Daihatsu Hijet/Piaggio Porter Parts Help

Post by Globe-trotter on Tue Aug 12, 2014 11:34 am

Hi everyone

I have just joined the forum to ask a couple of questions and I hope someone on here will be able to help me
I want to know if Parts from Italy are the same for UK Vehicles or which Parts are the same or can be used, I have already contact Piaggio UK and they are unsure so I wondered if someone on here will be able to clarity and give me the correct information.

Thank you

-year
-engine
-van or pickup?

Yeah they are the same, obviously parts from Italy will be for left hand drive vehicles though so bear that in mind.

most parts are the same i would think
only things like headlights/dashboard/ are different because of lhd/rhd

the piaggio porter is just a rebadged hijet so most porter parts will fit.
i order my parts with piaggio..because daihatsu doesnt seem to be verry helpfull
and the parts have to come from japan what takes an eternity.

Just to be picky, it's the other way round - S85 Hijets were made by Piaggio and badged Daihatsu.  Very Happy

floorpan, front panel are different, radiator is on the the other side so pipe work should be different, most parts that are available from ex Piaggio dealers, subaru and Isuzu dealers as they have got accounts to i motors Birmingham
