One box repair solutions

Schaeffler has revealed its new-to-range developments, which includes the latest LuK, INA and FAG references for Ford and Volkswagen Audi Group models. Three new part numbers cover kits for LuK clutch, INA timing chain and FAG wheel bearings for various models and engine specifications. 

A new LuK RepSet Pro, a complete one-box solution for hydraulic clutch systems, contains both a clutch kit and concentric slave cylinder (CSC). The new kit is fitted to Ford Galaxy, S-Max and Mondeo (2014-onwards) models with both 2.0 TDCi and 2.0 TDCi Bi-Turbo engines. The original equipment manufacturer always recommends replacing the CSC or slave cylinder when installing a new clutch, to avoid consequential damage and complaints in the hydraulic system. 

The INA range now features a new complete timing chain kit repair solution for Volkswagen Audi Group applications fitted with 1.4 TSi and 1.6 (2008-2016) engines. These include the Audi A1 and A3; SEAT Alhambra, Altea, Altea XL, Córdoba, Ibiza and Leon; ŠKODA Octavia II, Rapid and Yeti, as well as the VW Beetle, CC, Golf V/VI, Passat, Polo, Scirocco, Sharan, Tiguan and Touran. Each INA Timing Chain Kit contains all of the necessary OE parts for a professional service, including chain, gears, phasers and gasket. 

FAG announces the arrival of a new Gen.3 wheel bearing kit, suitable for all Audi A4 models from MY2015. These wheel bearings are the very latest complete bolt-on ‘hub units’ with a twin flange, often featuring magnetic encoder rings and cabling for safety systems. In addition to the bearing, four mounting bolts and a hub bolt are provided in the box. 

Product information, fitting instructions, labour times and more can be found on the REPXPERT garage portal:, on the REPXPERT app, or by calling the hotline on 01432 264 264.
