BEFORE REMOVING THE PART

Check the Prices with our friendly staff

  • Before arriving at Dapto Pick a Part, Identify the car make and model, and double check that the replacement part you have targeted bears the same part number
  • Bring your own hand or battery operated tools and trailer
  • No mains-powered tools allowed
  • There are no hydraulic or air tools available onsite, and we do not allow oxy torches or angle grinders
  • When removing tough parts, a lubricating spray (WD40) may also assist
  • A long tubular metal handle placed over the short handle of your tools can provide added power
  • Bringing a flashlight with you will also help
  • Wear closed toe shoes, jeans/overalls, leather rigger gloves and wrap around safety goggles
  • We advise that you wear clothing you know will resist corrosives (work overalls)
  • If in doubt, check out car manufacturers and car clubs, who often publish lists of interchangeable parts
  • If you are recovering a heavy part, be smart and bring two people
  • Also check out car-repair manuals held by your local library

Feel free to use the trolleys and wheelbarrows that are available, at no charge
