Prior flood damage can also be a problem with used parts that are taken out of scrapped cars.

I would think that depends on the part. At one extreme, I wouldn't be concerned about a tail light housing being flooded. At the other, I wouldn't want to touch a seat that was soaked.

You'd have to think about the part and how it would be affected by being submerged in salt water.
