CAT & DPF Fitting Kits

It is important to remember that every sales opportunity counts. Yet Klarius warns that many motor factors and garages are not reaping the full reward on sales of exhausts, catalytic converters (CATs) or diesel particulate filters (DPFs).

In normal operating conditions, a conventional exhaust system and its components are exposed to a wide variety of testing factors, such as high temperatures (from the exhaust gases), low temperatures (from the elements) and road debris – all of which can cause physical damage – and salt which can degrade the components. Given these factors, Klarius recommends using new mounting kits every time a new exhaust, catalytic converter or DPF is installed. This will guarantee a better fitment and longer life.

Fitting kits, as with all other Klarius products, are rigorously tested to produce a high quality end product. Not only does this give you peace of mind that your customers will be happy with the product they have received, it also ensures that you adhere to the warranty conditions of the parts manufacturer, many of which state that a warranty will become void if the old fittings are not replaced.

The key point to remember here is that fitting kits protect exhaust parts from corrosion and wear – new fitting kits should always be used when fitting new exhaust parts.

Installation Requirements

The most cost effective way to ensure that new exhaust system components stay securely in the correct place is to use a combined fitting kit. This ensures that the correct installation mountings are used and ensures that the exhaust is sealed effectively.

For the motorist, it makes little sense to invest in a high quality replacement product, such as a Type Approved CAT or DPF, only to compromise the overall quality by re-using old, and potentially corroded fittings. Consequently, fitting kits make an excellent cross-sell opportunity for the garage and the factor while offering excellent value for the customer.

The benefit of using Klarius mountings when replacing these parts is that of quality and affordability. All Klarius mountings are designed to follow strict OE specifications in regard to quality standards and functionality. This ensures excellent fitment every time for a fraction of the cost of the OE replacement.

From their Staffordshire base, Klarius produces over 2 million replacement exhausts, CAT s and DPFs for road cars every year. Range size and availability are of the utmost importance. Klarius has developed a rationalised range in excess of 700 fittings and kits with application for over 1,800 CATs and DPFs. Each fitting kit includes everything needed to replace all the mounting components quickly and efficiently.
