How to Find What You Need in a Junkyard (Part 2)

In part 1 of How to Find What You Need in a Junkyard, we covered the importance of doing proper research for the used auto part you need, along with familiarizing yourself with your car’s engine.

Before you head to the junkyard it’s helpful to know that 109 U-Pull-It has an up-to-date used auto part inventory online to help you find the specific part you’re after. We recommend reviewing our used auto parts inventory before visiting our junkyards as it can save you a lot of time in your search. Whether you’re searching online or looking in person, here's how to find what you need at the junkyard.

Inspect the Part You Need

Inspect the part before you pull it out of the car. It is possible to tell if the part is damaged or in good condition just by looking at it, but sometimes it's not that easy. If possible, try to get the “best looking” part you can. Sometimes just a small bit of external damage can mean sizable internal damage so it’s a good idea to find a part that looks good from the start. Check the part for any rust, dents, or scratches as these are common indicators of a damaged part. If the part you need includes electrical elements like starters or alternators, bring a jump starter and circuit tester with you to make sure they’re in working order.
