Do you have a C-max or a Napa in your area? I have inquired about that also and have found that they can get them thru another company. I cant remember the company that they can get them thru but If you would like I can find out tomorrow about that also for you??

made some calls and can't find an aftermarket one which sucks and a new one is over 400 bucks but i did manage to find a passenger side rear clip for 150 bucks the guy is going to check the condition of it and let me know but if the insurance companies rules it as his falut and dependin on how much i get a new one would be nice but i want to buy my wheels so the 150 buck one is where i'm leading toward for now

Hey booboo. Just called to the auto stores in my area napa, cmax, bensons. and they no longer make the rear quarters for cavalier 2 doors :( . sorry. If you would like i can still check out the scrap yard for a rust free one

the rear quarter panels have to be cut off using an angle grinder or torches. and then have to be welded back in. that is how i am pretty sure they have to be removed.. Weird why the no longer make them. I was tempted to call the dealer but you know what kind of price i am going to get from them. sorry again

there are a few ways to get the quarter of torches are the worst to much heat will warp the metal, grinder will work good or use a 1/4 or 3/8 hole saw and cut the spotwelds this is time consumeing but by far the best way!!! Also i called around noone will even look in their computor for that here they jjust say no can't get it, gm dealer want's $1200 and say it has to be shiped in from U.S. but looks like yur makin out pretty good. Where did u find the new quarter for $400? Good luck man hope ya get her fixed up without to much trouble!!

yuck. i hate reciprocating saws. cept for when cutting cars in half. better idea is to use the grinder to take off the spot welds. then you have a near perfect piece of metal with minimal damage.
