DeLorean Part Identification Manual (binder)

The DeLorean Parts Identification Manual is a piece of original factory literature that shows exploded views of the vehicle and identifies each part by name and number.

Value as Documentation[edit | edit source]

  • Exploded views make it easier to see the car is put together, so you can disassemble and reassemble it.
  • Helps owners identify parts by name, thus making it easier to converse with other owners about.
  • Helps when ordering parts by identifying their part numbers, which are often listed on vendor sites to ensure you are getting the part you need.

Left and Right Handed Part Numbers[edit | edit source]

The last digit of each part number identifies which side of the car it belongs on. Part numbers ending in an even number are for the right hand side, while parts ending in odd numbers are for the left hand side[1]. Left and right are defined as being from the point of view of someone standing behind the car looking toward it, as you would expect.

Availability[edit | edit source]

The Parts Manual is available in printed form from many vendors. The DMCNews website also has a downloadable version as multiple PDF files.

Organization[edit | edit source]

The Parts Manual is divided into ten sections, numbered 0 through 9, with each covering a different part of the car. It begins with a table of contents, a list of abbreviations used in the part descriptions, a numerical index of part numbers and their catalog groups, and three Parts Bulletins.

Pages are numbered by their section, subsection and group at the top left of left-hand pages and top-right of right-hand pages. The left page is a table of part numbers, descriptions, quantities, remarks and a figure number that matches the exploded diagram on the right page.
