Finding Difficult-to-Find Auto Parts




Pages: 1 2

Anytime one is looking for any auto part, he or she has to keep in mind the exact type that is needed. Auto parts are interesting objects in themselves because the slightest difference in the auto parts that are purchased could make all the difference between a running car and a dying one. In addition, though, difficult-to-find auto parts makes repairs to the automobiles that we have all the more difficult. If you have purchased an after-market product that you liked so well, but need another, you may just be out of luck. It’s unfortunate that there are some difficult-to-find automobile parts, but there are some resources to check out if you’re having trouble finding the ones that you need.

Specialty Auto Parts Retail Stores

One option to go about finding the difficult-to-find auto parts that are needed is to go through a specialty company that sells only the specialty parts that you need. Unfortunately, there are not many of these auto parts stores that are available, but one that is a store like this is called NAPA. The NAPA Company is actually located in every one of the United States, and most of the time they can do a great job at finding the difficult auto parts that are needed. For example, if there is a certain driver’s side mirror that broke then they are the people to call in order to order another. They also have a whole host of other auto parts for passenger cars, trucks, as well as other automobiles.

Second-Hand Auto Parts

While it may not always be possible to get to a specialty auto parts store, and if NAPA does not carry the auto parts that are needed, another alternative is to buy second-hand auto parts that are difficult to find. For example, many people in the online community usually help each other out by giving their parts away and letting other individuals in on the secrets where to buy hard-to-find auto parts. These are very good communities to establish connections when it comes to issues relating to automobiles and it is also good if you are looking for difficult-to-find auto parts .

eBay and other Auction Sites

Another option that one may look towards in order to find the hard-to-locate auto parts that they need is eBay or other auction-type websites on the World Wide Internet. Many people and sellers are able to find these types of auto parts because they advertise that they are selling them as retail products. Granted, these types of auto parts may be a little more expensive than most, but the question then becomes how much is too much to spend on the auto parts that one is looking for.

    Sorry folks, you left the most important event in the sequence of events out:

    November 6, 2008 While campaigning last week Obama said helping the auto industry
    would be one of his administration's top priorities.

    Which explains the following flip flop:

    October 28: Prentice says no to auto parts bailout
    November 8: Canada cautiously considers assistance to auto industry

    There is something about cars that seems to bring out the worst in people. Car salesman, car mechanics, auto parts retailers, tow truck companies . . . I mean, seriously, you don't read about flower shops ripping people off this bad.

    Auto Salvage = Rescate / Salvataje de autos/ carros/ coches.

    Quality Used Auto Parts = Repuestos usados de calidad para autos/ carros/ coches

    In Spanish you have different words for 'car' depending on where you are from. So you can use 'auto', 'carro' or 'coche'.

    I've seen this before… it's was simply over-loaded. The weight in a trailer has to be evenly distributed, and if they put a very heavy object in the center, it will bend or break the frame, and this is the result. It doesn't take as much as you might think.
    The approximate capacity of that trailer is roughly 45,000 pounds. one 5-foot square basket of auto parts (transmission shaft castings, etc) can easily put 15,000 or 20,000 pounds in a small area, and *crunch*.
    Like the song says… “Whoops, there it is!'

    “his company Orlick Industries, an auto-parts manufacturer, donated another $30,000. Mr. Braley rejected those numbers.”

    While we're on the subject of auto parts manufacturers, does anyone have figures on how much Frank Stronach of Magna Auto Parts donated to the Liberals?

    And those Magna contracts for the Iltis troop carrying death trap, were those all above board?

    There is SO much to investigate in the auto parts industry, you just have to know where to look.

    Purchase a can of R134a that comes with a reusable hose from an auto parts store. Then, find your low pressure fitting for the AC system. With the car running, turn the air conditioning on maximum cold, (ac button ON) and the vents on high. Basically, as cold as you can make it. Now, put in the R134a, and hope for the best.

    Jason,
    Check back at the site tomorrow for an update regarding the Advance Auto Parts store that is currently at the northeast corner of Atlanta Road and Spring Road. Two of the junk auto repair shops along Atlanta Road have been demolished and one remains next to the museum. I don't know for certain about the last remaining shop but it appears that it will be removed to make room for building A.

    If you don’t think you can pull this off, speed up and get him to chase you. After a few seconds, swerve wildly onto the shoulder, then back into oncoming traffic, and just all over the road. Finally, pull well off the road onto some grass, jump out, and run all around flailing your arms and yelling “BEES! THEY’RE ALL OVER ME! OH GOD!!!” After he lets you go, travel across the country reeling in buyers to help save your late father’s beloved auto parts dealership, and its new brake pad division.

    Joe,

    Agreed. Interesting about FRAM. I did a little research and it looks like FRAM has made filters in Israel and might still be doing so. People should check before they buy. But it's not just FRAM. I ran a search on “Auto parts made in Israel” and found some interesting things.

    try one of those buffers designed to br used on car rims. they look like a ball and attach to a drill. you can probably find one at an auto parts store. seems like one of those would get down into the molds. just a suggestion.

    please notice auto parts warehouse low price guarantee & free shipping of order more than $50.00 is misrepresenting & right out false/fraud when they said they are match the price. moreover, all the four web listed here are affiliate with or same company as autopartsware hourse. So don't waste your time on price matching with them…. they are slick and false lowprice guarantee.
