN SET IN FAIR TO GOOD CONDITION. EVERYTHING I HAVE FOUND IS $90.00 OR MORE. ANYONE KNOW OF A MORE REASONABLE SOURCE? THANKS. PATRICK
  5. THE AFTER MARKET PARTS HOUSE HAS A NEW UNIVERSAL UNIT FOR $48 THAT THEY SAY I WOULD HAVE TO MAKE FIT. I THINK THAT MEANS MAKING BRACKETS AND SPLICING WIRES. I ALSO CALLED THE DEALER AND WAS TOLD THEY DON'T SELL PARTS TO REPAIR THESE ANYMORE. THEY WANT $205 FOR A NEW UNIT. I WILL CALL BACK AND ASK ABOUT THE PART NUMBER YOU HAVE GIVEN ME THOUGH. WHO IS BARNEY? IF HE IS RELIABLE AND REASONABLE I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN CONTACTING HIM ABOUT A REBUILD OR SWAP. THANK YOU FOR ANY MORE HELP OR INFO YOU CAN GIVE
  6. I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR OTHER MISCELLANEOUS PARTS THAT I HAVE NOT POSTED FOR ON HERE AND I WAS ALREADY BEGINNING TO SEE EXACTLY WHAT YOU MEAN. THANKS FOR THE REPLY. PATRICK
  7. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE INFO. IT LOOKS LIKE I WILL BE TRYING TO FIND AN ENTIRE UNIT TO INSTALL. I WILL CALL THE DEALER AND DO AS YOU ADVISE. HOPEFULLY IT WILL NOT BE AS BAD AS IT SEEMS. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR TAKING THE TIME TO RESPOND. PATRICK
  8. THE POWER ANTENNA MOTOR ON MY 98 RIV RUNS BUT DOES NOT ACTUATE THE ANTENNA ITSELF. IS IT WORTH TRYING TO FIX? IS THERE A KIT FOR THIS? IS IT A COMMON PROBLEM? ANY SUGGESTIONS? THANX.
  9. THANK YOU FOR THE INFO BUT I AM LOOKING FOR ONLY THE KNOB. I DO APPRECIATE THE THOUGHT. PATRICK
  10. I HAVE A 1998 RIVIERA I BOUGHT A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO. I AM LOOKING FOR A SOURCE FOR A SET OF FLOOR MATS ( INTERIOR IS TAN ). ALSO NEED A HEADLIGHT SWITCH KNOB. I AM WORKING ON JUST A COUPLE OF THINGS AT A TIME. I WILL BE ON A COUPLE OF TIMES A WEEK AS I PROGRESS. I HOPE TO BE ABLE TO RESTORE THIS CAR TO NEAR PERFECT CONDITION. ANY TIPS OR HELP WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANX
