PLAY IT SMART
GATES offers smart solutions for the Accessory Belt Drive System (ABDS) with Micro-V® Kits Plus Water Pumps.
Having all the parts at hand when performing a replacement job on the accessory belt drive system (ABDS) is not only convenient, it also saves time and makes a workshop more efficient. As a complete systems provider, Gates provides several ready-made solutions for all replacement needs related to ABDS.
Accessory belt drive systems are becoming increasingly complex. So, any component failure will have a much higher impact on the performance of the entire engine. Factors should therefore encourage workshops to take a full service approach to ABDS to be able to extend better service to their customers.
MICRO-V® KITS FOR A COMPLETE OVERHAUL
Failures such as sudden loss of power steering or belt drive systembreakdown can be prevented by replacing the multi-ribbed belts and all related drive components simultaneously. Gates has the most extensive Micro-V® Kit range in the market that helps save the time and hassle of finding the different parts required. The Gates Micro-V® Kits and the new range of Micro-V® Kits Plus Water Pumps, offer convenience and quality, all in one box.
With Micro-V® Kits as well as Torsional Vibration Damper (TVD) Kits and now, the Micro-V® Kits Plus Water Pumps in its range, Gates is a one-stop-shop for all ABDS service parts. Focusing on the UK car parc as well as the average mileage on specific applications such as the Vauxhall Vivaro, the new range of Micro-V® Kits Plus Water Pumps was launched through February and March 2016 and comprises 21 parts; further range extensions are planned for the rest of the year.
As with the popular PowerGrip® Kits Plus Water Pumps range, each Micro-V® Kit Plus Water Pump contains an application specific water pump of the same OE quality usually associated with Gates.
Moreover, the OE quality components fit the applications perfectly. This aids garages and workshops as:
• A full replacement prevents costly comebacks
• Ordering only one product saves time and therefore, money
Not changing the water pump along with the other components can also increase the risk of an ABDS breakdown.
