You wont know, however most scrapyards give you a couple of weeks garentee on parts, they do here anyway. If you can find out the history of the car it's coming out of, even better, but there's gonna be a risk in buying from a scrappy anyway. I got a Gearbox for my uncles Vauxhall Cavalier from a Scrapyard a few years ago, it cost me £50, whereas a recon unit would have cost nearer £500!
