Re: Manual window regulator compatability

Not true! Two years ago, I ventured deep into Hoosier territory to Amboy Ray’s for Buick parts. I set my navigator to direct route thru the back roads. Ray’s was a great computer-literate yard,...

Re: 1998 SC2, MagnaFlow Exhaust Question

It seems like there is an emissions penalty built into the price.
Meeting only the Fed emissions costs $69 more than meeting California/CARB.
The O.E.M. costs $69 more than the HM.

Re: 1998 SC2, MagnaFlow Exhaust Question

That sounds plausible, but both the HM and the OEM website images have a disclaimer, “Not for sale in California”.
Maybe the HM is for California-type emissions requirements in states like New...

Re: Diff pin failure

Can confirm. —When I took apart the DOHC I bought in AR, there was a bumblebee in the oil pan. Saturn design engineers installed a screen on the oil pick-up for that very reason :cool:

Re: 15" rim options?

In my opinion, because 4 lug nuts is not enough.
Because my car gets wet, the aluminum alloy corrodes and material transfers between the alloy and the steel hubs. So, in defiance of standard...
