How to ensure I am getting the right part

I cannot seem to find the part I am looking for. Am I searching correctly? (site engine search and category tab.)
If you’ve searched for a part by using the keyword search box and didn’t find the part you needed, the part may fall under a different search term. Try using other keyword combinations. For example, if you’re looking for a tail light cover for a 1987 Pontiac Bonneville, you may try typing “tail light cover,” “tail light cover Pontiac Bonneville 1987,” “Bonneville 1987 tail light cover,” etc.
You’re always welcome to contact us directly and request the availability of the part you need.

 What is a UNIVERSAL part? How do I make sure it will fit my car?
A universal part is not a direct part, which means that its specifications (measurements, alignments) are not exactly the same as the one your car requires. It will fit any year, make, and model, but you might need to do some modifications to the part in order to make it fit. This applies to non-accessory items like body parts, brake parts, suspension parts, etc.
To make sure that the universal part will fit your car exactly, take note of your car’s specs carefully before making any modifications. Most of our products come with detailed, easy-to-follow instructions to help you make the necessary adjustments correctly.

Does this part come with everything I need? Or do I need to order other parts?
 Whether a SKU includes auxiliary accessories depends on the manufacturer. With compressors, for example, some manufacturers include the A/C clutch in their compressor package, while others do not. For example, if you need an A/C compressor and clutch, search for a SKU that includes both. If you don’t find one for your particular make and model, then you will have to buy the component and the auxiliary accessories separately.

Are your parts new? Do you offer re-conditioned or recycled parts for sale?
We primarily deal with brand new parts. However, we also have some items that are reconditioned, namely, alternators, starters, brake calipers, etc. To help identify these items, we have added a Reconditioned or Remanufactured note to the part description.

What the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) can tell me about my vehicle

 What is the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and how do I find my car’s VIN?
The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) functions as your car’s unique DNA – its unique serial number. VINs are normally located in several locations on a car, but the most common places are:
  • Door frame/door post of the front doors (driver or passenger’s side)
  • Dash near the windshield
  • Engine (front)
  • Car firewall
  • Left-hand inner wheel arch
  • Steering wheel/steering column
  • Radiator support bracket
  • Car’s title, registration, guarantee/maintenance book or on the declarations page of your auto insurance policy

To learn more about VINs and how to read them accurately, visit the website.

What your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) can tell you about your car. Understanding what each digit represents.
If you have a vehicle identification number (VIN), it is possible to get other information about the vehicle from that number – like the model year. Manufacturers who produce more than 500 vehicles a year must use a standardized 17-digit vehicle identification number.
  • Positions 1-3: World manufacturer number
  • Position 4: Restraint system type (passenger car only) brake type and GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) class (Trucks and Vans only)
  • Position 5: Line, series, body type
  • Position 8: Engine type
  • Position 9: Check digit
  • Position 10: Model year
  • Position 11: Assembly plant
  • Positions 12-17: Production sequence number
