Just incase........if anybody's interested......There will be a red convertible 2006 Pontiac G6 going into the junk yard in Northern California.

The junk yard is located in Chico, California. A business called Pick N Pull Auto Recyclers.

The car looked to be 100% complete however, it DID look like it suffered a few hard winters with all the windows left open.

Paint color is red....interior color is either a dark grey or black.

Just thought I'd mention this for those of you who need convertible parts. I sold my convertible a year and a half ago. The guy that bought my car accidentally broke the rear window.............he paid over $700 for his replacement window and $100 for one of those little wing things on the ends of the rear shelf deck.......convertible parts for these cars are rediculously expensive.

5 days later:

The convertible G6 is placed in the wrecking yard . The workers stabbed holes in the trunk to get it to open........don't know why they would do that because the keys are still in the ignition.

Anyhow.....just so ya know.

YES, they can be!!!

Here's a couple pics of the car. The exterior of the car looked to almost be flawless. Worst damage was where the workers stabbed holes in the trunk around the keyhole. There are absolutely zero dents on the body.


Here's a shot of a rear shelf wing. Tucked in nicely where it's supposed to be when the top is up. I asked the cashier how much for that trunk hinge assembly.....she said $11.89............I asked her how much for the trunk hinge assembly that opens the trunk lid for the roof to fold into......she said well, it's a trunk hinge so, $11.89..

DAMN!!!! Those side trunk hinges are selling on ebay for $150....the rear hinge for convertible operation is selling for close to $400....................$11.89 each at my wrecking yard......NOW THATS A HELL OF A DEAL!!!!!

Thinking I should pull the parts and put them up for sale on ebay. If I were to do that, I'd put the reserve price set at $11.89 + shipping cost. 0:)

You can pull the whole rear inner deck by removing the 10mm bolts on hinges, releasing the cable end loops under the hinges with a torx bit, and then undoing the barrel adjusters. You will have to wiggle a bit to get it out of there.
These things fail by the cables breaking, wing stays out, gets crushed by the top mechanism, and the hinge where the wing meets the deck shatters.
I already have a spare one of these from my Pull-n-Pay, but if it were me, I'd pull it and eBay it. Be careful on setting the shipping, once you box and pack it, it's going to be a little.

I ended up pulling some pieces off the car......plan on putting them up for sale on ebay.

The convertible specific parts I got are:

Hydraulic pump assembly $29
Drivers side trunk hinge assembly $12
Passenger side trunk hinge assembly $12
Reverse lift trunk hinge assembly $12
Rear shelf assembly with both wings $25


All in all, less than a hundred dollars after sales tax.

I cut the hydraulic hoses so that I could manipulate the convertible top to get access to some of the bolts...........I can't believe how many tiny convertible parts there are. I have a convertible 5.0 Mustang, and there aren't nearly as many parts associated with that top.

Saw these parts on ebay with prices listed as:
Hydraulic pump assembly $360
Driver side trunk hinge $150
Passenger side trunk hinge $150
Reverse lift trunk hinge assembly $380
Rear shelf assembly with wings $500
