HELP - Canít Find Parts: 1993 Silhouette

Greetings, folks!

I have a dearly cherished 1993 Olds Silhouette (3.8L V6) that needs some TLC, but I can no longer find any source online that has some of the most critical parts. The (currently) two most-pressing concerns are:

- I need to replace the inside driverís door latch handle and locking slider, and

- I need to repair/replace the internal parts for the turn signal switch, as I can no longer turn on the right-turn flashers. (The left-turn flashers are no working so well either!)

Any suggestions for parts, new or salvage yards, would be much appreciated!

(I bought Glorianna the Green Goddess Wagon in December of 1992, and was horrified that the factory had put twelve miles on her! I am committed to her, and want to get her back into a pristine condition. I even went online to see if anyone made a minivan that could match her fine looks and capabilities, and found none. I was not surprised. ;-) )

Blessings, and thank you!,

Richard Fairbanks

Rock auto for the signal switch.

Thank you so much for the prompt response!

I had gone through their site, but all I could find was the Steering Column Repair Kit

What did I miss?

Blessings, and thank you!

Alas, the Standard Motor Products DS719 is not the correct turn signal arm, as it has the lights, instead of the cruise control. The ACDelco 25140640 Turn Signal Switch Arm listed below it is the exact replacement for the stalk, but it does not include the actual switch (or whatever) that has broken.

I have posted two pictures to show Gloriannaís turn signal arm with cruise control and the full touring package dashboard.

I have three manuals for Glorianna (including the factory service manual), but none of them go into any detail about what that steering column switch actually is, nor are there any part numbers for it. In the Olds service manual, they only refer to it as the ďTurn/Hazard Switch.Ē There are picture reference numbers, but no part numbers.

My concern is that I will need to contact salvage yards for the (very used) parts.

Any suggestionsóparts suppliers or salvage yardsówould be deeply appreciated!

Blessings, and thank you!
