Schaeffler showcases Fiat 500 clutch coverage

The Fiat 500 has been a huge sales success for Fiat, so, potentially, is a regular visitor to the independent workshop; therefore, motor factors should be interested in this latest vehicle ‘in focus’ bulletin produced by Schaeffler.

Highlighting Schaeffler’s transmission system know-how, the OEM and technical partner to many of the world’s vehicle producers offers clutch replacement solutions for both the 872cc and 964cc two-cylinder engine versions of all 500 models (2010-onwards).

The demands for improved driving comfort, performance, fuel consumption and reduced CO2 emissions mean that the Fiat 500 is fitted with complex, lightweight and vibration absorbing drivetrain components, which, if damaged or worn, can have a knock-on effect on all associated parts.

However, Schaeffler says that with its genuine OE quality transmission components, drivetrain damage can be resolved quicky, efficiently and safely, by choosing from the comprehensive range of LuK complete repair solutions and single components.

The complete solution comes in the form of the LuK RepSet DMF (part number (600 0323 00), which includes everything needed to carry out a professional replacement, including the DMF; however, if a test and assessment of the DMF concludes that it is within wear tolerance parameters, then it doesn’t need replacing. In this situation, a LuK RepSet can be fitted (620 300 00).

Schaeffler believes providing new service and repair opportunities for independent workshops is one of its specialisms, and its LuK GearBOX kit (462 0154 10) is a great example of this. In-house gearbox renovation not only adds another string to the workshop’s bow but can also make a significant contribution to its profits.

In common with its RepSets, LuK GearBOX repair kits have been specially developed to repair specific, high-wear applications and contain all the parts necessary to carry out a complete and professional gearbox overhaul.

Schaeffler says motor factor workshop customers can breathe easier, as they are fitting the same parts as delivered to vehicle manufacturers around the world for original fitment, which guarantees quality, durability and performance. They also benefit from the fact that LuK products are ‘all inclusive’ – with everything needed for a complete and professional replacement included in the box.
