How To Look Up Car Parts - February 21, 2011, 01:37 PM

All,

Well, to look up bike parts on-line, I normally go to Ronayers.com Ron Ayers Motorsports or Suzuki Parts Diagrams Suzuki Parts SpeedSupplies.Com

It's easy. There's the diagram, I get the part number, then go to a host of other sites to find the best price on what I want.

Now ... I"m looking for a tow-recepticle for my 2002 Chevy Avalanche ... and I can't find ANY diagrams on line at all.

Can anybody help me? ... or do the dealers have a "lock" on that and fix it so you can't find anything on purpose.

I'm stuck.

Pat

I know this doesnt pertain to the Chevy, but I use this to verify OEM parts prices on some other brands...

A make/model specific forum of the truck maybe helpful.

Also check inside the glovebox door. There should be a list of codes I believe RPO? codes). But anyways you can cross reference the list of Chevy RPO codes with the master list...I don't know if it will give you a specific OEM part number, but it's kind of like having a microfiche without the drawings (and part numbers)...you can at least get the actual part description and call around/google for best price...

hope that helps a bit.


What do you value more? Life or Image?

It's a 2002 Chevy Avalanche (I LOVE HER).

I need a replacement for the plug in the back by the tow hitch that controls the electrical for the trailer (the round female electrical plug, where you plug in the trailer for the lights).

Go to the Advance Auto Parts site, enter vehicle info, and search for "trailer connector".

Late to the thread but I can check on it monday for you at work. It should be a standard 7 way plug from OEM. Your truck should have come with a 7 to 4 way adapter also.

I believe NAPAonline.com has a good resource on connnectors also. Don't hold me to it but I do know therer is a catalog with a crap load of electrical stuff for trailers.

Yup, I need the standard 7 way plug from OEM. It 's a special on for GM products that kinda "twists" in to its mounting bracket. Long story of how I broke the old one.
