Dorman Announces September Product Releases

More than 200 new motor vehicle parts were released, including an engine heater hose assembly, this month’s featured OE FIX.


Dorman Products, Inc. announced the release of more than 200 new motor vehicle parts that the company says join an ever-expanding catalog of 118,000+ aftermarket solutions.


This month’s featured OE FIX is a new engine heater hose assembly, which it says adds to the company’s coverage for millions of vehicles on the road today. This latest addition (626-335) offers a more durable aluminum T-connector in place of the leak-prone plastic connector used in the original equipment hose design on hundreds of thousands of Chrysler and Dodge vehicles, Dorman says. It comes complete with the protective sheathing, clamps, and routing bracket designed to match the fit and form of the original equipment assembly.

In addition, four new aftermarket kits containing pre-packaged assortments of hub bolts are being introduced. Two hub rotor and caliper bracket bolt kits (966-002 and 966-003), designed to fit almost one million hardworking Ford Transit vans, contain all the single-use, torque-to-yield bolts that must be replaced during every brake service, Dorman says. Also, two hub and bearing mounting bolt sets (926-171 and 926-172) are being released, designed to fit a combined 3+ million Chrysler, Dodge, and Ram trucks and SUVs. All the corrosion-resistant carbon steel bolts in these sets are engineered to match the OE bolt design to provide specified clamping force, the company adds.


Also introduced are three new engine air intake hoses (696-417, 696-409, and 696-450) are engineered to fit a combined 2 million General Motors and Ford vehicles on the road today.

Dorman announces these other highlights from its September new product release:

  • Four new windshield wiper transmission and motor assemblies. These solutions include both the windshield wiper motor and the transmission and linkage as one unit, because replacing the entire assembly in one job reduces labor time and ensures accurate reassembly. The four new products cover a combined 5 million Ford (602-306AS and 602-040AS), Jeep (602-105AS), and General Motors (602-221AS) vehicles in operation today.
  • A valve cover kit (264-939) engineered to match the fit and function of the original equipment on 7 million Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram models.
  • A third brake light assembly (923-127) designed to replace a broken or malfunctioning factory light while reusing the existing rear-facing camera on 300,000 2019-2018 Ford Transit vans.
  • A axle shaft replacement kit (630-011) and a right inner intermediate axle shaft (630-457) engineered to match the fit and function of the factory axle shafts on a combined total of 3.5+ million Ram 1500 and Ram 1500 classic trucks.
  • Additional new replacement parts designed for heavy-duty trucks, new products include two pressurized coolant reservoirs: 603-5144, designed for select 2007-05 International 8600 SBA trucks with Caterpillar engines, and 603-5124, designed for select 2019-17 International LT625 trucks with specified Cummins engines.
