Continental AG’s ContiTech Division has added three sets of tool kits to its service program for repair shops.
The kits include Tool Box V01 designed specifically for changing timing belts in Volkswagen engines.
The ContiTech Laser Kit checks alignment in pulley component packages. The Tool Box OAP is for installation of overrunning alternator pulleys.
“Universal tools can do the job as well as application-specific tools,” says ContiTech’s Roger Homer. “You certainly don’t want a belt to slip off a drive or pulley because that could create potential costly delays in the repair.”
