Some options for finding used Mazda parts include salvage yards and suppliers that sell used parts online. Self-service vehicle junkyards feature a wide range of used parts at a low cost. Enlist the help of online Mazda forum members for your model to access faraway parts, or consider asking for help from friends or family members to find the used parts you need.
Compare the prices of the parts you need on various websites to find fairly priced parts. Craigslist features auto parts sold by owners and provide photos of listed parts. However, parts on the site are available as-is, meaning you may not get your money back or exchange the parts you buy.
Public auction listings in a local area are a good place to find a parts car, which you can buy and use as a donor vehicle for Mazda parts. You can also get a spare car from a salvage auction, although you may need to enlist the help of a broker to purchase such a vehicle, as mandated in most U.S. states. Find out what an auto junkyard specializes in to determine whether you can find Mazda parts. Most yards organize salvages by make and provide a database to help you find the location of the cars you need.
