86 Grand National

I assume most listings are the same as TR models

NOTE - There's NA parts mixed in too - be careful, do you homework.

Rockauto is doing a clearance on wipers right now and they start under $2. This includes winter blades and the one piece style that I like. The 1 piece ones are priced about $4. It's a good time to stock up with the weather getting colder now so I thought I'd throw it in for you guys. :rock:

Got the order in yesterday and checked it out..
Always be cautious when ordering clearance parts...

Here's the email I sent them:

Hello.

I received this order today and there's a few issues with it, pics attached below.

1. I ordered 2pc ACDelco PN 25518880, which is supposed to be 5pc clamp ea, I received 2 single clamps total. I should have received a total of 10pc clamps.

2. The PN PIONEER 749024 I ordered came in with a "1" written over the "4", so I got 1pc PN 749021, which I cannot use. I need the gasket for a 200R-4, 749021 is for the THM425, and the the same as:
FEL-PRO TOS18629 Oil Pan Gasket
CADILLAC   ELDORADO   (1967 - 1978)
GMC   TRANSMODE    (1973 - 1974)
OLDSMOBILE   TORONADO   (1966 - 1978)
Clamps:

Got a reply from them, my reply added to it below..
Now they're just pissing me off..

Thank you for contacting us about this. I would like to confirm that your vehicle is a 1987 BUICK REGAL 3.8L 231cid V6 Turbocharged. If this is indeed the vehicle that you have, please read below.  If not, please let us know what vehicle you have.

Yes, that’s what I have

The clamps you purchased are sold in different pack sizes. The wholesaler closeout clamps are sold in packs of one. In the description it says, "Sold in packs of {x}; Price reflects cost of each individual item, not the pack". There is a {1}+ next to the wholesaler closeout inventory because it is only sold in packs of one. You did receive the correct amount since you ordered 2.

That is wrong. ACDelco PN 25518880 is a kit of 5pc clamps, I should have received 10pc, 2x packs, since I ordered 2pc AC/Delco PN 25518880. Why are you splitting up individual PN AC/Delco parts?

To assist you further with the issue with the gasket, we ask that you answer the following questions:

    What is the part number on the box? Is this the part number that had been crossed out and shows 749021?
749024 is the PN # the box, someone wrote over it with a marker, making the “4” a “1”.
It's pretty clear in the pics I linked (did you look at them?)

http://s1184.photobucket.com/user/Supersix231/media/CAM00474.jpg.html

    What is the part number on the part?
There’s no PN on gaskets - see pics (Linked again)

    Please describe the difference between the part we sent you and your original part - how does it differ?
Again, I sent links to pictures showing the exact differences.

http://www.rockauto.com/getimage/getimage.php?imagekey=128338&imageurl=http%3A//www.rockauto.com/info/Fel-Pro/FP_TOS18662_Fro.jpg

Specific information including length, size, number of connectors, etc., help the most so we can try to determine exactly what part was sent to you.

Their reply:

Hello,

Thank you for the reply. It does appear that you received a misboxed gasket, so we can have another one sent out. I will have the warehouse confirm that their remaining stock is as pictured before it is reshipped. You can dispose of the wrong part, once you confirm the replacement shipment.

We do have the option to purchase the AcDelco part # 25518880 in a pack of 5 from the drop down menu, but as listed in the catalog, the price is for the individual piece. With that being said, we do have three more that would be available to ship with the misboxed replacement and so you don't have to pay an additional shipping charge. If you would like the three additional pieces, please use the new order confirmation I sent you. Once we receive the $3.88 payment, we will be able to process the new shipment. If you do not, please let me know, so I can instruct the warehouse to go ahead and ship the gasket replacement without the AcDelco parts.

Thank you

Please ship the correct gasket.

As far as the clamps - I will pass. I still don't understand how you can split up a given AC/Delco PN like that - it's disingenuous, and misleading.

Final reply from them:

Hello,

Thank you for your email.  I apologize for the confusion regarding these clamps.  We will ship you the correct gasket, and we will not be sending you the clamps.  Thank you for your assistance, and I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you.

Thank you

Now I will buy even less from them.
