All starters and alternators are distinguished from the purchase channels mainly in these categories:
- a) Original parts: mainly from OEMs and 4S shops, with packaging with brand labels, such as Volvo starters and alternators. This headlight is produced by Mitsubishi, but whether it is on the starter or the starter The Mitsubishi logo is on the packaging;
- b) Original parts: mainly from manufacturers (such as Mitsubishi, Delco, Denso, Mahle, Bosch, etc.), which are actually a kind of auxiliary parts, with the manufacturer’s packaging and logo (only because the manufacturer’s For some reasons, it’s not included in the OEM’s equipment purchase list, so the OEM’s logo cannot be used), such as buying a Volvo starter, which is produced by Mitsubishi, but both on the starter and on the starter’s packaging are only Mitsubishi. Logo without Volvo (occasionally there are logos with Volvo but have been worn out), this is a good product with high quality and low price;
- c) Off-line parts: mainly from 4S shops, usually original parts with very new condition, but without packaging, and there may be some functional defects in some aspects, which are difficult to distinguish from pure disassembly;
- d) Brand-name partssub-factory partsTaiwan-parts: There are many names, but they are actually sub-factory parts, mainly from various large and small manufacturers. The quality is uneven, and the price may vary greatly. Some manufacturers may It used to be the supplier of the OEM, but for some reasons it is currently excluded from the purchase list. And some manufacturers may produce Sanwu products (can be understood as fakes), and the quality is completely unguaranteed;
- e) Purely dismantled parts: mainly from OEMs and the dismantling market of accident vehicles. For example, if the OEM supporting too many engines has left too many starters and alternators (or refitting other styles of starters/alternators), they are replaced. Then the replaced parts will become purely dismantled parts when circulating to the auto parts market. Some pure unpacked parts whose condition is almost brand new can be bought at a lower price as original parts (but without packaging);
- f) Disassembled parts: mainly from the market of accidentally dismantled vehicles or unit collective maintenance. For example, a car owner hits a tree while driving, and the entire vehicle is scrapped due to severe damage to the engine of the vehicle and severe damage to the appearance of the entire vehicle, and then enters the parts market through the process of insurance company → auction company → accident car buyer → complete vehicle disassembly. The fineness and quality of the parts are very different. Some parts can be close to the fineness and quality of purely disassembled parts, while the other parts are sold after repairing and refurbishing in a small workshop at a very low cost. There may be major safety hazards and failure rates.
