Renault Trucks is offering a range of reconditioned parts in a move that it says is also a demonstration of sustainability.
The company’ ‘eXchange’ range consists of reconditioned parts, approved to specifications that meet the same reliability, safety and environmental standards as new ones. They come with a two-year warranty and are a viable option for maintaining optimum vehicle performance while controlling maintenance costs.
The ‘standard replacement’ procedure replaces worn or damaged vehicle parts with guaranteed original parts, such as an engine or gearbox in as-new condition.
“With eXchange parts, Renault Trucks can guarantee its customers that their vehicles’ performances will be maintained, no matter how old the vehicle is,” explains Mete Büyükakinci, head of the Remanufacturing Project at Renault Trucks.
Parts available through the scheme include engine and gearbox parts, turbos, braking systems, clutches, electrical, steering, suspension and cooling components
Reconditioning of parts takes place at the company’s factory in Limoges, France, where Renault claims the environmental impact of producing a reconditioned part is up to 60% lower than for a new component.
