As we all know, ford tends to change part numbers from time to time, so is there a reputable source, other than the parts department, to find out what past numbers are for what?
I can't find a part number as it's not in any system, even though I've got a box with the part numbed on it
It's just infuriating
Thanks

Often ebay sellers list the equivalent part numbers of items, but dunno where they get their info ftom. Why not try an eBay search, including the part number you've got + 'Ford' and drill down thro' the results?

Hi

 

Do the same with google, type part No. add Ford and it is surprising what obscure entries it can throw up. Parts are often identified with two numbers, one is just numbers. The second is longer with numbers and letters and occasionally moulded into component this is often more difficult to cross reference.

 

Out of curiosity add number on here and let’s see what can be found.

The finis numbers are more generic. and can cover various models. The longer engineering numbers, which are the ones with a mix of letters and numbers are very specific to an exact car.

 

There are online engineering number decoding websites, but make sure you look for European rather than American sites as the engineering numbering systems are different.

 

The typical mk3 engineering number starts with 1S71 (from memory) and typical mk3 ST only parts can start with 2S71.


You can put your vehicle info at the bottom of your posts to give details to help others know what you drive :)

To further elaborate on this, S7 means Mondeo.  the first digit is the year the part was introduced. At least that's what I'm told. Parts changed in the 2003 facelift are 3S7x. There's the odd 4S7x in my car too but nothing newer. Makes sense. Except of course the base car stuff that never changed are all 1S7x, despite the Mk3 being introduced in 2000. Perhaps it's model year rather than actual real years.

 

The last of the four digits refers to the department, but I can't remember what they are. Much of the time it seems to be 1 anyway.

 

Another code you occasionally see is CD132, Ford's internal name for the Mk3 Mondeo. It's often seen on parts provided by third party manufacturers, like the head unit.
