Default Don't buy from thepartsbin.com

Bought a bunch of parts for my truck there, one of which was an AC Delco power steering pump WITH RESERVOIR for a 1997 dodge dakota V6. I received a part without a reservoir. Since I've been busy i tried conctacting them through email, got the same lame ass reply both times. So I finally called them and guess what....AC Delco doesn't offer a PS pump with reservoir for my truck. The only thing they offer me is a refund for the part and I can order another one from a different brand. Fuck that I'll go somewhere else.

Sadly a lot of the mega/internet warehouses (and even local parts stores)have a database that is generic in nature and the descriptions and even pictures are not unique to the model. So this creates the problem that you or the parts person looks it up and reads what screen says and based on that "generic" info believes it is what you want. Auto parts anymore you need to see the actual part to know.
As Madcow said a refund is actual a good deal in this case many of those are you bought it you own it mentality....

They contacted ACDelco while I was on the phone and found ACDelco doesn't offer the part they sold to me. You'd think that when they list a part as fitting a specific vehicle they would check things like that?

yep you would think, its really frustrating when you are specific and they still send you the wrong crap, we run into that once in a while on the ag stuff, a serial number break will make a part fit or not fit, you give them your number and they still send you the wrong part.

Kid next door kept arguing with the parts guys that they gave him the wrong wheel hub for his escort. He had not removed the old bearing race from the spindle.
