Responding to the needs of the independent sector once again, Schaeffler has assembled a wide range of important service and repair solutions for the popular Volkswagen Caddy.
The Caddy was introduced to Europe in 1982 and is now in its second generation. Although most often seen in its panel van variant, it has also been manufactured as a pick-up and utility in both its first and present generation, with more recent versions featuring a seven-speed double clutch system.
Starting with the transmission, Schaeffler offers two LuK RepSet 2CT clutch kits (602000200 for vehicles up to June 2011 and 602000700 from July 2011 onwards) along with the matching dual mass flywheel (DMF) (415062609). A standard LuK RepSet kit (623353400) is also available for the manual version, plus two DMF bolt sets, separate release bearing, master and slave cylinders.
A LuK GearBOX kit for 04A transmissions (462033310) completes the offer, giving independent workshops the chance to overhaul the gearbox rather than fit a recon unit, or send work away to a ‘specialist’.
INA are the engine experts, offering two timing belt kits, with or without the water pump (530055032 / 530055010). Naturally, all individual timing system components, as well as the water pump, are available separately if required. For the Front End Auxiliary Drive, there are two FEAD kits (529047520 including the OAP or 529047510 without), plus the torsional vibration damper (544013810), along with the separate components – belt, tensioner and OAP.
When it comes to the chassis system on the Caddy, its front and rear wheel bearing requirements are met with OE units from Schaeffler’s famous FAG brand. Alongside wheel bearings, the FAG chassis system programme also includes steering & suspension components, covering the entire range of ball joints, tie rods, strut mounts, track control arms, mountings and bushes, as well as link/coupling rods and stabilisers – so all requirements are catered for.
Schaeffler delivers the same parts to the aftermarket as it does to vehicle manufacturers for original fitment, which guarantees their quality, durability and performance. If Schaeffler isn’t the OE supplier, every component is still manufactured to exacting Schaeffler quality standards, using the same specifications, materials and manufacturing techniques used in the OE parts.
Technicians also benefit from Schaeffler’s ‘complete repair solution’ philosophy, with every single component required for a professional and safe replacement included in the box, right down to the last nut, bolt or washer.
