New-to-range list features Ford and Volkswagen Audi Group models
LuK, INA and FAG all feature in the latest new-to-range bulletin published by original equipment (OE) manufacturer and supplier, Schaeffler.
Three new part numbers have been released – covering kits for LuK clutch, INA timing chain and FAG wheel bearings – to cater for various models and engine specifications.
The first focus is on a new LuK RepSet Pro, a complete one-box solution for hydraulic clutch systems, containing both a clutch kit and concentric slave cylinder (CSC) inside the box.
The new kit is fitted to Ford Galaxy, S-Max and Mondeo (2014-onwards) models with both 2.0 TDCi and 2.0 TDCi Bi-Turbo engines.
Schaeffler always recommends replacing the CSC or slave cylinder when installing a new clutch, to avoid consequential damage and complaints in the hydraulic system.
Switching to INA, there is a new complete timing chain kit repair solution for Volkswagen Audi Group applications fitted with 1.4 TSi and 1.6 (2008-2016) engines.
These include the Audi A1 and A3; SEAT Alhambra, Altea, Altea XL, Córdoba, Ibiza and Leon; ŠKODA Octavia II, Rapid and Yeti, as well as the VW Beetle, CC, Golf V/VI, Passat, Polo, Scirocco, Sharan, Tiguan and Touran.
A timing chain transfers the rotational movement of the crankshaft to the camshaft and operates under continuous stress which, over time, can lead to wear and the need to fit a replacement.
Each INA Timing Chain Kit contains all of the the necessary OE parts for a professional service, including chain, gears, phasers and gasket, providing the perfect answer for technicians.
Meanwhile, FAG announces the arrival of a new Generation 3 (Gen.3) wheel bearing kit, suitable for all Audi A4 models from MY2015.
Gen.3 wheel bearings are the very latest complete bolt-on ‘hub units’ with a twin flange, often featuring magnetic encoder rings and cabling for safety systems.
Inside the box, in addition to the bearing itself, are four mounting bolts and a hub bolt – again, providing technicians with everything needed for a quick, simple and accurate repair.
Schaeffler will be revealing more new-to-range developments over the coming months, demonstrating the manufacturer’s commitment to delivering OE solutions to the aftermarket which allow technicians to ‘fit and forget’.
