The new 2017/2018 edition of the clutch catalogue dedicated to passenger cars and LCV applications for all Valeo Service aftermarket product ranges has been released.
The catalogue presents the full Valeo Service offer consisting of more than 3,000 transmission products among which clutch kits, DMF, passive hydraulic actuation and spare parts. The catalogue covers clutch applications from the Volkswagen Golf I to the latest Mercedes A Class or Citroën DS3. Valeo Service offers one of the widest European car park coverage of clutch products and the range keeps increasing as Valeo Service launches more than 300 new products per year.
All the latest technological innovations are included, like the DMF with inner-damper, the hydraulic CSC for sequential gearboxes, the Valeo Self-Adjusting Technology (SAT, 29 p/n) and the High Efficiency Clutch kits (HEC, 80 p/n) that have been specifically developed for the aftermarket. SAT is a revolutionary technology using a self adjusting facing wear compensation device on the pressure plate increasing its effective thickness as the drive plate facing is wearing, while HEC is a robust combination of an improved cover assembly and a low wear facing material. Both are offering a constant and optimum pedal effort during the entire clutch life and don’t require any specific tool to be mounted contrary to other solutions proposed on the aftermarket.
The application section lists vehicles according to their engines, gearboxes, dates and other technical limitations like chassis or engine cuts, and presents the Valeo references and their combinations adapted to each specific vehicles’ configurations. All famous Valeo Service aftermarket ranges are proposed and identified by specific pictograms offering tailor-made solutions for the distributors and the garagists: traditional 2-piece kits, 3-piece kits with mechanical bearings, DMF and KIT4PTM, and also the new ranges of 3-piece kits with CSC, KIT4PTM with CSC and FullPACK DMFTM.
