Schaeffler has added several new-to-range part numbers, including some that is says are “unique” to market, so that workshops can offer genuine original equipment (OE) quality repair solutions to customers.
The new unique to market products include a LuK RepSet clutch kit for the Skoda Kodiaq and Volkswagen Tiguan 1.5 TSi, plus another LuK RepSet for Hyundai and Kia 1.6 CRDi applications.
Schaeffler says it manufactures these clutch systems for factory fitment, “so you can be confident that the new RepSets will match the quality, performance, and reliability of the original components, because they are the original components”.
An FAG steering & suspension range expansion makes up the bulk of the other additions, reflecting its growing popularity in the aftermarket. Several new tie-rod ends and stabiliser rods are now available from stock for popular Citroen, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Vauxhall/Opel and Volvo applications.
Collectively, these new parts will service over one million vehicles in the UK and Ireland car parc, according to Schaeffler.
Two new INA timing chain kits have been added to its expanding engine system programme, accompanied by new water pump and Torsional Vibration Damper (TVD) references, which together provide coverage for another 1.3 million vehicles including BMW, Mercedes-Benz and VAG applications.
Finally, a new LuK RepSet DMF kit has been launched to repair Ford 2.2-litre diesel applications, including Galaxy II, Mondeo IV and S-Max models manufactured between 2008 and 2015.
