Best Place to buy parts?
« on: May 16, 2018, 08:53:17 PM »
Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum and to the delights of owning a Mk1 Galaxy, can anyone advise me on the best place to buy parts, i.e. good quality, good prices, good advice.
Im looking for a new wiper linkage and a parking sensor at the moment, but no doubt more to come.

Thanks
Hag

It varies - you can find some bargains on eBay for used bits (or some new bits for that matter). Thats probably your best bet on the wiper linkage, though they can be repaired usually anyway if its the usual seizing issues. Parking sensor probabbly best new so you know it definitely should work, particually if you don't know which one is the problem, I've used Eurocarparts for most of the common bits you need (track rod ends, drop links etc).

If yours is a 53 plate (2003) then its a mk2 not a mk1 - The mk1 has separate indicators to the headlights, the mk2 its all one unit, changeover is 2000.

Thanks Brian. much appreciated, tried mending the wiper linkage but the cast casing just snapped, so new one required.
