Anyone know any Subaru auto parts salvage yards in the SF Bay Area / Silicon Valley? Looking for a plastic fog light cover for an Outback 2003 VDC 3L H6 among other things, and not planning on paying the dealership $49.99 for one.

Thanks NV Zeno, really appreciate it. Only wish it was possible to know if they had the parts in stock, but I guess that's not going to be possible at a pick-n-pull place - though their prices are rock bottom. I'll try calling them. If I can buy the part for a reasonable price from an online store, I'll save the time for this one, but the salvage yards would be a great value for more expensive parts.

Unfortunately, the Pick-N-Pulls in San Jose don't typically have many Subarus, if any.

I too would love to know if there is a Subaru-specific parts yard in the SF Bay Area, since it would be far more convenient than gambling by going to the Pick-N-Pull yards only to find that there aren't any matching Subarus...

It may be beneficial to "expand your horizon" a little. PnP has a couple of huge yards in Stockton, about an hour's drive from San Jose. And there's always Subes in the Reno and Carson City yards (farther away still).

Sometimes I've found what I needed at some of the other Norcal yards, but it took a bit of travelling with some luck thrown in.

Just my 2 bucks

There's also, www.car-part.com which is an internet service subscribed to by junkyards all over the country. You can sort by distance or price. Pretty handy.

*edit-- I noticed that they added a VIN lookup which is pretty neat. They also do cross referencing between multiple years which is really handy.
