my dealer bought the part from florida. it was put in last year. i'd ask but my local shop went outta business. :(

Thanks Jason! Any idea who would be the manufacturer? I'm not having any luck online for the cable. I think that it is interchangeble with Toronado, Eldorado and Seville but I am not sure. I have tried GM without any luck. Need some help here CarGurus! Riv.

did you try catallac? try year one, i dont know how current the go but do a lot of old gm cars.
