Default '00-'02 SL sedan center console window switch needed

Hey everyone, I can't locate for the life of me a replacement window switch for my '01 SL sedan. I've called every salvage yard in my area and can't catch one on ebay. A Saturn dealership about 55 miles away has one but its $150! Anyone have a parts car laying around or a spare one on the shelf? The switches were the same from '00 - '02 but not earlier. The side mirror control is next to the window switches, not below it like on earlier models. Anyone help me?

PS Are these notorious for failing and/or being impossible to find?

-Tim

If anybody would likely have your missing part, it'd be sw2cam ...

Hey everyone, thanks for the replies. I actually tracked one down in a junk yard about 70 miles away and picked it up for $25. What a pain in the butt. No wonder Penske doesn't want anything to do with Saturn anymore haha.

Tim what the hell does you wanting to buy parts for a SATURN from a junkyard have to do with Penske. Just what is a FieroSS ....... is that like a Sunfire CTS?

RjION - My comment about saturn and Penske was merely a joke refering to Roger Penske deciding not to purchase the saturn brand from GM (government motors) after previously doing so. I was elluding that maybe Penske thought saturns were so goofy that even he couldn't make them work.

Reference: http://www.autoweek.com/article/2009...NEWS/910059996

Secondly, A Sunfire CTS isn't quite right. Fiero is a model name while SS is a performance designation. Like GXP, Z28, Z06, GTP, SSEI or in saturn lingo; Redline. But in the case of my Fiero SS I just shuffled the brands in a way that best represents the car. For example, if you put a Grand Prix GTP 3.8 SC V6 into your Ion; your Ion could be an Ion GTP. Get it?

My Fiero is a 'SS' model because of the 420hp small block chevy transplant. I guess the C5 Z06 brakes don't hurt either...

Here are the pics






I think I cleared everything up?
