For a sustainable repair of the front end auxiliary drive

No half measures for repairs

Air conditioning, power steering pump, water pump, start-stop system: due to technologically more and more complex components, the front end auxiliary drive in modern vehicles is under extreme stress. In addition, the forces and vibrations to be transmitted increase – and thus increase the possible wear. However, replacing a defective component usually only helps in the short-term. This is due to the fact that often the real reason for the damage lies with another component, which is very difficult to diagnose. If, for example, the clamping arm breaks, the cause may be a worn torsional vibration damper, or an overrunning alternator pulley that is no longer intact. If the real reason of the damage is not eliminated, the same damage can occur again after a short time. Therefore, in case of repair, it is always recommended to replace all relevant components of the front end auxiliary drive in one go. Thus, possible consequential damages and a renewed visit to the garage are excluded.
