How to Get Aspect Values for eBay Motors using findItemsAdvanced

I'm new to the eBay API and am trying to filter down the results returned from a call to the eBay API using Python 2.7. I would like to filter down my eBay motors query based on vehicle-specific information. To do this, the docs tell me I must use the aspectFilters. My problem is that I simply cannot figure out what the different aspectFilters are. I don't know what the accepted names and values thereof are. I've looked here: http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/building-blocks/eBB_RefineSearch_aspectFilter.pdf https://developer.ebay.com/devzone/finding/CallRef/getHistograms.html However, neither work as soon as you change the categoryId to 6001 (the eBay Motors categoryId). Would someone mind helping please? What I'm specifically trying to filter on is Vehicle Title. Based on doing a regular search on ebay.com, the name should be "Vehicle+Title" and I should be able to say "Clear" as a value. However, this doesn't work.

@helios825, thanks for your response! Yes, I'm using findItemsAdvanced. As for the GlobalID / SiteID, I'm actually not using one at all when I try to get the histograms. Should I just insert it anywhere into the URL?

You're making the call with findItemsAdvanced (Finding API), correct? If so, which GlobalID are you using? Notice the [GlobalID for eBay Motors here][1] is separate from eBay US. [1]: http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/finding/CallRef/Enums/GlobalIdList.html
