Mahle says it is adding its weight to the campaign to stamp out low quality and counterfeit products in the UK filters market.
The company has produced a comprehensive guide to automotive filter quality, stressing the importance of like for like replacements. Mahle says that although there are many brands in the market which claim to provide matching quality, the truth is sometimes warped by differing specifications.
Mahle says that technicians and businesses fitting these parts leave themselves open to embarrassment if the end user discovers that a part is inferior, often after it has failed.
The company is distributing its new guide to its network across the UK and Ireland.
