Help needed - Buying parts in US

Hi All,

Happy New Year.

Can someone help me out please?

My son has a Dodge Avenger, and it is very hard sourcing parts here in Australia, especially second hand parts.

Can someone in the US please help to buy some parts at a local wrecker/breaker/junk yard and post them to me?
Obviously I will fully reimburse the buyer for the parts and postage, plus a case of beer.

Cheers,

JG

Have you tried ebay? I've sourced X5 parts from Russia and Latavia with free shipping.

eBay does not have any of the parts I require.

The parts I require are fairly small - should fit into a box about 30cm X 30 cm X 15 cm, maybe even smaller and weigh no more than 2 kilos.

The parts I need are

Wiring loom for the tail lights (bulb holder to first connector)

Boot/trunk hinge - Right side (strut not required)

Front right door internal handle

Front left window regulator (motor)


Please let me know if you can help.

Cheers,

JG

My sister had one of those cars. I didn't like it at all. It worked well for a few years. Later, it became a real problem. Same for a friend's car. Not saying no, let's try to help you out. Start a conversation with an ebay seller. Especially one that has an entire car. Most sellers will offer those posts for you to buy through ebay. They won't risk a bad rating through ebay. What is the year model? Did they make those only for one generation?

Hi,

Yes, it is a terrible car, and my son is selling it. Just needs to get it fixed up before selling.
It is a 2009 model, and not very popular here. It was my son's first car, and he liked the macho looks (baby Charger??) and rareness. Well, that came back to bite him in the arse!
