Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you with your question.

Expert:  Dan replied 10 months ago.

I would go to a u-pull junk yard and pull the parts off that you need. There should be parts available as this is a pretty common vehicle.

Please reply to this if you need more help and we can continue this conversation at no extra charge. This does not have to be my only answer. If you are satisfied with my service, please rate at the top of the screen. Rating does not close out your question. Remember, sometimes it is difficult to completely diagnose your vehicle without being there, but I will try to give you the best answer I can. Hoping to be giving you 5 star service.

I live on an island and the part is not available at any junk yard. That's a pretty obvious solution. I was hoping for a part number.
Thanks anyways
