CRP Automotive is offering Rein Automotive aluminum water pump pulley and belt kits (Part Nos. PKW0001 and PKW0002) for use on popular BMW vehicles.
Application coverage includes 1992-2006 3 Series, 1999-2005 5 Series, 2004-2006 X3, 2001-2006 X5, and 1997-2002 Z3 equipped with six cylinder engines.
The company says the new kits deliver better than OE performance and come complete with a genuine ContiTech serpentine belt, Rein aluminum replacement pulley, and the required hardware needed to mount the pulley to the water pump.
The Rein aluminum pulley is identical in fit, form, and function to the original so installation is easy. It is designed to deliver a longer, more robust service life than the OE plastic pulley which is susceptible to heat degradation over time due from exposure to high underhood temperatures, according to CRP Automotive.
“BMW vehicles that feature the E34 E36, E39 or E46 chassis typically come equipped with plastic OE water pump pulleys,” says Alex Ragucci, CRP Automotive brand manager. “These pulleys have been known to crack over time or when the water pump is being replaced. When the pulley fails, it can cause severe damage to the belt or water pump. That’s why Rein introduced the metal water pump pulley to ensure a more robust construction and longer service life.”
Rein Automotive Metal Water Pump Pulley and Belt Kits provide coverage for over one million vehicles in operation across the United States and Canada.
The Rein Automotive brand offers a wide range of OE-quality automotive replacement parts for import vehicle applications. Rein programs include AC parts, an anti-vibration program, an expanded hose program including power steering hoses, and a master cooling program inclusive of coolant hoses, water pumps and kits, coolant expansion tanks, thermostats, and thermostat assemblies along with caps and sensors.
