The Part Search function searches against both Wilson and cross reference part numbers.
There are three types of searches possible, depending on whether you know the exact part number needed or if you are trying to determine the correct one from incomplete information. Choose the desired type by clicking the round radio button next to the name.
Exact Match: Search for an exact string of characters entered, all characters must match in the order entered with no additional characters. Best if you know your part number in full and exactly.
Starts With: Search for any part number that starts with the characters entered. Results will include exact match results as above PLUS any part numbers that begin with that sequence, including those with additional characters after the string input. This is good to use to get families of part numbers with same base or beginning sequence of characters.
Contains: Search for the string of characters keyed in, against all part numbers in the system. Any number with the string of characters in the order entered, anywhere in the part number will be listed as a result. It will include part numbers with additional characters before and/or after the string searched. This will generally yield large lists of results and is useful for when you cannot read the whole part number of the original unit.
Before or after selecting search type, key in characters to search. Special characters are allowed; however, they are not relevant to the search. For instance 90014166 will work as exact match to 90-01-4166, but you can type in either way and it will work. As you type the system will create drop down of potential choices based on prior characters. You can select from that list to reduce key strokes or simply keep typing.
Once part number is keyed in, press “ENTER” or click “SEARCH” to execute. If the search results in only one result, the system will bring up that Part Details Page. If there are multiple results or no results, you will be brought to a results page.
This Application Search section allows search for part numbers based on vehicle or equipment information. To begin you must select a Product family from the first drop down. Then an Application must be chosen from the second drop down. All subsequent drop downs are optional and flexible.
Once Product & Application are selected, the remaining fields can be populated or left as “All…” depending on the information known. The more choices made the narrower the list of results will be. In addition, as a choice is made in one field it will filter the other remaining fields based on hits. So choosing a Make will reduce or limit the choices under Model to those applicable to that Make.
Click “SEARCH” once criteria are as you need to generate results. Click “RESET” to clear choices and start over.
UNIT ATTRIBUTE SEARCH
The Unit Attribute Search enables you to find parts based key attributes of the product. The first field, Product, is the only one required. Once the product family is chosen then additional search criteria will become available, based on the product family. All fields are optional and will filter and limit the results of subsequent choices. The more information selected, the narrower the list of results. Once criteria are set as desired, click on “SEARCH” to execute and generate a list of results. Click “RESET” to clear all and start over.
