Yes, I have already paid for the parts. The parts guy at my local Nissan dealership placed the order and called me back the next day to tell me that they were on backorder. He asked if I wanted to cancel or keep the order active. He said something about Nissan sometimes tries to locate the part at dealerships across the US. If they found it, they would ship it out to my local dealership to pick up. I kind of questioned that statement, but I chose to keep the order active in hopes that the insert and brackets could be found. I'm guessing my only other option would be to start hitting the local junk yards.
I do appreciate your help. I'm guessing you work for a Nissan dealership? If so, why are parts like this so hard to find? Do they just not exist or are they made when they are ordered instead of making a batch at a time and put on a shelf somewhere in a warehouse?
Thanks again for your help!
