Headlight motors of both generations. Their associated relays, especially Generation Isolation Relays and the Generation 2 relay module. Generation 2 motors seldom go bad but they're worth what you pay if the limiter switch is good.

Seat adjusters with good recliner handles.
Trunk release solenoids.
EGR solenoids and valves
Window switches

If you find a 1984.. the connectors the plug into the firewall bulkhead almost dead center of the o2 sensor.. and behind ecu in the console..
I need them and a pig tail.. say 12" plus of the wires.. the longer the better..
I have not figured out if those connectors are the same on the later years.. other than the wiring was moved..

If you are going to rape the car.. it might be cheaper to ask how much for all you can get off it in one trip.. than them pricing each little part..

One thing I wanted to add....as a Fiero owner, I have mixed emotions when I see one at a boneyard.
On one hand, I'm excited to grab some parts that will hopefully keep mine or a fellow-Fiero owner's car on the road.
On the other hand, it's sad to see another one destined for the crusher...
Every time I see one there I can't help but think someone could have kept it on the road...

I wanted to add; Any 88 calipers- do not allow them to be crushed...They are getting much harder to find/purchase as rebuilt. If you don't have anyone who wants them, send them to the Fiero Store so they can have them rebuilt. (And Centric has the inner seals that fix the leak out of the vent seal in the main pistons on the rears)

I just noticed that the 86 GT has a decent looking right quarter window...would you be able to get it off? I used flexible putty knives, screwdrivers, .020 safety wire, etc....My right one is somewhat crazed so one that was in better shape would be great. (Note; I don't need the front 4-5 inches because of a custom "B" pillar cover.)

And I get the bitter-sweet nature of seeing Fieros in the junkyard- While most cars have some possibility of being "Just transportation" to most owners, the Fieros, you can bet, were somebody's baby at some time in the past...The plus is to see that they were NOT crumpled in some way(Meaning nobody got hurt in a major accident)....

That's them!!!

That pic must have been taken before I got to them.
They were pretty well plundered at that point..
The quarter windows are in terrible shape upon close inspection.
I didn't think about the trunk seal
The notchy taillights were cracked unfortunately
Someone just got the fuel tank from the GT after I left the yard on Sunday around 3 pm
I really wanted to get the 5-speed out of the GT but it's just too much work...and the yard won't pull any parts for you

Yeah the picture was from March 3 or 4. They'd only been there a couple days at that point. That junkyard hadn't had a Fiero in a couple years that I was aware of, and suddenly two showed up at once. Dig the carpeting scraps they put down for everyone to lie in comfort while pulling parts from underneath.

I probably should have taken the Performance Sound system but I'm not enough of an audio buff to want it. Glad you got it instead.

Although not a Fiero, the 1990-96 Oldsmobile Silhouette has the same trunk light that the Fiero has. Looks the same and fits perfect.

The light in the trunk.. on the wall..
Some of the f body ones (3rd gen) also fit and have a switch so you can turn it off.. if you keep the trunk (in that cars case rear hatch) open .

The front spindles.
They used to be very cheap and easy to find because the Chevette had the same ones. But they now are getting hard to find. Most people who have extra ones are holding on to them.
I have been looking for a set to start mock ups for possible front brake options.

Also, even though they use many interchangable parts, I would check the condition of the steering collumns.

One of the most overlooked parts from this forum is the fastback driprails. Sure, not something you hear much about, just wait til you need one! I've found more fastback taillights than I have driprails, they're not likely to ever get reproduced, either.
