Auto Wreckers In Bangkok Area

Recommended Posts

I have a Suzuki Caribian 4X4, 1995 model. I like the vehicle, but they are not popular with farangss due to poor ride and small engine size etc. I would like to get hold of a spare car for parts.

Does anyone know of a wreckers yard where they sell whole wrecks or parts for these models?

Some mention Bang Na Trat highway. How about closer to Bangkok?

Thanks.

With appologies ahead of time, but I just can't resist it, have you tried most anywhere on Sukumvit?

Between Thanon Banthat Thong and Chulalongkorn U is an area, whose name escapes me, that is full of secondhand parts dealers. It covers several square blocks so you can't miss it. If you are heading down Rama something from Silom direction and turn right into Banthat Thong you will find the area behind the right side of the street. You can surely find what you are looking for there. For new parts and sometimes second hand go to the Worachak area near Chinatown.

OK, back to serious stuff:  check out this map site,

It's Pra Ram IV, or Rama IV in English, you're thinking of, headed towards Hua Lamphong station.

There are a couple of people that specialise in Suzuki's in this area.   IF you ask about down there they will put you on to them.  One Guy's name is Heer Sur!  He has almost everything mechanical.  Diffs/axles freewheeling hubs, gearboxes, transfer cases, PTO.s winches engines and the like.

PM me about nissan diesel engine conversions and others that make a real car out of the humble Suzuki.

Not specializing in Audi and not in Bangkok proper but outside of Bangkok some ways north there is a well kept yard that specializes in European models.. It's been a while so I'll have to do some research on directions etc. as I just know where it is and I drive there..
