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.
Timely and proper Servicing and maintenance of a Car and Car parts ensures a longer life for the car with problem free driving.

If you ignore the Car Gearbox and not attend to it in time, you may very well have to replace the whole gearbox in order to use the car.
Online, there are usually images of the used car parts that the websites are selling. Be careful when shopping online, because they may not sell you the exact part that you are looking at in the image. Sometimes parts are already painted, and they might not match the paint that is on your car. Sometimes, the parts are available without paint. If you are replacing auto body, the color of the paint is important because your car will look strange or unfinished if it is unpainted or if it is the wrong color. Talk to a body shop before you buy this type of part online.
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.
