Question about 2006 Ford Explorer
I would say check several sites on the Web. Sometimes the photos are representative of the part and are not the actual piece. Be sure you entered the correct engine and year in the parts search.
Check out Ebay for the parts (you will be surprised) and I use several major parts stores like Autozone, Oreillys, Advance, and so forth.
You can order on the Web and get store pickup on some sites, saving shipping costs. Some of the sites will actually show you which stores have the part in inventory. Being able to pick up the part allows you to go out in the parking lot and pop the hood and hold the part, like the new tensioner, up to the motor to eyeball it.
If the vehicle is not on the road, I take digital photos of the part and print them out so when I get to the Autoparts store I do not have to rely on memory and I can show the Autoparts clerk the correct part that I need. It gives him the opportunity to help me better. It also gives me a before picture for reassembly, making some difficult jobs easier.
