We ordered ours from Toyota of Canada for like.. $80. I wonder, since the whole rear end setup is all the same on the first gen and second gen, if the backing plates and cables are too.Speedwoble wrote: ↑Wed Apr 10, 2019 5:23 am I actually bought a LH backing plate 46504-20070 on eBay from a seller in Dubai for an unbelievable $180 to my door. I was prepared for it to be a scam, but it arrived in just 2 days. Complete with Toyota stickers and made in Japan. There was a small amount of shipping damage to the post the parking brake shoes rest on, but the seller made it right and I was able to bend the little ears back.
Installed with no problems. Also found my way through parking cable replacement(covered in the discontinued parking brake cable thread)
My bad, yes, I ordered parts for 1st gen. I am currently working on the front suspension and noticed all the similar parts there. Should not have made assumptions about the rear.zbyers wrote: ↑Wed Apr 10, 2019 6:49 am

EDIT: OP was asking regarding 2nd gen vibe. Speedwoble is referring to a first gen GT (per part # mentioned). Those are not the same.
Matrix backing plates for the same trim level would be the same. IE: AWD, GT/XRS, FWD. etc.stonesouls wrote: ↑Fri Jul 08, 2022 10:16 am I have a 2009 Pontiac Vibe 1.8. I recently changed out the front bearing assemblies and knuckles got lucky found an extremely low mileage garage kept vibe that was rear-ended and purchased the two front assemblades they had about 30,000 on them.
The originals lasted for 130,000 mi, not bad. Of course the backing plates dust Shields we're totally rusted out the assemblies I got looked brand new original paint on them.
I purchased Moog assemblies for the rear and of course the dust shields were rotted out. I replaced them without the dust Shields.
I've read in numerous places online opposing views on the need for these shields for the rears necessary or unnecessary accelerated wear on the rotors and pads without them.
To get to my point, I have located two brand new rear assemblies in Canada for a 2009 Matrix seems the Toyota dealership up there that I linked onto has left and right in stock my rear suspension of course is not independent as most of these are not my question is are they an exact replacement and an exact fit for the Vibe?
I've looked high and low and cannot find any place that cross references parts for these two vehicles looks like that's by design but I've read many parts are interchangeable.
I hope somebody can answer this question for me. Thanks in advance.
Woww! Thank you for this update and glad to hear that you got it right and perfectly fit. I should check this too.stonesouls wrote: ↑Tue Jul 26, 2022 3:44 pm Exact fit. Toyota dust Shields with hubs for 2009 Pontiac Vibe were a exact fit. I spent an extra couple hundred dollars getting this right. I hope this helps someone who needs to replace the rear bearings on a 2009 Vibe. 1.8L. www.diamondseapoolsandconstruction.com/contact-us
But I mean, the cross reference does exist. They are basically the exact same vehicle so it's pretty safe to assume they're cross reference. Brakes are the same, bearings are the same, etc.stonesouls wrote: ↑Mon Aug 22, 2022 12:29 pm Yes like I said, The matrix rear dust shield and hub exact fit. The basic problem is there's no cross reference anywhere online for any of this. Could have saved myself a lot of time and trouble and money. But okay I got the right thing installed good luck to you.
Those did not fit because they are made for the Matrix without independent rear suspension. It says so right here in the description.neb wrote: ↑Thu Sep 08, 2022 8:34 am Does anyone know a source for rear dust shields for an 09 Vibe GT 2.4L?
Even a part # to search for would be helpful...
I ordered part # 47803-02020 and 47804-02020 from a Canadian dealer and they did not fit the GT, although they are listed for the 09 Matrix XRS...
