Can anyone help me find a right torque rod for the trunk lid on my '99 Bonneville?
It snapped last week, and I can't find a replacement anywhere online.
The part# is 25677962.

I had already replaced the left one after it broke last year. There must have been a bad batch of these parts for the '99.

Thanks.

I got mine at a junkyard for $5.
That was several years ago, and the number of that generation cars
in the junkyards seems to be shrinking. I guess they crush them
after a while as demand for those parts lowers.

I don't stock anything older than 2000, but Bonnevilles are very plentiful in my area. If you want me to pick one up at a salvage yard and and are willing to cover the shipping from MN to CA just send me a PM or email andrew.suderman@gmail.com

Thanks for the offer, harofreak00. I'll look around for a local pick-a-part. If I can't find one, then maybe I'll take you up on that.

Can anyone tell me with certainty if a trunk lid torque rod for a 1995 (with spoiler) will fit and work on a 1999 (with spoiler)?

I've been searching for part number 25677962 for the right side on my 1999 SLE, and I still can't find that part anywhere,.
I'm wondering if part 25634214 which is listed for a 1995 with spoiler will fit and work on my 1999.
According to multiple web site lookups, 25634214 won't fit on a 1999, but that seems odd to me because I would expect the 1995 and 1999 trunk lids and mounting hardware to be the same.
Thanks.

I was unable to find the right torque rod after looking online regularly for several weeks.

Solved: Went to the junk yard last weekend and found that part on the only Bonneville they had in that yard.
That donor car was only there for roughly 9 days, and already the left torque rod was already removed from the trunk, so I'm glad I found the one for the right side. Went home and installed the used part, and now the trunk lid pops up and stays open as it should. :banana:

Both the left and right torque rods broke at different times on my '99 SLE. I had previously replaced the left one with a brand new one that I found online last year. There must have been a bad batch of those torque rods for the 1999 Bonneville, as I previously owned a 1992 supercharged SSE and a 1993 SSEi, both were purchased used and kept for many years, and none of the trunk lid torque rods ever broke on either of those older Bonnevilles.
