Find the Part You Want with More Ways to Search

ShowMeTheBrakes has several ways to find the parts you need. There are three ways to find a part based on the vehicle:


Standard vehicle information including the model year, manufacturer, model and engine


The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) issued to your vehicle by the manufacturer

License plate

The current state license plate number issued to your vehicle

Once you've found your vehicle, you can search for parts based on categories including brake drums and rotors, brake pads and shoes, brake hydraulics, and brake hardware. Click on the column heading, and you can sort and filter the results. This lets you view only components that fit on the front or rear of the vehicle, see only a specific part type, like rotors or parking brake cables, or limit results based on application information, like the vehicle trim level.

Looking for parts from one or more brands? Click the "Brand" column and you can select the brands you want to look at, or use the "Supplier" option to see all the brands offered by a single manufacturer.
