12/1/15 / LuK
With the LuK RepSet 2CT for Ford vehicles that use the 6-speed DPS6 transmission, Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket has developed yet another repair solution for fixing dry double-clutch systems. The new repair solution allows independent garages to fix the dry double-clutch systems of the Ford Fiesta, Focus and B-Max models. In addition, the Aftermarket specialists are also offering the right special tool for professional removal and installation.
'The new LuK RepSet 2CT repair solution for models of the Ford brand with 6-speed DPS6 transmissions is primarily designed for the North American market,' says Dr. Robert Felger, Senior Vice President Product and Marketing, Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket. 'Globally, we document about 1.5 million vehicles currently using this type of gearbox – an enormous potential for garages and distributors. A repair solution for the appropriate Ford-brand vehicles here in Europe is planned downstream.'
With the recent launch of its LuK RepSet 2CT repair solution for vehicles of the Ford nameplate using the 6-speed DPS6 transmission, Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket is continuing to expand its portfolio for repairing dry double-clutch systems. The Aftermarket specialists already have in their portfolio repair solutions for the dry double-clutch systems for Renault vehicles with the 6-speed DC4 transmission; and for Audi, Seat, Skoda and Volkswagen vehicles that use the 7-speed 0AM transmission.
Generally speaking all LuK RepSet 2CT repair solutions are practical, easy-to-install complete solutions. Besides the double clutch, the kit also includes all components – tuned to work perfectly together – that are needed for replacing a specific double-clutch system. The kit not only includes guide sleeves, snap rings and fastening screws but also engagement actuators (the engagement lever and bearing) because you can expect the clutch engagement system to be worn down as well.
Also available from Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket is the modular LuK special tool system, whose parts can be combined with all of the other vehicle-specific tool sets – which is ideal for the professional repair of today’s and tomorrow's LuK double-clutch systems. There is a basis tool set available to garages, which forms the foundation of the modular tool system. This basis tool set contains all the tool parts needed for repairing a double clutch and, when combined with the vehicle-specific tool sets, can expand the modules to a complete set.
This new repair solution is completed by a comprehensive training program, technical brochures, detailed repair guidelines and training videos showing removal and installation of the double clutch (in 8 languages). With it, Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket makes it possible for garages around the world to repair double-clutch systems – quickly and efficiently, while minimizing sources for possible mistakes and creating cost benefits.
