  • WTB - Broken Factory Radio and HVAC Controls

    I want to make a dummy face [ha ha, here's my dummy face ] for my 2001 Chevy Malibu. Does anybody have or know where I can find broken/used head units and HVAC controls for just the faces? I have checked local junkyards and ebay and they are all selling the stuff for at least $25 plus shipping. I am willing to pay shipping plus $5.

    Thanks

    junk yard?
    (I mean if you don't get it at the local junk yard, use yellow pages and get to the city where you find a junkyard with one)

      Thanks Mars,

      The local junkyard wants $200 for the radio. I guess I'm really just hoping that someone might have a dead one laying around that they want to get rid of. I have seen working ones on ebay, but they usually get bid up past $25 and then the shipping is around $10-$20. I am way too cheap to pay this right now for just the plastic fronts. Maybe I can just put a picture of a radio and hvac controls on top of my screen. I'm sure that nobody would notice :P

            Thanks Pogue - I have already tried that site and the prices are ridiculous.

            Kami - I will keep my eyes open at some thrift stores and local papers.

            If anybody finds the HVAC controls or radio I need, please send me a pm.

            Thanks

                  Mine are not broken, but that's a good idea. I could e-mail the sellers on e-bay and ask them to let me know if they talk to anyone with broken ones that would be willing to send them to me.

                  By the way, I just had my car in the dealer and I asked them what they do with their old radios. If they have a warranty claim, they send them back to the company for testing. Otherwise, they are forced to destroy the units. Again, if anybody has an extra one laying around, let me know.

                  Thanks

                    What's ridiculous about $39 for a radio? They list the prices in descending order, so the first place listed has the radio for $750, but on page 11 it's $39
                    Debt as of 1/1/05: $34,354.48
                    Debt as of July 4, 2007: $0.00 explanation

                      Have you tried asking around local car audio shops? They sometimes have a stack of broken crap to throw out so you might be able to get something out of them.

                        $39 is not bad if the radio works, but I just want the plastic face to make a dummy plate to put on top of my lcd.

                        Kami - thanks for the tip on the audio shop, I'll call around there too. Man, all this work and I might as well pay $39
