Had to order a glove box light assembly for mothers 91 Cadillac Brougham
( RWD V 8 ). Hers self destructed into pieces.
The GM Computer said it was number 742574265475686783 but when it
arrived it had a different end where the wire harness connected. The
body of the assembly fit into the hole in the dashboard.
Return part, my buddy starts hitting the computer keys again, turns out
that part number is now for the FWD Caddy's.
I bring the old one which had the original part number . Run the
original number through the computer and it kicks out three numbers that
supersede the original number.
The correct part fits about 96 different GM cars. A call to GM is
placed, the man is looking at part diagrams of all different light
switches and the positioning of the two metal prongs. He then tells Big
Al that part number GBK9- 842758274582 47FKDJH GIIEOUG2754578247582475
So Big Al orders that one. It comes in today - I go there with the
original part. The part that snaps into the dash is the same but the
connector end is still different.
An 8 inch wire harness is supplied, Plug the wire harness connector into
the glove box light switch, the other end of the wire ends abruptly and
it is here where you splice the two wires into the wire harness inside
$18.00 + tax.
