CRP Automotive has introduced a vehicle-specific power steering hose line for popular European makes. The company says its Rein Automotive brand power steering hose program meets a growing need for replacement assemblies and solves key service issues such as availability, cost, and reliability.
CRP says many of these power steering hose assemblies previously were only available from the OE dealer, and at a premium price.
Rein Automotive power steering hose assemblies are designed as a direct replacement for the original part and engineered to deliver exact original equipment performance, according to CRP. As an option, some come supplied with all required hardware such as metric clamps, O-rings, and washers, offering a complete repair solution.
The hoses are designed to fit the vehicle and work properly the first time, so shops can save on labor and help prevent comebacks. The new line includes: Pressure hose assemblies for pump to gear, pump to rack, and gear to cooler; return hose assemblies for reservoir to pipe, cooler to reservoir, gear to cooler, rack to cooler, and rack to reservoir; reservoir line hose for reservoir to pump, and suction hoses.
Application coverage features popular makes and models from Audi, BMW, Mercedes Benz, Mini, Volvo, and VW. The program will consist of more than 125 SKUs with a VIO (vehicles in operation) of over 8.5 million vehicles.
