The spindle car parts you need to fix your old car are easy to find at car dealerships.
But the parts you might need to do the job yourself aren’t so easily found.
“There’s a big difference between a factory part and a consumer product,” says Gary Niehaus, vice president of research at CarFix.
He suggests looking for parts in a dealer’s catalog, online, or at car parts suppliers, which typically include information about warranties and other terms and conditions.
“If you don’t know that information, you’re going to buy the wrong thing,” Niehoff says.
“What you want to know is what the manufacturer’s warranty says, what the warranty does, and how much money it will pay if you get it fixed.”
To make things easier, Niehefs says you can use a spreadsheet to search for parts online.
He recommends getting the spreadsheet for your car’s engine, transmission, and brakes.
“Once you’ve got the spreadsheet, you can search for the part numbers that match the part number on the spreadsheet,” he says.
(Here are some tips for finding parts at car showrooms:) Searching the spreadsheet is easy, but there’s a downside.
“A lot of people will be disappointed if they get a blank sheet because it’s all there,” Nierhaus says.
To fix the problem, you’ll need to use a 3-D scanner or a 3D printer to create a digital file of the part you’re looking for.
Nierhans recommends the Laser Engraver, a digital scanner that costs $20.
It takes only a few minutes to print out a digital version of a part.
After the part is printed, you don,t have to worry about the parts going missing.
“You can just take it out and put it in your car,” Niedhoff says, “or take it to a car showroom and get a printed version of it.”
To get the parts online, you need a digital image of the parts, and a scanner to create the digital file.
You can download the scanner at Laser Engrader.com.
Once you have the scanner, you print out the part file using a 3rd party program called 3D-to-Print.
Once printed, print it out on your computer using a scanner that has a built-in printer.
Then, cut out the parts from the part using a cutting tool.
To cut out a part, you use a ruler or the ruler that came with the part.
To create a 3d printout of the printed part, hold the part in your hand.
You then place the part into the 3D printout, and you can cut out parts as needed.
