Can't think of one around Athlone off-hand, just a few motor factors next to Golden Island. If you fancy going a few miles there's a breakers yard right beside the railway station in Mullingar.

skp,

The Mullingar yard will sell you anything they have. Call them on 044 9343755 to see if they've got what you want.

offaly1,

Is the place in Ballycumber not a truck breakers. I can only ever remember seeing big stuff in there.

Yeah Brackens has a bit of everything in it. My brother got a steering wheel for his 5 series there.

Its just a huge pile of scrap. Its where my dads old car ended up too.

Joe Devery Car Dismantlers are just outside Athlone on the Ballykeeran road,....... on the right after Colm Quinn's BMW dealers as you are leaving town.

Chicken Byrne in the Heath is useless. I once rang him, told him what I was looking for, he went off for a bit, came back and said he had it. I asked are you sure (because he had wasted my time before). he said 'sure I have it in my hand' etc, 'Aren't I looking at it' etc. 35 miles later, he did not have it and could not recall saying he had it in his hand. I was tempted to burst him. But didn't.

Stay away from North west car Dismantlers, will send you a dodgy part and won't refund your money.
