  1. As information Dorman will not work with existing switch. If you want to add another switch it is great. Trying to keep this car all original. Back in 1999 the replacement was the entire cushion or back. Now a good upholstery shop can open up the seat and slip a generic element or pick out a GM element and have it sewed in. I am learning more about heated seats than I need to know. Just want to get it fixed before Winter Thanks to all

  9. I have a 1999 Buick Riviera in my collection in addition to a 1989 Buick Riviera. I have a PARTS manual for the 1989 that is very helpful. Question is with the onset of computers is it possible to purchase a PARTS manual for my 1999 Buick Riviera? Even with the VIN number many times I have found the parts counter people r making errors. I would like to purchase a PAPER PARTS manual for my 1999 Buick Riviera if they are made. Just got burnt with a part I received from Vintage auto parts after TWO parts men checked the number before I ordered it. I have been checking E
