Full Answer

When selecting a salvage yard, it's important to find one large enough to have the parts needed. Acura is the smaller luxury division of Honda Motor Co., Ltd., and being a small luxury car division, there aren't as many Acuras on the road or in salvage yards as many other vehicles. However, some Acura and Honda models share the same parts, so it is best to consult a car part index before heading to the salvage yard.

When using an online salvage yard index, such as Riteway Auto Parts, users must first select Acura under Make. Then, users can search by model year, model and part type. Riteway is a nationwide search engine and may provide users with parts located at great distances away.

Some salvage yards, called "pull a part" yards, require users to bring their own tools to remove parts from junked vehicles. Other salvage yards have professional mechanics on hand to pull and inspect parts for customers. Some go as far as providing limited warranties for used parts.
