How can I identify a genuine Nissan body part from an aftermarket part.

How can I identify a genuine Nissan body part from an aftermarket part.

Postby MatiCamsv » Fri Feb 27, 2009 9:14 pm

I'm trying to find replacement body parts to repair a damaged hood on my Nissan Pathfinder. I've found someone who says they have a new genuine Nissan hood, but I don't know how to verify its authenticity.

Why worry?? All auto body parts are made in Japan anyway, or some other off-shore area/country! So, if you have a Nissan--yep--the parts will be made in an off-shore country!

And, if the person has torn off or obliterated all of the identifing labels, stickers, inked printing, then go buy one at the dealers, and pay top dollar! And, you'll still get a hood made off-shore!

Or:

You can go to an auto junk yard, and try to buy one off a genuine Nissan, if they have one!

I'd take a knowledgeable person along if they are in the auto trade. And, if you tell the junk yard, they will sell you the correct part, because they don't want or need bad publicity from selling the wrong parts!

Genuine parts are stamped, look for a stamp on your original to know where to look on a new one. look along the edges.

Excuse me for the disturbance but for me the best way to find quality parts is thru after market parts stores online like partstrain.com. they have a huge variety of both interior and exterior parts like Nissan towing mirrors. On the other hand, some of them are just offering discounts especially if you are a first time buyer. This is not to make an agreement with you but for you to test how their products appeared to be. As for them, by any means would help the public. But in order not to become a victim of ripped off which have been noted in the previous years, you still need to be aware. Better check the reputation of the store before doing the purchase.

Any good (and honest) mechanic would be able to recognize whether a part was authentic to a certain make. If you're still not sure, try looking for serial numbers or other noticeable signs that the part, be it a water valve, oil cap or full-on engine compartment is legit.
