    Default Hello and 1997 original owner needs help with parts

    Hello I'm the original owner of a 1997 Grand Prix GTP. I took care of it pretty much but somethings are just going bad, Rubber seals become old, leather seats crap, etc. I need to replace several things, and I'm having a very hard time finding any parts for these items :

    Dark Gray top dash: cracked
    Door weather stripping, including flat pieces on for edge, that seals doors, also needed, top rain guard that goes above doors.

    Working light/reflector, original red/white for front passenger door.

    Advice on repairing leather on drivers seat, and back headrests, all damaged from Florida sun when I was there for a couple years. now is garage kept.

    the engine is working well, I need new struts but not now, has a better hundred 35,000 miles on it, body is in excellent shape, the CD player stopped working but who uses CDs now? first position of the A/C + heat blower do not work but the higher ones do (control problem). Heads up display position control doesn't work but I have replacement heads up display ( didn't want to install unless I find a new dash). It had a couple problems of the years but nothing unfixable.

    So considerate still runs well and is in pretty good shape I just need to get some for the cosmetic fixes and possibly replace cushion also in the driver seat because it's a little bit flat.

    Help in finding any/all of these parts for a reasonable price if possible would be appreciated,

    PS the head rest on the back middle seat has come off and I'm not sure how to fix it. Can upholstery shop do that also?

    I looked all over for the weatherstripping but everybody says they have parts that do not fit. I can't find upper dash or the light either. I would like to get this thing looking as new as possible as it's running so well.

    Find a complete set of seats out of an 04+ GP and swap those in. Way better design and comfort. Or find GXP seats. Blower motor resistor sounds bad for the #1 position, junkyard or ebay for a working stereo (and I use CD's still, lol..), there is a Heads-Up display how-to on here that shows how to fix and actually improve the HUD.

    For the weatherstripping maybe try gmpartsdirect.com

    I want GXP seats but they never come up around here. 04+ seats are the way to go..

    You pull it junk yard the dash or Ebay it.There are lots of salvage parts on there

    Do the HuD how to fordman77 suggested and return the one you got new if you can
    Just a bunch of junk thrown together http://www.grandprixforums.net/threa...shes-a-runner)

    This writeup is for an 04+ but might work for the 97-03's as well. Lots of links have been broken so if I come up with a better one I'll post it.

    Also, could just be a bad switch for the HUD. It was also an issue. If you have a jy close by try grabbing a different switch and try it out. Could save you some hassle.
