PROMO: A CLEAN START: INTRODUCING THE NEXT GENERATION OF WIPERS

PROMOTIONAL ARTICLE ON BEHALF OF VALEO

 

Recent advances in wiper blade technology are improving performance, keeping drivers safer, saving them money, and making it easier to find the right replacements.

 

The humble wiper blade is often an accessory we don’t pay too much attention to, but under-performing wipers can have a big effect on your safety on the road, and your back pocket.

Thankfully, some recent breakthroughs from the French manufacturer Valeo are improving wiper performance, and making it easier to find and fit the right replacements.

One of the recent breakthroughs in wiper blade technology has been the development of the Valeo AquabladeTM.

A winner of a 2018 PACE Award for innovation, the Valeo AquaBladeTM completely rethinks the car windscreen washing system.

As conventional wiping systems spray washer fluid from stationary jets beneath the windscreen, there’s often an uneven distribution of fluid, a high amount of waste, a lack of effectiveness at high speeds or in high wind, and reduced driver visibility during the clean. With the Valeo AquaBladeTM on the other hand, fluid is distributed through channels along the entire length of each wiper blade rather than from stationary jets.

The result is a windscreen surface uniformly cleaned, regardless of vehicle speed or wind conditions. You only use the washing fluid you need, reducing fluid consumption. And, most importantly, there is a significant improvement in driver visibility during a clean, increasing road safety for everyone.

The fact that Valeo AquaBladeTM is built on a flat blade rather than a traditional wiper blade also means a much smoother, consistent and quieter performance.

Where traditional wiper blades have between four and eight pressure points in contact with your car’s windscreen, flat blades have hundreds of pressure points resulting in uniform pressure along the entire length of each wiper.

Valeo wiper blades are also designed to be extremely quick and easy to install – they can be replaced in a matter of seconds. Valeo Service’s packaging features step-by-step fitting instructions and there are a number of instructional videos on their website.

Finding the right replacement with Valeo Service is simple too. Each wiper blade package clearly shows the vehicle makes and models the wiper is suitable for, and there is also a QR code on each packet that is linked to an online tool to confirm you have the right wipers.

Valeo Service recommends replacing wiper blades on a regular basis or as soon as they show any sign of wear that results in a loss of wiping performance.

PROMO: PROFIT NOW FROM DIESEL AND GDI INJECTION SYSTEMS

PROMOTIONAL ARTICLE ON BEHALF OF HARTRIDGE LTD

 

Fuel Injection Repair? Not Just for Specialists…

Lee Jacobs, Global Product & Strategy Director at Hartridge, explains why UK workshops looking to invest in the next big thing should consider the Diesel & GDi injector repair/servicing sector.

 

The fuel system test & repair aftermarket is arguably undergoing the most change of all in the Automotive industry as a result of the diesel engine falling from grace.

Inevitably, this comes at a time when the number of CR (common rail) diesel vehicles outside of warranty is at its highest. Simultaneously, the GDi (petrol direct injection) market is experiencing unprecedented growth as a comparative newcomer to the fuel system market. The technology is now dominating petrol engine OE production at a time when the huge shift in registrations from diesel to petrol is in full swing.

It is our opinion that right now the market is ripe for newcomers to invest in both diesel and GDi injector testing and for Diesel specialists to seriously consider GDi as a natural and unavoidable consequence of the change that they cannot ignore for long.

Our argument is based on three key principals:

1: A vast & aging diesel-engine vehicle parc sits alongside a fast growing new technology (GDi) with known reliability issues. Over the next 5 years at least, the opportunity to provide a cost effective alternative to injector replacement is set to soar. An injector test-clean-service-retest proposition offers motorists great value and excellent profit returns for the workshop.

 

2:  The latest Hartridge test equipment offers a fantastic low investment all makes entry point into the market. Until recently it was only possible for serious specialist diesel players to invest in its OE authorised equipment due to investment cost & complexity involved.

 

3: These same new machines enable a workshop with no specialist knowledge of fuel systems to comprehensively test CR Diesel or GDi injectors before repairing or servicing them. A combination of patented technology and highly advanced software provides the average garage with a ‘turnkey’ next-generation range of test equipment.

Our new test machines are very easy to use and are fully automatic. Our decades of know-how and understanding of testing injectors to OE standards is all captured within the hardware and embedded in the software technology.

This significantly de-skills a workshop’s market entry requirements, which makes it easier, cheaper and faster to start earning revenue though testing, servicing and repairing injectors.

For any workshop wanting to profit from this opportunity then choosing Hartridge test equipment means investment is now a fraction of what it used to be, and the resulting profit returns are possibly unrivalled.

PROMO: STAYING ON TRACK WITH STEERING AND SUSPENSION

PROMO: STAYING ON TRACK WITH STEERING AND SUSPENSION

 

PROMOTIONAL CONTENT ON BEHALF OF EURO CAR PARTS

 

Staying on track with steering and suspension

With MOT season around the corner, Helen Robinson, marketing director at Euro Car Parts, looks at a component group that is increasingly becoming the cause of failure

 If you were asked to name one of the highest causes of MOT failure, what answer would you give? Many vehicles fail on tyres, wipers and even illegible or damaged number plates which can be quick and relatively inexpensive repairs for customers. However, an increasing number of MOT failures are down to extensive wear or damage in the steering and suspension system which requires a costlier and more time-consuming solution.

The new MOOG packaging

It’s no coincidence that Section 2 of the MOT test is devoted to steering and suspension. These parts are often taken for granted when a vehicle is in operation, but potholes in the road can put suspension systems through a great deal of strain, potentially affecting alignment, which if left unchecked can lead to accelerated wear to components within the system. As these safety critical systems comprise many components and assemblies, repairers should take every opportunity to inspect them for customers, using only quality replacement parts from a trusted provider.

With more arms, links and bushes than ever before, plus increasing volumes of air suspension work reaching the aftermarket, the choice for replacement parts has never been larger. Euro Car Parts stocks all the steering and suspension components needed to cover an expanding range of cars with quick delivery to workshops.

The latest addition to our range is MOOG;a brand synonymous with quality steering and suspension products and recognised globally for its high-quality chassis parts. More than 2,500 product codes will be available through Euro Car Parts by March 2019, with further references to be added throughout the year. The introduction of MOOG® boosts our steering and suspension offering considerably, adding to a solid range which includes high quality chassis parts from Starline and ZF (Lemforder and TRW), among other leading manufacturers.

Although replacement parts are widely available, theimportance of also sourcing and using the correct tools when replacing steering and suspension components cannot be overstated. Air guns may seem like a quick and convenient solution to tightening nuts and bolts, but they should only be used for loosening, as they can overtighten. It is also important that repairers only fully tighten suspension arm fitting bolts once the wheel hub has been raised to its natural operating position. This can be done by measuring the distance from the wheel centre to the wheel arch at ground level. Once the arms are in place and the bolts loosely tightened, the wheel hub can be raised using a jack to the correct position prior to fully tightening using a torque wrench. Vehicle manufacturers recommend that bolts and nuts are replaced every time an axle component is replaced, and these are included with the component or available separately.

With vehicles becoming more sophisticated, repairers should also bear in mind ADAS when working on anything connected to the steering and suspension system, particularly when working on modern vehicles. European legislation introduced in 2004, requires new vehicles to have at least two ADAS systems installed. Common tasks, such as adjusting a vehicle’s wheel alignment, can affect the calibration for one or multiple ADAS systems. This means that an ADAS calibration would need to take place after the wheel alignment to realign the ADAS systems. It’s important to make sure this is done as the repairer has a duty of care to ensure the service is carried out in full as a vehicle returned to an owner uncalibrated leaves the workshop at risk of liability should the car be involved in an accident.

 

MOOG’s steering and suspension components are produced and tested to ISO standards. The Moog range also features Hybrid Core Technology which provides outstanding durability, even under extreme conditions. With this innovation, MOOG®can offer a distinguished product with up to fivefold increased durability. The system, which incorporates a carbon fibre bearing and induction heat treated ball stud, is applied to ball joints, track control arms, wishbones, axial rods and tie rod ends.

PROMO: TVD INSTALLATION AND REMOVAL

PROMO: TVD INSTALLATION AND REMOVAL

PROMOTIONAL CONTENT WRTTEN BY CORTECO

Torsional Vibration Dampers (TVDs) provide vital protection for a vehicles engine. TVDs are made up of rubber and metal components; the rubber within the metal absorbs excessive vibrations that are leaked from the engine. These vibrations, if transmitted, can damage surrounding components causing them to fail prematurely. Having parts within the engine failing can cause significant damage to the vehicle.

We at Corteco thrive off the quality and expertise passed down by our parent company Freudenberg. We offer vibration control components and repair kits in OEM quality for more than 27,500 types of vehicles. All products are designed to meet the highest quality standards and are manufactured using the latest production methods.

This directly relates to our TVDs and we know that if you start to hear excessive noise coming from the engine or the vehicles is, vibrating excessively then you need to get your car into the garage. The steps below will show you how you can successfully remove and install a replacement TVD.

Step 1– The belt routing can be quite complex so we advise that you take a picture or draw a quick sketch of this.

Step 2– Next we need to remove the tensioner from the belt, this can easily be done by rotating the pulley.

Step 3– To remove the TVD from the crankshaft you need to loosen the mounting bolts. As we know not everything is as straight forward and some TVDs are different.

If the TVD you are replacing has a central expansion bolt then you will need to block the flywheel, like most repairs on a vehicle all parts need to be replaced and this includes the central bolt.

If the TVD you are replacing doesn’t have a central bolt then this can be removed by holding the pulley and removing the mounting bolts. As always we recommend that all bolts are replaced with the TVD, Corteco offers complete TVD kits to make this possible.

Step 4– Unpack the new damper and place this on the engine.

Step 5– Now the new TVD is on we need to tighten the mounting bolts, if there are several bolts we recommend tightening alternate bolts and working them in a star pattern. Torque the mounting bolts to 1/3 of the installation torque.

Step 6– Before fully tightening the bolts we recommend you torque the mounting bolts to 2/3 and then continue to tighten them to the full torque as specified by the vehicle manufacturer in the manual.

Step 7– Before releasing the vehicle back to the customer, it is advised to inspect the front end auxiliary drive for wear and to replace any parts that are showing significant signs of stress. Ensure the belt has been re-fitted before starting the engine

Step 8– The final step to the installation and removal process is reloading the belt onto the tensioner by rotating the tensioner to the correct position. Ensure the belt has been re-fitted before starting the engine without doing so can cause significant damage.

As a pulley is seen as a crucial repair only quality products should be used, Corteco offers a lifetime warranty on all TVD kits, as we know they will not let you down.

PROMO: CORTECO EXPLODES THE GUIDE BUSHES ‘MYTH’

PROMOTIONAL CONTENT WRITTEN BY CORTECO

 

Clutch input shaft sleeves (guide/ bushes) and seals: essential, but are they really only available through dealerships? Corteco explodes the myth.

The first call for any replacement part is the local motor factor, but when it comes to a part such as a clutch input shaft sleeve (guide/ bush) and seal, most UK garages turn to dealerships.

Essential in clutch changes for many German, Italian and French-built cars, dealerships hold a virtual monopoly on aftermarket sales throughout the UK. But the fact is, they are not an OE supply only item.

Garages only think they are.

 

New direction

Split-open view of a guide bush

Until quite recently, for example, that’s precisely what they thought up at Almark Garage in Wirksworth, Derbyshire:

“We always sourced them through the dealers. It just seemed like the place to get them because it was associated more with the OE gearbox than the clutch,” says proprietor Mark Swift.

“Our problem was that once you’ve got the vehicle up on the ramp and the gearbox off, you couldn’t hang around all day. Sometimes service from the dealers leaves a lot to be desired, so it meant that we didn’t always replace them, even though we know they can be a source of problems with the clutch.”

Almark is fitting more, now, because the availability has improved.

“It was only when the motor factor came along about three months ago and pointed out that they now had them in stock that we switched over. They are not expensive to buy, but even so, they are half the dealership price. I have to say that the service they provide means we are now fitting more than we ever did,” he adds.

 

Guide/ bush function

When not in operation, the clutch release bearing withdraws and comes to rest on the shaft sleeve. The shaft sleeve can become pitted through wear and tear. A worn release bearing can catch on it, leading to misalignment problems that can cause the clutch to slip.

This accelerates clutch wear.

Inside the shaft sleeve is a rubber seal. This is designed to protect the clutch from ingress by gearbox oil. If the seal fails there are problems ahead. Seal failure is often related to debris generated by clutch wear.

 

Contaminants

Clutch ‘dust’ accumulates in the gearbox. If the dust accumulates on the shaft and on the sealing lip, the seal can be compromised. It can damage the seal and reduce operational life. A worn or damaged seal allows the oil to leak into the clutch housing. If this contaminates the friction plate, premature failure of the clutch is inevitable.

This leads to excessive slippage. Any excessive slip between the clutch and flywheel causes overheating. Soaring clutch temperatures increase the potential for failure.

Installation errors

After removing the clutch, the clutch input shaft sleeve (guide/bush) and seal is sometimes ignored or not considered for replacement. Three alternative views are:

  1. a) It is part of the gearbox, rather than the clutch
  2. b) It looks ok, so let’s save the customer money
  3. b) They are difficult to replace so are best left alone

Each of these constitutes an error of judgement that can expose the garage to an expensive rectification procedure and damage its reputation.

Best practice

Corteco, one of the world’s largest manufacturer’s of clutch input shaft sleeves (guide/ bush) and seals, says that although these components are highly reliable performers, they must be replaced when changing the clutch.

It adds that because so many garages have always sourced their replacement from dealerships, many motor factors are unaware of the demand.

Given that labour is the major cost of the clutch change and that the clutch input shaft sleeve (guide/bush) and seal is not an expensive part, garages would be inclined to change more of them if the parts were available. A campaign to raise awareness about aftermarket availability is under way.

PROMO: HELLA HENGST – THE FILTRATION EXPERTS

PROMOTIONAL ARTICLE FROM HELLA-HENGST

 

Workshops have a responsibility to their customers, not just when it comes to the standard of the work they undertake and the quality of replacement components they fit, but also in terms of service and advice they offer. In addition to these customer-facing benefits, this principal will also help workshops both in their reputation and the bottom line.

In terms of vehicle performance, engine emissions and to minimise fuel costs, ensuring the regular replacement of the air, fuel and oil filters with an original equipment (OE) quality substitute, such as a HELLA Hengst filter, is of the utmost importance and any workshop that would even consider straying from either the vehicle manufacturers (VM) specified service schedule or turn to a low quality alternative replacement, would be considered as to have made a reckless decision.

Where workshops can fall down however, is with the replacement – or lack of replacement – of the cabin filter, which effects the health and well-being of the vehicle’s occupants, an equally

Hella Hengst portfolio

important part of a customer-focussed outlook.

Air quality is always in the headlines and providing a healthy environment for their customers is one of the ways that workshops can distinguish themselves from their competitors. Many studies have shown that the air quality inside a vehicle has a significant influence on safety; when it is thick with pollutants for example, the driver’s concentration can suffer, resulting in a higher risk of an accident.

Incredibly, up to 540,000 litres of air can enter the cabin for every hour of driving and research has shown that this air is approximately five times more contaminated by exhaust gases, pollutants and allergens than air at the roadside.

Workshops therefore, have a large part to play when it comes to the air quality within their customers’ vehicles. By specifying a HELLA Hengst Blue.care® cabin filter, they can optimise the air quality for the direct benefit of their customers in terms of a reduction in pollutants within the vehicle, which aids the driver’s concentration, makes them feel less tired and subsequently reduces the risk of accidents due to driver fatigue.

A standard cabin filter is certainly a good first step as, in addition to its protective role over the air conditioning system, it will remove pollen and fine dust, whereas a carbon activated version goes one further by filtering out bad-smelling odours and hazardous gases such as ozone, smog and exhaust gases. However, the HELLA Hengst Blue.care® filter also neutralises allergens and bacteria, making the environment particularly suitable for the family car.

Its first line of defence comes through an electrostatic medium that keeps out coarse particles, which is supported by a filter fleece that increases its dust retention capacity. An active carbon layer separates out vapours, odours and harmful gases, while so called ‘meltblown’ medium filters out fine dust including micro-particles with diameters smaller than 2.5 mm. Finally, the biofunctional layer contains nanosilver, which has an anti-microbial effect and jointly provides the five level protection from pollen, dust, mould/spores, odours and bacteria that makes the Blue.care® the filter of choice for the discerning workshop.

Due to the sheer quantity of air cabin filters have to cope with, HELLA Hengst recommend that they are replaced annually or every 10,000 miles, whichever comes first. However, vehicles that spend most of their time being driven in busy traffic – like the typical school run – should have them changed twice a year, irrespective of their annual mileage.

For more information about the OE quality products available from HELLA Hengst, please call customer services on: 01295 662400 or email hella.sales@hella.com

PROMO: WHEN DURABILITY MATTERS, MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE

Promotional content written by Corteco

When seals become contaminated, vehicle performance and reliability is quickly compromised.

Lorries are expected to operate around the clock while exposed to moisture and general physical debris and still produce as little down time as possible. Operating conditions are harsh, but reliability remains vital for the driver and the customer. Cassette seals for axles provide the perfect solution and form part of a new generation of ‘closed sealing’ solutions that protects against contamination in working conditions and tough operating environments. Corteco has a comprehensive seal range for axle applications that now includes almost every sealing option, from traditional gaskets and O-rings to the latest low-friction Cassettes for CV and LCV.

Cassette Seals were developed for vehicles working continuously in extremely physical environments on a daily basis. Cassette sealing system technology is now used in a wide number of applications and available for a broad range of different sizes. The most important aspects for the selection of Cassette Seals are:

  • Temperature
  • Circumferential speed
  • Axial play
  • Fitting procedure
  • Degree of contamination of the surrounding area

Choice of sealing materials

In addition to its product design and innovative capabilities, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies has access to resources that include thousands of different types of raw materials. Each individual component may comprise of combinations of many different rubber or plastic compounds that are used in association with various coatings and adhesives. OE manufacturers rely on FST in the selection of raw materials, product design, as well as the development and production processes of the seals that are fitted to their vehicles.

The choice of sealing materials used in individual cassette seals is based upon:

  • Operating environment
  • OE requirements
  • FST experience

FST is a name that OE manufacturers know they can trust and that’s the reason why they manufacture billions of seals each year. By working closely with FST, Corteco has developed a Cassette Seals product range to match the needs of the aftermarket – and thanks to extensive logistical experience, the correct sealing solution for almost every application is never very far away.

Product Reliability

Cassette Seals deliver reliable first time fit solutions that fleet operators can depend upon. Each Cassette Seal includes:

  • Static sealing system
  • Dynamic sealing system
  • Dust lips for dirt protection

Fleet operators rely on the parts that are installed into their vehicles to withstand excessive pressure from everyday operating life. Fitting OE Cassette Seals ensures peace of mind and reduce costs and downtime making sure everything runs smoother.

Applications 

Automotive applications are characterized by contamination, intensive utilization and high speed for long distances and periods. The utilisation of Cassette Seals covers many fields including; pick-up, commercial vehicles and on-road trucks. 

General Industrial applications are characterised by the presence of severe contamination, intensive utilisation, continuous start and stops with short distances and high repair costs. The utilisation of Cassette Seals cover many fields including; off-road trucks, agriculture, earth moving machines, implements and many more.
