The introduction to the market of Continental’s new belt pulley means it is the first aftermarket supplier to offer a belt pulley for many of the Volkswagen Group’s EA211 series of three-cylinder engines.
The new belt pulley, (part no. VD1144) can be found under the bonnet of Volkswagen Up, Polo and Golf models and also in the Skoda Citigo and the Seat Mii. The pulleys are manufactured at Continental to its own specifications and in OE quality.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers who responded to our survey in the last Technical News,” says product manager Adrian Rothschild. “In that, we asked which products workshops would most like to see from us in the future. We’re currently engaged in a number of development projects – but we have brought forward the market launch of this product based on feedback from our customers.
“Our goal, after all, is to include customers in the product development process in order to further improve interaction between the manufacturer, distributors and workshops in the aftermarket.”
