It did not come as a major surprise to us to hear that certain part types are difficult to find on ShowMeTheParts.com. If you are looking for a filter or brake pad the category search is obvious; it is Filters or Brake Pads and Shoes. If you are looking for a “Transmission Oil Cooler” it gets more challenging. While we have worked hard over the last year to reduce the number of categories by 50%, it still did not provide the best user experience.
After you pick your part type, and the engine if necessary, now you will get a list of parts matching that part type and everything else in that category.
Looking for the Connector, just click on that part type and your list is updated to that specific part you need.
It is really that simple.

ShowMeTheParts helped create a cataloging solution for Amsted Seals and Forming. Most aftermarket catalogs use Year/Make/Model search options but what about when that doesn’t apply? Amsted Seals and Forming had cataloging needs for the Heavy Duty sector.
They take the part number from the original equipment and cross reference with the aftermarket parts for that OE. This insures the part number is competitor comparable. This interchange tools helps user find the correct Heavy Duty tool for their needs. Our cataloging can be customized for companies without applications. Search by competitor part number, original part number, or dimension. This cataloging solution even allows for search by attribute like diameter.
“Amsted appreciates the ready made yet flexible cross reference system ShowMeTheParts provides for our customers.” said an Amsted representative. ShowMeTheParts can create catalogs that can be customized for companies without applications.

Your parts fit more than Cars, Trucks, and Powersport! That is why we provide a “Non-Automotive” look up to aftermarket manufacturers like you. Let us show you why our proprietary, non-auto look up is trusted by the largest retailers and manufacturers across the country.
Until recently, the industry standard Vehicle tables only covered Cars, Trucks, and Powersport vehicles. There are many parts that fit more than that. Many times, Year/Make/Model search simply doesn’t work for some part type segments. Our “Non-Automotive” search is customizable to your specifications and is easy to work with for you and the users.
What is “Non-Automotive”? Under this category you can find replacement parts that fit Marine, Industrial, Recreational, and Lawn & Garden to name a few. By having this category available, it allows you to list parts from your warehouse in the all possible locations within the catalog. This allows users, novice and seasoned, to easily find what they are looking for.
These parts are unique listings, but our category makes it easier to find them. By utilizing our “Non-Automotive” catalog category you can get your aftermarket parts in front of the right users. Contact Sales@VerticalDev.com to get started!
“Where can I buy the part?!” – Is a question our support staff no longer needs to answer. ShowMeTheParts is excited to announce the rollout of our new BuyNow program. For the first time ever, we are connecting our highly qualified userbase to online retailers to purchase their parts.
As you are likely aware, the Auto Parts industry is a few years behind many other industries when it comes to product data the average online parts seller can use to create online listings. So, you have a choice to make… head out to the warehouse with a notepad and camera OR find the right partner who’s already done the work of making Auto Parts data readily available in a usable format.
While ShowMeTheParts continues to work every day to be the most up to date aftermarket automotive parts catalog available, we are also working on making the website safe and easy to use. Recently we introduced our specialty market sites ShowMeTheExhaust, ShowMeTheBrakes, and ShowMeTheFilters. These sites make it even easier and faster to find the exact parts you are looking for.
As you probably noticed, when you now visit ShowMeTheParts that you are prompted to log in. Why do we need that? As we get requests for brands that are currently not listed on ShowMeTheParts, they request user information to justify listing their parts in our catalog. By being able to go back to the brand and say for example, 65% of our users are technicians, 25% are counter people and 10% are do-it-yourselfers, it shows the brands that the part listings are going to exactly who they want it to.
Our users are extremely important to us. We want to be sure you have a fast and easy experience when you search the ShowMeTheParts catalogs. When we know who is looking for what, we can reach out to more brands to get the parts you want. We will never sell or misuse your information you have trusted us with.
We encourage you to reach out to us if ever find a brand we are missing! Contact us here to let us know if we are missing brands that you’d like to see.
