Hey everyone. Thanks for adding me into the forum. I have a 1978 Chrysler New Yorker Brougham 4D and I'm striking out on finding the following parts. I'm in Kansas City Missouri, but would be happy to get parts shipped to me.

Looking for:
1) Headlamp Cover Motor. Mine was missing when I got the car. I'm having a hard time even finding a drawing to see what all I need.
2) Heater core
3) Wiper Assembly
4) Passenger side rocker panel chrome trim

Thanks for any suggestions you might have for me.


I hear your pain. Looking for parts for my 78 also but I have a 2 door. But I will keep a eye out on parts for you.

Might check with Bud's Salvage in northern OK. A large salvage yard that does Internet sales, as I understand it.

A Chrysler service manual and parts manual for your model year would probably answer all of your questions. Parts book with the "exploded views" and service manual for adjustments and workings. Might also check 1974 Chrysler items as I suspect it's the same system as that model year on your 1978 car, but I could be wrong. Another source could be the Chrysler MasterTech videos in the "Tools" area of www.mymopar.com. Again, might need to start with the '74 model year in your search, as that body series was new that year.

What issue with the wipers?
