Dorman Products, Inc. announced the release of 400 new motor vehicle parts in January, on top of the 4,000 new products it released in 2022.
New this month is an OE FIX liftgate handle trim kit (97943) for more than half a million 2013-2019 Nissan Pathfinder SUVs. The tailgate trim on many of those vehicles tends to crack easily in cold weather or from collision impact, and the chrome veneer can become unsightly when it peels off. This Dorman tailgate applique is designed to be used with the existing hatch release button or backup camera if so equipped and can restore the appearance of the tailgate trim without purchasing unnecessary additional replacement parts, according to Dorman.
Also released this month are two new heater hose assemblies, 626-763 for 2011-2014 Ford F-150 and Lincoln Mark LT pickup trucks, and 626-752 for 2010-2013 Ford Transit vans, that offer more than a combined one million repair opportunities, says Dorman. They include the clamps, brackets and protective coverings.
The company says it is also adding to its growing lineup of loaded brake backing plates with new coverage for almost 2 million 2011-2012 Cadillac, Chevrolet, and GMC vehicles (926-267). Dorman adds the loaded backing plates are pre-assembled with the components required to make a complete parking brake repair and are designed to eliminate the frustrating, unpredictable work required to replace individual corroded components.
Dorman says other new product highlights for January 2023 include:
- An OE FIX flexible stainless-steel braided fuel line for 2006-2009 Chevrolet Equinox and Pontiac Torrent vehicles (819-813). They are stainless steel over flexible PTFE tubing, made to specific length, with new brackets and factory connectors for the easiest possible installation, according to the company.
- Two new hub rotor and caliper bracket bolt kits designed to fit more than a combined one million Ford vehicles. The hardware in these convenient kits (966-005 and 966-006) is engineered to match the original equipment bolt design and stretch when torqued to provide specified clamping force.
