Toyota and Lexus have now made it easier to gain access to their OEM EPC’s allowing shops to access this information directly saving a phone call to their local parts department trying to figure out the part they are looking for. Users can visit https://parts.toyota.com or https://parts.lexus.com. Both sites allow the user to input a VIN to pull up the correct parts schematic.
If the part is missing from any of the three estimating systems (Audatex, CCC and Mitchell), please submit a DEG INQUIRY with the missing information so it can be added to the database.
The estimating databases are all intended to be used as a GUIDE ONLY – it is important to remember that the auto body professional performing the repair is in a position to thoroughly inspect, diagnose and identify the methodology and their unique cost of the vehicle damage repair.
