Yes we can! It’s not just a gimmicky slogan, we’ve expanded our product range to cover parts for all the leading automotive brands in the UK and Europe. If we don’t keep it in stock, we can find it from our extensive supplier network filled with OE parts.

We’re based in sunny West Yorkshire, with our distribution centre and headquarters in Dewsbury. More recently we’ve opened a second warehouse and trade counter in Leeds. If you want more information, check out our contact page.

On our site, you can enter your car registration number, vehicle make and model, or use the search box at the top of the page. If you use the search box, you can check the product name, item code, or OE (original equipment) number and if we have it, you’ll find it.

Some manufacturers will fit more than one part to a specific vehicles even if it’s the same make, models, year and engine size. If you want to make sure your part will fit 100% correctly, please check all the details in the details and compatible vehicles tab on the product page.


If you’re ever unsure if a part will fit your vehicle and want some added confirmation, you can call us or drop us an email at any time, we’re always happy to help.

When you replace brake discs, it’s recommended that you replace them in pairs so that they will wear evenly. As such we sell most of our brake discs in pairs, but it may come out on your invoice as 2 discs depending on how they’re packaged.


We sell our brake pads in front or rear sets, so when you buy one kit it will have enough pads for two discs. The product page should tell you which fitment position the pads are for.

Yes we can! Sometimes a part might not be listed on our website yet, so it could be as simple as picking it off the shelf and getting it sent out to you. Sometimes however, we might have to do some searching for the part, so the best thing to do is drop us an email with the following details:

  • Your vehicles registration number
  • The part you’re looking for
  • Any specific details about your vehicle that may be unique
  • Your preferred contact method

If you send us all this, we’ll get back in touch with you as soon as we’ve found the part to organise payment and delivery.

Some items will come with additional fittings, but this will be specified on the item paid under the description. If you’re ever unsure, you can always give us a call or drop us an email and we’ll get back to you with an answer.

Most of our spark plugs and glow plugs are sold individually unless the page listing states otherwise in the description. If you have any doubts you can always drop us an email or give us a call, we’re always happy to help.

If you have a question regarding your warranty, or want to check if your part is still under warranty you can send us an email with your question, and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

Nope! All of our parts are brand new, straight from the supplier. No second hand parts here.

We don’t sell used car parts, for road safety it’s best to use new parts for your car regardless of how old it is. We know you might think it, given how cheap some of our parts are, but they really are all brand new!

At Autovaux Car Parts we supply both spurious parts and Original Equipment. When we say spurious, we don’t mean “fake” or “illegitimate”, we just mean they don’t have the vehicle manufacturers logo on the part. But we’ve made sure all of our parts either meet OE specifications or beat them, to make sure you get the best quality car parts in the UK.

From time to time we will get complete engines in stock, but we probably won’t list them on the website. If you’re interested in buying one, you’ll need to contact us directly to see what we can do and to organise delivery.

We sell all the parts you could need for a service kit, engine oil, filters, gaskets, seal rings, brake pads, brake discs, and more.


But we don’t currently sell many packs pre-made for service. At the moment we have a selection of Vauxhall service kits made up on the website, but you can contact us to find out how we can make your next service cheaper.

At the moment we don’t stock any parts for electric cars, but keep an eye out! Our range is ever growing and changing, just like the automotive industry. We work hard to bring you the latest and greatest car parts in the UK, and that means parts for electric cars in the future.
