Original Equipment Parts
In the world of automotive parts, an OEM (original equipment manufacturer) part designates a replacement part made by the manufacturer of the original part. OEM refers to the company that originally manufactured the product. Therefore, the OEM designation means the part is the original part used when building and selling the new vehicle.

Did You Know?
While it's a popular selling technique among generic parts houses, non-OEM parts are NOT "essentially the same as those sold by manufacturers". Non-OEM parts bypass essential quality control inspections that ensure parts meet original design specifications for safety and performance. In some cases, non-OEM parts are distributed by generic parts houses AFTER they were rejected by the OEM. Also, because non-OEM parts aren't identical to manufacturer specifications, their use can present a wide range of liability issues for the operator, including jeopardizing human safety, voided warranties, and a reduced equipment life cycle.
