August new to range additions

Date: Friday 28 August 2020

Dayco’s commitment to the independent sector means it is constantly bringing relevant additions into its range to ensure that workshops have the parts they need, when they need them. As a result, it has recently introduced close to 40 new references across its expanding product group portfolio.

With the growing popularity of auxiliary belt kits, which alongside the belt, contain all the rigid components (tensioners and idlers) necessary to successfully complete a full system replacement, it’s little surprise that with 12 new part numbers, these make up the bulk of the additions.

Notable among these are Dayco part number (KPV403), a belt and tensioner kit for several Ford applications utilising the 1.5 & 1.6-litre TDCi unit from 2010-19, including the C-MAX II, Focus III, Kuga II and Mondeo V, KPV406 for the popular Transit 2.4 TDCi from 2000-10, and KPV408 for the 1.5 & 1.6 TDCi Fiesta VI from 2012-17.

Kits for other prevalent brands include KPV417, which contains belt, tensioner and idler, for the Mercedes Sprinter 3.0-litre from 2018, KPV501, consisting of belt, tensioner and two idlers, for Nissan Qashqai 1.2 DIG from 2013-17 and Renault Captur 1.2 TCe over the same period and the smaller capacity 0.9 TCe from 2017-19, and KPV580 for BMW 3 Series 2.0d from 2007-13 and 3.0d from 2005-13.

Auxiliary belt additions, include 5PK1230EE that fits the Hyundai i10 1.2i from 2013-19 and an interesting new timing belt kit is KBIOWP030, which contains not only the water pump, but also a replacement belt-in-oil, for Ford’s 1.0SCTi used in the B-MAX and Fiesta VI from 2012-17 and Focus III 2011-15.

Finally, demonstrating the breadth of the company’s portfolio, there is also thermostat DT1292V for the 2.0 litre diesel and 1.4-litre petrol Jeep Renegade from 2014-18.

It is important for workshops to note that, despite the practices of some aftermarket suppliers, original equipment (OE) auxiliary belts are specifically designed to conform to very strict dimensions and so, where replacement belts of a more generic rather than vehicle specific size have been fitted, failures have occurred.

However, all of the auxiliary belts in Dayco’s aftermarket programme are manufactured to vehicle specific VM specifications, which means independents have access to an OE quality solution that is designed to precise standards, in terms of both its dimensions and construction, to the original article.
