Can't locate parts for 2003 Hyndai Accent GT (8000 made that year)
Dealer installed 2004 rear brakes, 2003 didn't fit. Broke the pin in the process. Now can't find the pin. Dealer claims parts for my son's car are becoming obsolete and they can't locate them to replace. Want him to buy a 2009 instead.
Where can he find reproduction, used or new parts? Where can he find the pin?

i strongly recommend you take your vehicle to your vehicle's local dealer and have the belt removed from the door and then inspect the belt for damage. A damaged seat belt might break when you need it most. Seatbelts and safety are the most important thing!
