Best bet is the junk yard

    OK try they are a network of junk yards. There are many on there. When you go there and are asked to choose your part from the list, chances are your door wont be there. Just choose a standard part and you will see that there are many Auroras out there. I know for sure I have a 2001.

    i believe you are talking about the arm rest? Yes I have had to replace mine. I have a girlfriend who has a 2001 also, one I found on ebay and another at my local junk yard.

    When you do find the part, you will need to take out the two screws in the vents in the back of the console. You can then pry this plastic part strait back and two clips will let it pop off, not that easy to do either. They, the screws are there in the luvers of the vent and cant be seen. Philips screws. Once that is off you can get to everything else. Time and patience is need to repair this. Good Luck!

    Also you just need the plastic top of the door. The top padding will come off if you want to change or have a different color.

I have a 2001 Olds Aurora and am looking to replace the buld that illuminated the gearshift bezel on the center console. Can you please provide how to access it ? Thank You

First of all the bulb is difficult to find a replacement for. I could not the the exact one, but found one that worked.
You have to remove the front bezel from around the heater and radio controls first. This is just pushed into clips - no screws. This will expose the area needed to remove the console bezel. Remove two screws at the front of the console bezel, just above the front storage compartment. These would have been exposed after removing the heater bezel.
Pull upward on the rear of the trim plate to disengage two retaining clips.
Disconnect the electrical connectors.

Hot and Cold air from vents in 2001 Olds Aurora

The Aurora has dual-zone heating & cooling. Sounds like either the sensor or control know on the car is disconnected or not working. The passenger control is the knob on the passenger door. The sensor for it is under the glove box. I believe you need to remove the glove box hinge to see it. Could be the wires came loose or the sensor is bad. If anyone was working in either of these areas, maybe they forgot to reconnect one of them.

Volvo 2002 s60 fuel door

My guess is that the hinge clips are broken - it's hard to see how it works after the clips are broken off. I purchased and installed a replacement hinge from I emailed asking for help and they provided direction, but it's pretty easy. Use a small punch to drive the centers out of the plastic attachement pins to get the old hinge off. Replace the hinge, press the center pins in and re-attach the door. There was a drawing on the referenced web site when I replaced mine, but I just looked and didn't see it. I'm sure there are many places to purchase the replacement hinge - that's just where I bought mine.
