COLMAR, PA--(Marketwire - Aug 23, 2011) - Dorman Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: DORM) has just released over 75 new products in August, featuring Formerly "Dealer Only" parts that were previously unavailable in the Aftermarket. Technicians now have the convenience of sourcing Plastic Backed Mirror Glass, Radiator Fan Relays, Integrated Door Latch Actuators and ABS Tone Rings from their preferred Aftermarket parts supplier. In addition to our Formerly "Dealer Only" parts, 200 late-model Brake Cables, Wheel Cylinders and Hoses were released this month from our ever expanding Brake line.

New this month are 36 Plastic Backed Mirror Glass SKUs covering Chrysler, Ford, GM, Mazda and Volkswagen vehicles. The Plastic Backed Mirror Glass is a direct replacement and provides a cost saving alternative to replacing the entire mirror assembly. Simply snap out the old, broken glass and replace it with the new Dorman part which comes complete with a backing plate for snap-in replacement.

Seven Integrated Door Latch Actuator SKUs covering over 14 million Toyotas have been added to our Door Lock Actuator line. With the Dorman part, the latch and the motor are built into the housing -- making one unified part.
