Exclamation PT Owners BEWARE of Part Stores!!!

Hi All,

An experience I recently encountered in Colorado Springs brought you this message..

Auto Zone, Oreilly's and Advance Auto Parts don't have matching part least for an 05 Turbo H.O.

None of them recognize the Dual Mass Flywheel (DMF).
Axle seals for the half shafts are wrong, (needed to be measured and looked up in a huge book)
Half shafts are incorrect also.
Lower right motor mount is wrong too, (went to dealer and they too gave me the wrong one...had to show them the difference between mine and theirs)
Nearly all other needed parts, Master Cylinder, Real Main Seal, Struts needed to be shipped from suppliers.

If someone else comes in for these parts they will leave with the wrong ones and each part store said...there nothing we can do, it's the system and the aftermarket manufacturers.

So Beware MAKE SURE you get/order what YOU need not what THEY think you need.
