Metric

Remember that these cars use metric o-rings. So most of those o-ring variety packs will be slightly different sizes from what you need.

Does anyone know where I can get a cheap value pack of *metric* o-rings? Something like what Harbor Freight sells but in metric (all of theirs are imperial).

I'm in Canada and can't find them.. and you'd think we would have them here of all places!

Mine are just like that!

I'm going to try to order some from the place I get all most of my parts since I need a few other items.

As far as I can tell. I even looked in the shop manual and they have two different numbers pointing at them.

One seemed about 1mm larger than the other.

Well I just picked up a couple 1/4" x 1/16" o-rings at my local AC Delco shop. They didn't have the 6X2 but they did 7X2 and 5X2 - so we'll see if the 1/4"X1/16" fit - they look small, but they are rubber.

Damage $0.67 for the set.

It isn't too often that I go to the parts store and hand the guy a single dollar and then get change back.

Cheers -
Scott
