ElantraClub - For Elantra Owners and Enthusiasts _ Hyundai News and Views _ Ask Parts Guy Nick

Posted by: elantragt Oct 10 2011, 03:33 PM

I thought this might be a good idea for an ongoing thread.

Nick is a Hyundai Parts guy and he can help you with part and accessory numbers and other information. Ask away!

Note: Nick isn't on the board all the time so be patient with him.

We have something similar with our local Subie board. I think it's a great idea!

Great idea, my local dealer parts depot sucks.

Glad I can help guys! I keep this forum up in the background while at work and I've set up email alerts so I'll be notified if someone posts to this thread. Looking forward to answering questions smile.gif

Are you Hyundai-specific, or do you handle Kia as well? In the not-too-distant future, I'm going to have to think about doing the timing belt on the wife's Rio.

I'm A Hyundai and Volvo parts guy at work, but my dealer group includes KIA as well as FoMoCo, GM, Nissan, and Toyota. I can make a quick phone call and get KIA info, but it may be best for me to stick to Hyundai for the purposes of this forum.

Edit: After re-reading the above post I feel that I may have sounded like a little bit of a douche. What I ment to say was: Yes, I'll gladly help you out, but I don't have direct access to a KIA parts catalogue because Hyundai and KIA keep their parts operations separate from each other. I'll just need the last 8 numbers of your VIN and I can outsource your request to one of my unsuspecting co-workers at the KIA store smile.gif

What year? Many years use the same components as the same yera accent.

No worries. I don't have the VIN handy, but it's an '03 built before the changeover in '02 (don't remember what all that entailed, but of course I get asked almost every time I get parts for it).
