Default Decoding Honda part numbers

Thought this would make an interesting thread topic

In this post, I'll explain in detail how Acura and Honda part numbers work. We'll use the following part number to illustrate:

60100-S9V-A90ZZ

This is the part number for a hood for a Pilot. Now, let's see what the numbers mean:

60100 - This prefix number means that the part number is a hood. Therefore, every hood for every Honda and Acura vehicle carries this prefix as the part number. For example, 60100-S3V-A90ZZ would be a hood for an MDX, 60100-ST7-A91ZZ would fit an Integra.

Here's a few more prefix examples:

08P00- mudguards
08R01 - moonroof visor
33501 - right taillamp
04715 - rear bumper cover

S9V - This tells what kind of car it fits, or the first car it fit when originally created, in the case of parts that fit multiple cars. This is the model code for the Pilot
Some others:

S10 - CRV, 1997-2001
S6M - RSX
S2A - S2000
SCV - Element
SDA - 2003 up Accord 4 door

A90ZZ - this suffix tells detail about the part itself.

"A" means that the part is for the North American market. Japan spec parts would carry a "J".

The "90" or "01" can refer to a manufacturer code, or model year. A hood for a 99-01 TL is 60100-S0K-A90ZZ, one for an 02-03 would be 60100-S0K-A91ZZ.

The "ZZ", which some parts don't have, refers to the fact that the part is unpainted. Painted parts have codes like "ZA" or "ZC", or other letter combinations.

Default FLASH BACK!!!

I feel your pain, Tim!

Years ago I worked for a couple different aftermarket auto parts manufacturers. I researched and wrote the parts catalogs you see in the binder bins at the stores. My specialty was imported cars/trucks.

It IS scary how the numbers start to stick in your head after a while, and you can rattle off part numbers for specific parts without much thought. I always liked working with the Honda microfiche. It was much more consistant that some of the others!

Ah...........the good ol' days.....!!!

So YOU'RE the one I can blame!

Most screwy car manufacturer I ever worked with was Jaguar. But, then again, I've always loved a challenge.....

YES! ANY British manufacturer is TERRIBLE! (I worked for Lucas, and spent plenty of time in european catalogues.) The Japanese manufacturers seemed to have the best fiche, and it was amazing to see how many parts were used in so many different models.

Though some of the fun stuff was researching New Old Stock for vintage cars. I had a few restorers on the east coast that called looking for a specific old part number. It had been superceded so many times nobody new what was in the box at our warehouses. I'd go back through all these catalogs from the 1940's and up, tracking the part through all the supersessions. I found plenty of really cool parts for these guys that where new, in-the-box, but sitting on the shelf for 30 or 40 years! Lucas Lamps, Guages, Girling brake parts, all kinds of stuff. Mostly old Jag, Austin, Triumph, MG, BMW and the occasional Ferrari or Lamborgini part. Now THAT was the fun part of the job!

16720 is a fuel hose.....engine related parts sometimes have a center 3 digits that start with the letter P......

Unfortunately in my database I can't match either complete number to any US production vehicle.

Could you kindly tell, what is the meaning of each letter in the code?
What do the figures and letters in the 3 part of the number mean? for example 003

I've never been able to place any actual designation on the center 3 digits when it's a P code, other than the fact that it is engine related. It's not related to any specific drivetrain, per se.....

The last numbers refer to a manufacturer production code, just an internal Honda reference, since there are no letters that follow the numbers.

it means that 3 last figres and letters are the manufacturer code of Japan, England and so on

the numbers which I've written above - are the numbers of the one part for the righ-wheel Acord? but one is for japanese market, and another for english//
for schemes it's the same part, but they differ inly in numbers.
It's intersting to know can be used the details from different markets for the cars from different markets.
for example I've found break disk

Possibly, but not always. If the part number were to end in:

A00 - USA market
J00 - Japan market
C00 - Canada market

That doesn't mean that the parts, however, are exclusive TO that market. If the part number were to end in an 004, that would generally mean either the 4th vendor to supply a part, or it could mean a part supercession, or just a difference in the part itself as opposed to say an 003.
