FREIGHTLINER CENTURY PARTS

 


Freightliner Century

 

Freightliner Century is a Class 8 Heavy Duty conventional semi-truck, produced by the American manufacturer Freightliner. They are available in a variety of configurations— including: Day-cab, Mid-cab, and Sleeper-berth. They have an aerodynamic sloped hood. The Freightliner Century was originally designed for Owner-Operators, but has found extensive service as a company truck.

 

The Freightliner Century is primarily used for long distant transportation of freight in trailers.

 

Freightliner Century was manufactured in the U.S. from 1996 to 2010, when it was replaced with the Freightliner Cascadia. The Freightliner Century is still being produced in Australia.

 

In 2007, the Century was redesigned—with larger “jeweled” headlamps in a “redesigned headlight housing”, a new grill, and a new bumper.

 

The Century 120 is the model number of the three axle tractor. The Century 112 is the model number of the two axle tractor

 

TOP Four Freightliner Century Parts

 

Freightliner Century Dash Parts

 

FUNCTION

 

A dash kit is a decorative collection of parts, for customizing the dashboard of a truck. Typical kits include chrome or colored plastic parts that are screwed or glued in place.

 

Typical kits include: covers for rocker switches, key switch trim, heater control trim, radio control trim, wiper switch trim, etc.

 

Buying a kit is much cheaper than buying each decorative piece of trim separately.

 

Cost:  $200

 

Freightliner Century Headlight Housing

 

FUNCTION

 

The headlight housing contains the truck’s headlight, turn indicators, marker lights, and daylight running lights (optional). The housing forms a single component that can be replaced quickly and easily, in case of damage to the front of the truck. Also, headlight housings can be exchanged for reasons of customizing or personal style.

 


OVERVIEW

 

In 2007, the Century was redesigned—with larger “jeweled” headlamps in a “redesigned headlight housing”, a new grill, and a new bumper.

 

Externally, the “redesigned headlight housing” is the same size and shape as the “original headlight housing”. They both use the same mounting hardware and connectors—they are interchangeable. All model years of the Freightliner Century have the same headlight housing size and shape. Individual components in the housing may vary—but the housing as a whole can be exchanged with any other Century headlight housing.

 

There is a different headlight housing for the driver side and passenger side of the truck. Also, left-hand drive trucks (North America), have different headlights than right-hand drive (Australia).

 

REPLACING BULBS

 

The cost of a single headlight is approximately $32. A single headlight assembly (lamp, bracket, and wiring harness) is approximately $165. An entire replacement headlight housing (lamp, bracket, wiring harness, turn indicators, and plastic housing) cost approximately $129. If the headlight bracket is damaged, it can be cheaper to replace the entire headlight housing.

 

REPLACING THE ENTIRE HEADLIGHT HOUSING

 

Freightliner Centuries are shipped from the factory with headlight housings that match the color of the hood and trim. Replacement housings usually don’t match. Replacement headlight housings are generally black or chrome.

 

There is a growing trend to include LEDs in the headlight housings, similar to the trend in automobiles to have LEDs. LEDs are used as turn indicators, marking lights, and/or Daylight Running Lights (DRL). Factory standard OEM headlight housings (without LEDs) are still available.

 

Each headlight housing has a H7 (low beam) and a H9 (high beam), plus LEDs for running lights, turn indicators, etc. Headlight housings include a wire harness.

 

There have been attempts to replace the H7 and H9 with powerful LEDs. These systems have had very limited success in the automobile market, and virtually no acceptance by truck drivers.

 

ORDERING

 

Many ads are unclear on quantity. Some pricing is “each”. Other pricing is “pair”. It can be confusing.

 

INSTALLATION

 

Installation can be done with simple hand tools. Most drivers should have little difficulty installing a replacement headlight housing.

 


 

Freightliner Century Cabin Fan

 

FUNCTION

 

A cabin fan is a very important piece of truck equipment. It is often overlooked, but it is essential to driver comfort. It can be operated for hours without seriously draining the truck’s batteries.

 

In order to run an air conditioner, a truck needs to idle its engine, or a APU needs to be running. A fan is much cheaper to run. A fan doesn’t provide as much cooling as an air conditioner—but many times, only airflow is needed to provide moderate cooling.

 

The usual place to put a fan is on the dash board—but many drivers install one or two fans in the berth, by the driver’s feet—blowing air towards the driver’s face. Combined with open windows and vents, a berth fan can cool a resting/sleeping driver.

 

Cost:  $25

 

Freightliner Century Thermoelectric Cooler

 

FUNCTION

 

Eat healthier.  Eat cheaper. Have cool beverages.

 

A typical cooler plugs into a 12 volt cigarette lighter socket. (No ice required.) The better coolers can be laid on their back (chest style) or placed vertically (upright style). A 40 quart cooler is large enough for one or two people.

 

HEALTHY

 

It is important to keeping healthy on the road., but it is more difficult than keeping healthy at home. Good health is a combination of exercise, rest, and proper nutrition. With a cooler, it is easier to keep fresh food in the truck—and easier to balance connivence and good diet.

 

CHEAPER

 

It is much more cost effect to buy a week’s worth of food at a grocery store, than buying everything daily at a truck stop.

 

COOL

 

With a cooler that can be carried in a truck, you will never get anything “cold”—but you can keep things cool enough to prevent spoiling. Some coolers claim to get 40-degrees Fahrenheit cooler than the surrounding temperature. However, a beverage that is even a few degrees cooler than the surrounding temperature is quite pleasant.

 

Cost:  $90 ~ $110
