Class code 8046 is used for employees that work for a retail or wholesale store that specializes in automobile parts and accessories, not otherwise classified. This classification would include drivers, as well as those working within the store location itself. Examples of products that are typically sold under this class code are oil filters, batteries, spark plugs, tires, gaskets, fuel pumps, carburetors, ignition parts, tubes, lubricants, mufflers, gaskets, oils, skid chains, seat belts, windshield wipers, luggage carriers, seat covers, radios, heaters, mirrors, lights, and speed equipment. In addition, stores may also stock and sell small amounts of household electrical appliances, paint, sporting good items, toys, hardware, kitchen utensils, and garden tool implements. While the selling of merchandise will be the primary business of these locations, some installation of parts and accessories is allowed, as long as the store is not considered a motor vehicle repair center.

Exclusions to class code 8046 would include automobile service repair centers, tire dealers and installers, gasoline stations, automobile dismantling operations, and any other retail or wholesale operation whose primary merchandise is not related to auto parts or accessories.
