Toyota Electronic Parts Catalog Now Available to Independent Repair Shops

For the first time, Toyota is making its full Electronic Parts Catalog (EPC) available online to independent repair shops, the company announced.

The Toyota EPC will provide shops with the same parts information available to Toyota dealers. Access to the Toyota EPC, as well as electronic ordering, is available free through Toyota’s Web site at www.toyotapartsandservice.com.

Access to the Toyota EPC is available to shops only when sponsored by a participating Toyota STAR Elite dealer.

Toyota says its EPC gives repairers access to:

• VIN-specific searches that help reduce error rates when identifying and ordering parts.

• Access to the same parts data Toyota dealers have, including detailed diagrams and illustrations to find exact parts numbers.

• Data updated frequently by Toyota.

• Ability to locate, estimate and order parts anytime, directly through a Toyota STAR Elite dealer.

To get access to the EPC, contact your Toyota dealer to see if they participate in the STAR Elite program, and tell them you’re interested in access to the Toyota EPC.

To locate a Toyota STAR Elite dealer, visit www.toyotapartsandservice.com and click on the “Dealer Locator” button in the upper right.

To try a hands-on demonstration of the Toyota EPC, visit the Toyota Genuine Parts both at the Congress of Automotive Repair and Service booth C9001 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center Nov. 5-7.
