Inside Line: Schaeffler

LuK Clutch

When changing the clutch and Concentric Slave Cylinder (CSC) on these vehicles check for any signs of oil contamination from inside the gearbox. Any leaks should then be rectified before the new clutch and CSC are fitted. This vehicle is also fitted with a Dual Mass Flywheel (DMF) and this should also be checked for wear. LuK has now introduced an App for this available from Google play and iTunes.

INA Belt drive systems

Every Sprinter with a petrol or diesel engine has an OAP fitted. When replacing the (FEAD) auxiliary belt it is advisable to check to operation of the alternator pulley (OAP) and FEAD tensioner at the same time. The new belt should have a like-for-like belt length to ensure correct operation of the FEAD tensioner.

FAG Wheel Bearings

FAG now offers a repair solution for the front wheel bearing. It is now possible to replace the bearing without having to replace the entire wheel knuckle assembly, in contrast to the repair method suggested by the vehicle manufacturer; the advantages being that it is not necessary to do the mandatory wheel alignment reset meaning a reduced downtime of the vehicle in the workshop.

A special tool is required to ensure correct fitment. FAG provides detailed instructions and DVD with the special tool.
