Sounds simple enough, but you would be surprised the number of people who don’t know the make, model, year and series of their vehicle. This is the most important part of your search, especially if there are different versions of your vehicle in the same manufacturing year. There are a number of parts and components for your vehicle that also depend on whether it is a manual or automatic, so bear this in mind when completing your search.
Knowing your vehicles VIN number can be an important step. All of your vehicle’s information is attached to this number including the important information mentioned above. So, if you have the VIN handy when completing your search, it may be even easier to find the part you are looking for. It would also help our team ensure we are giving you the correct part. Its also handy to know the VIN if the vehicle is ever stolen, so record it somewhere safe.
Whether you drive a Holden, Volkswagen or Suzuki, you need to know if your vehicle was a limited or special edition. Usually there is a badge on the car to tell you that, but if you are unsure, check your owner’s manual. Whilst most Suzuki Swifts on the road look similar, there are approximately five different styles and each would have its own unique parts needs.
And finally, possible the most important tip…
Does it look the part?
If you are ordering spare parts online, using common sense is a great place to start. If you can see the original part, or have already taken it off your vehicle, does the one you are looking at online look the same? If not, or if the site doesn’t have photos, its best to start looking elsewhere.
It’s as simple as that, but of course, if you are looking for quality spare parts, look no further than Perth Parts, our easy to use site, and friendly team make us the number one choice for your parts needs.
