Weather Strip

Looking for the weather strip with the OEM # 20818154. So far i have tried a few dozen places with no luck. Looks like both in USA & Canada its no longer available at dealerships. Thanks

Typed in www. parts.com & the site said the part is discontinued. Any thoughts? Is the part number the same number as the sky?

Thanks Guys for help help but chickenwire is right its no longer available. I will keep searching. Do they use the same OEM part numbers for both the solstice & the sky?

Something doesn't add up. If you go to the site, key in the part number in the search window, it lists 10 parts found. I scrolled down to the "Saturn" listing and it shows as available.

Just did it. Just now.

Actually, it's not that crazy. U.S. car companies squeezed suppliers to pay for their own tooling over the last 25 years. As such, the suppliers would have to amortize the cost of tooling over a period of years. This always causes a problem in that the design of the component is technically owned by the car maker, but the tooling is owned by the supplier. GM goes bankrupt, leavings millions in unpaid bills to suppliers, they never get paid, they've already paid for the tooling but technically can't sell the parts off of the tooling because the design is still owned by GM.

Supplier cuts their costs by collecting scrap money for the tooling, parts never get produced again, and here we are today.
