Whether you are shopping for your used car part online or at your local used car part store, remember the make and model of your car. Not all used car parts will fit all cars, so make sure that you note this when asking for assistance or searching on a used car part website. Once you have the part you need, consider if you will replace it yourself or have someone do it for you.
However, if all this fails and you are still intent on getting factory original parts for your older vehicle you can always try looking for them online. While it is normal to find most car parts stores and manufactures with a significant online presence, there are many more options online than just those.
The idea of fixing up cars has been around just about as long as there have been cars to work on. Make them faster, make them shine brighter, make them more comfortable and everything in between has been done to cars. And it doesn't matter what type of car it happens to be or how old it is. It doesn't have to be a sports car. It can be a tired old station wagon, a mini van, a pickup truck, a compact car and everything in between. If it has wheels, with the right car parts and some time and work, you can dress up just about any ride.
In order to avoid this, you want to be sure that your insurance company pays you directly for the repairs as opposed to settling the bill after the repairs are done. This will give you the freedom to have the car repaired where you choose and have the car parts used that you wish to be used.
Next, you might want to check into parts stores as well. You may have some success with this method, but if you struck out finding the car parts at the dealer, it is unlikely that you will have much luck at a parts store considering most parts stores get their OEM parts from the same place the dealer gets theirs, from the closest manufacturer parts depot.
