This book includes mechanical parts of the vehicle; see the separate body parts book for the body and interior. This is the book that dealership parts & service departments used to order parts. The illustrations in the book will help you to identify parts, and the exploded views can aid you with the assembly or disassembly of some parts of the vehicle. The text is a list of the parts available at the time of publication with data such as part numbers, model-year application and/or component application, part names, and more. You'll see a section on VIN decoding, as well as a handy alphabetical index to look up parts by name. See my other items for the companion body parts book.
You will find original parts numbers, which are still useful today because most parts vendors still use those numbers to keep track of their own stock. You can also use this parts book to find out which parts on your vehicle interchange with other years and models covered in this book. Parts books are the authority on the correct equipment for your vehicle; you'll know definitively which parts and accessories are original when you use this book.
