1. Is the part suitable for my car?
In the auction you have the option to enter your code number (to 2 + to 3 / 2.1 + 2.2) from the vehicle registration document and so to check whether the item is compatible. Please note any restrictions! If you are not sure, you can also compare the description given in the OE numbers with your original part.
2. What vehicle information is required? (Vehicle registration document)
To determine if we can offer you the part you need, we need the (KBA-Nr.) from the vehicle registration, which shall consist of all 4 characters "2.1" (manufacturer) and the first 3 characters of "2.2" (type). We also need the year and in some cases further information such as the engine code, engine number, PR-Nr., etc.
3. What does "PR number" mean? (VW, Seat, Audi and Skoda)
In some parts the PR number ("Primary Equipment Code") is provided. It is a 3-digit number such as "1KK" or "1LQ". You can find the number in the service book, on the back of the first page of the manual or on the customer service data carrier (stickers) in the trunk. (see example image above)
4. What does "VET-Nr." mean? (FIAT)
In some parts the VET Number is provided. You can find this number on the type plate in your engine bay. (See example image above)
5. What does "Orga-number" mean? (Citroen and Peugeot)
In some spare parts the ORGA number (organization number) is specified. It is a 6 digit number. The first 4 digits provide the so-called ORGA number. On newer vehicles the ORGA number is indicated by a 0 in front of the 4 numbers and a letter code behind it, indicating the production place, e.g.: " 08549 CA " (05.04.2000 in Aulnay sois Bois, France). The label is often located on the door pillar of the driver's door. Sometimes can be found in your Service Booklet.
Under the term "ORGA Calculator” you find on the Internet many sites where you can calculate the number of your vehicle. The last two characters give more information about the place of production:
88 - Mulhouse

- On a sticker on the inside of the fuel filler door
7. Explanation of VIN/chassis number
In some of our listings we restrict the right vehicles through the chassis number (for example, fits to VIN "1J-W-013700"). Here are some examples of how they are read.
Volkswagen Ltd: WVW ZZZ 1J Z X W 000001
WVW - Manufacturer Code in this case is Volkswagen
ZZZ - Filling character without significance
1J - Identifies the type of vehicle (Series)
Z - Again a character without significance
X - Indicates the year of the model, here 1999 (not year of manufacture!)
W - Factory of manufacture, in this case Wolfsburg
000001 - Consecutive numbering
In our example with the number 1J-W-013700, the vehicle would not be suitable.
Opel: WOL 0000 51 T 2 123456
WOL - Manufacturer Code in this case is Opel
0000 - Filling character without significance
51 - Identifies the type of vehicle (Series)
T - Model year code
2 - Factory of manufacture, in this case Bochum
123456 - Consecutive numbering
General explanation (for European vehicle identification numbers):
Example Mercedes WDB 168 007 1 J 236589:
WDB Digits 1-3 - World-Manufacturer-Code
168 007 Digits 4-9 - Series. Vary by manufacturer.
FOR EXAMPLE VW does not use the digits 4-6 (therefore filling with "ZZZ"), only the digits 7-9
Opel does not use the digits 4-7 (Therefore filling with "0000"), but only the digits 8 and 9.
1 Digit 10 - Model year code (not necessarily the year of manufacture)
J Digit 11 - Factory
236589 Digits 12-14 - Second part of the world manufacturer code, if its 3rd digit is a 9.
For all other part of the consecutive numbering.
236589 Digits 12-17 - Consecutive ascending number.
8. How do I find out which brake system I have?
You can find the manufacturer of the installed brake system stamped on the brake caliper of your vehicle.
9. Fits rim size ... What does this mean?
Relevant for this limitation are the details that are written in your vehicle registration certificate. The rim size that is installed on your vehicle, it is not decisive.
The information can be found in the vehicle registration certificate under point 15.1 (front axle) + 15.2 (rear axle), in the old vehicle registration document under points 20 – 23.
10. Is there a difference between first registration and year of manufacture?
For the date of first registration, see the registration certificate.
The date of the year of manufacture can be determined only through the chassis number.
When re-importing, the date of the first registration is always the day on which the vehicle was first registered for traffic in Germany (in this case, first registration and manufacture date are NOT the same).
