Understanding Honda Part Numbers

General Parts

Function Component   Product   Modification Process Design Color Code
12 345 - 678 - 901 AB

Function - Identifies the general function in which this part is used (e.g., brakes, frame, etc.)

Component - A numbered component within the function (e.g., Left Brake Rotor, Brake Caliper)

Product - The product code for the model on which the part belongs. Some parts which are used on multiple models retain their original product code.

Modification Process Design - A code used to designate parts suppliers and revision number. The first character is believed to indicate the supplier that manufactures a part. The third is generally believed to be a revision number, which has been verified with several parts. The second is unknown and may be part of the supplier code or revision number.

Color Code - The color code for painted parts as specified in the service manual. These two characters do not appear on unpainted parts.

  • IDEA! This is not the paint code, which is usually two letters followed by three digits and optionally one letter (i.e, PB-255P for Pearl Coronado Blue)
