Hey guys, I'm looking for a pdf of the mid 90s Riviera Parts bible. Need the OEM part number for the drivers side window motor in my 96 Riv.

Can anyone link it here please?

I hope you can find a NOS motor, but also consider getting a good junkyard pull motor: the standard VDO motors GM uses run at a slower rate than the ones used in the Riv.

I actually just picked up a new one (Dorman) from Auto Zone for approx $35. Got the replacement done in about 30 minutes from panel off to panel on, and it worked right away. Speed seems to match the passenger side. I love how quick these windows are.

Btw, thanks Larry!

for several years,
i have wanted to preserve this WONDERFUL reference tool on my hard-drive(s),
but several attempts with the .pdf download never worked for me.
...................

the link Larry70GS posted on friday 25may2018 "here you go"

( http://rivperformance.editboard.com/t7618-faq-the-holy-grail-of-riviera-part-numbers-diagrams?highlight=the+holy+grail )

leads to
a page dated 1october 2010, which reads "Thought this might come in handy for some"

Download PDF version here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/fts5kr8racwq1ey/Riv_Part_Numbers.pdf

...................

but the above dropbox link doesl not download a workable .pdf file.

respectfully, for safekeeping,
can we somehow get this valuable resource distributed among members of this board
AND therefore saved on our own hard-drives?

rather than relying on the internet cloud ?
(think photobucket)

maybe we can swap burned disks via smail mail ?

thank you Larry.
this file is a treasure.
our Rivieras are reaching the time when dealer/manufacturer support is about finished.

regarding a 70's Corvette, i obtained the Chevrolet "Assembly Manual"
which was v helpful in keeping the car together correctly.

this Riviera .pdf document is similar.

Aaron got back to me. He is aware of the broken link and will fix it.
