The service parts identification label has been developed and placed on the vehicle to aid in identifying parts and options originally installed on the vehicle. This is extremely helpful when purchasing a used vehicle, or restoring a used vehicle to its original state. The label is located on the underside of the luggage compartment lid on sedans, and on the inner right rear quarter panel of wagons.
