Exterior Car Parts
The Smallest Auto Parts Make The Biggest Difference
It doesn't take a lot of money or a lot of time to make great improvements to the exterior look and function of your car, truck, van or SUV. A few easy additions are part of NAPA AUTO PARTS exterior catalog: emblems, reflectors and deflectors. Replace or enhance your vehicle's emblem with a new Ford, BMW or more symbol options, or change out any cracked/cloudy reflectors that line your vehicle. Another quick improvement are easy-to-install wind, rain and bug deflectors that make driving with the windows cracked a lot more peaceful.
Weather stripping is a simple but effect automotive part that keeps your vehicle air and water tight. Although weather strips on doors, sunroofs, trunks and hatchbacks should last for many years, over time sun and moisture will take a toll causing cracks and splits. Rain and noise intrusions will require at least a partial replacement of your car's weather stripping. Once you pinpoint the exact location of the leak, replace the entire door or window stripping for a continuous tight fit. Even a great quality seal needs nothing more than a push-on application to seat each long piece into the grooves of the frame. Also, like the maintenance measures taken for your tires, dashboard and steering wheel, make sure to clean and protect your weather stripping regularly.
