Having Car Trouble? Replace these 4 Used Car Parts & Save Money Print

Keeping your car running smoothly does not have to break the bank. For many repairs, high-quality used parts can be a reliable and budget-friendly alternative to new parts. But with so many parts in a car, how do you know when something needs replacing?

Here we explore the top 4 used car parts that are difficult to find and extremely expensive to purchase new, providing valuable information on their function, signs of wear and tear and how to find them quickly and easily through Parts Plus Australia’s extensive network.

  1. Headlights and Taillights

Headlights are crucial for safe nighttime driving, offering increased visibility in low-light conditions like fog or dusk, while taillights make your car visible from behind, especially during braking and nighttime driving. They also include brake lights and turn signals for clear communication with other drivers. When evaluating if replacement is necessary, consider functionality issues like bulb failure or dim lights, as well as safety concerns such as cracked lenses. Don’t wait for complete failure! If you notice reduced light output or damage, it is suggested that you replace your headlights or taillights as soon as possible. Parts Plus members offer a wide range of used lights for various car models or seek expert assistance at a Parts Plus member for compatible replacements.

  1. Door Mirrors

Cracked or shattered mirrors necessitate immediate replacement, as they hinder visibility. Loose mechanisms cause vibration or misalignment, impairing clarity. Integrated features like power adjustment or blind-spot monitoring may malfunction, warranting replacement. While scratches or dents aren’t safety risks, they obstruct visibility. Parts Plus members offer various used door mirrors, catering to different car models. Replacing a faulty mirror with a quality used one restores visibility, enhances safety and potentially saves money compared to new parts.

  1. Transmission Components

Imagine cruising down the road, but every gear change feels clunky or hesitant. This could be a sign of worn-out transmission components. A car’s transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels, ensuring smooth gear changes and optimal performance. However, just like any other system, transmission components can wear down over time. Symptoms of transmission trouble include difficulty shifting gears, slipping gears while driving, grinding noises or vibrations.

Replacing a faulty transmission component with a high-quality used one can be an affordable option compared to a complete transmission overhaul or a brand-new unit. Changing transmission components can be a complex and demanding task, recommended only for experienced mechanics with the proper tools and knowledge.

  1. Wheels

Wheels are the backbone of your car’s mobility, enduring potholes, curbs, and daily wear. While resilient, they occasionally demand attention or replacement to ensure safe driving. Look out for bends or cracks from impacts, possibly repairable if minor, yet severe damage jeopardises safety, causing vibrations. Even cosmetic imperfections like dents can compromise structural integrity. Rust, especially on steel wheels, poses risks, while general wear and tear can weaken them over time. With high mileage or unusual vibrations, consult a mechanic promptly.
