    Right part / wrong part

    Based upon some recent threads, it may be helpful if we had something to help the membership identify and purchase the correct parts for their cars. Recent examples of parts purchases gone wrong have included thermostats, power steering racks, and tail shaft seals.

    It is simply suggested that a member post up info in this thread to help others from ending up with an incorrect part. Useful information would include the part name, store/company purchased from, part manufacturer and part number together with the year, make and model of the vehicle. Members should also include wrong part info also.

    I am one of those people that simply expect the wrong part to show up when I order something. If this saves one member time and hassle, I think it would be a great reference thread.

    I'll Start. I had such a hard time finding this part. None of my local auto parts stores had anything like this.

    Checking your RPO codes may help in some cases.

    Another thing is when you get the wrong part from the store have them check the book not the computer. The books usually have all the correct part numbers.
