Chevy SSR Parts Cross Reference Part Numbers

From various sources on the Fanatic Forum, this list of alternate parts is useful when the primary GM part numbers are no longer available and you need a replacement. Many parts on the SSR were taken from or similar to other GM related vehicles.

  1. Dash Vents: Oldsmobile Aurora center dash vent is a good replacement but note that they came in black and tan so if you find a rare one you might need to paint.
  2. LM4 Engine 03-04 5.3. This is the Aluminum version of the LM7 only found in the SSR, Trailblazer EXT, Isuzu Ascender through ’07, Buick Rendevous through ’07, Chevy Equinox through ’07 (Source GM)
  3. In Dash mounted Cup holder: part number is 4B0 862 534D from an Audi A6 Sedan 98-05, A4 98-02. Replacement face plates for the cup holder and coin tray are GM 10369644 and 10369644.
  4. Denso AC Compressor 471-7036.
  5. A/C Compressor bracket/mount. known to have cracking issues where it bolts to oil pan. Same as Traiblazer GM PN 12593247
  6. Upper front Control Arms on SSR are the Same as Trailblazer and the other GM variants. They are readily available from all parts sources with bushings installed. NOTE: The lower front control arms are specific to the SSR. Parts sources will list the lowers as the same as the Trailblazer which is not correct. They will not fit, your lower control arms will need to be rebuilt. The correct lower control arms have SSR stamped into them.
  7. Third brake light mounted in tailgate is the same as Pontiac Solstice/Saturn Sky. The Sky has a clear lens with red LEDs instead of the factory SSR red lens with red LEDs, the Solstice is the exact same item.
  8. Side mirrors (body and glass only) are the same as 97-04 Corvette. The pedestal under the mirror body is specific to the SSR.
  9. Rear License plate surround/backup lights are from a C5 (1997-2005) Corvette and are a direct replacement. The many decorative grills available for the C5 corvette rear plate will also fit the SSR.
  10. The passenger side outside door handle is interchangeable with the tailgate handle.
  11. HVAC AC Controller – There have been many discussions about the 3 knob climate control module from a 1998-2002 Alfa Romeo 156 being compatible with the Chevy SSR. The Dephi made module will fit and operate in the SSR. Even the outer trim rings will fit. The only difference it seems is the black center indicators for adjustment and the icons are more of a European style but can be removed and replaced with the original SSR ones. The part number for the Alfa unit is 16238079.
  12. Glove box handle, external part only is the same as Saturn Vue 02-07, Buick Rendezvous through 07 and Chevy Equinox through 07. The internal rod and lever are specific to the SSR but it usually the plastic that breaks so you can swap the latch parts.
  13. OEM door check is compatible with replacements for a 2015-2017 Chevrolet Colorado / GMC Canyon (GM part# 2336-0941). Electronic latch is from the 1996-2003 S10, just need to enlarge the yellow rod retainer hole.
  14. 05-06 SSR with the 6 speed manual transmission, replacement clutch master cylinder gasket can be replaced with a NAPA part #675-1210.
  15. Tonneau trunk cover latch release GM 15099844 = 99-05 Volkswagen Jetta Liftgate Tailgate Lock Solenoid Adjust Motor Actuator part numbers 3B0959781C or 3B5827061B or 7L6959781 NOTE- Must retain & use original SSR saddle seat from the old unit. Also, the power plug receptacle is different so either changing the SSR plug to a VW version or simply removing the plug and using wire connectors is required.
