FAI Automotive highlights latest range expansion

Date: Thursday 07 March 2024

Premium-quality parts supplier, FAI Automotive, has launched eight new references in its leading product portfolio, as it continues to expand its range of high-quality parts as part of its commitment to meeting evolving market demand and addressing the dynamic needs of the vehicle parc.

Driven by a dedication to excellence, FAI's product development team consistently adds highly relevant parts to its portfolio on a monthly basis. This latest expansion includes one new Exhaust Manifold Gasket, one Head Gasket, One Inlet Manifold Gasket, one new Oil Seal, a Rocker Gasket, one Timing Chain Kit and two new Sump Pans.

FAI offers an all-makes program for gaskets, oil seals and cylinder head bolts to ensure that every gasket set will contain every gasket and seal required to finish a complete head or block rebuild.

Its cylinder head bolt range is an essential addition to the gasket portfolio, as 99 percent of all modern engines are fitted with 'stretch' bolts which must be replaced when fitting a new head gasket. These bolts ensure that the head gasket is correctly loaded during thermal cycles, as the engines gets hot when in use and cold when at rest. If the bolts are not replaced the head gasket will fail prematurely.

The first new references introduced and highlighted as key are part number EM1646, an Exhaust Manifold Gasket suitable for Ford B-Max, Fiesta and Fusion, 1.4i engine models, 2008 – 2018, plus, reference HG1796, a new Head Gasket to fit Mercedes A-Class, B-Class CLA and GLA applications, 1.6, 2.0i 2012> models.

Another new-to-range part that is expected to be a fast mover is an Inlet Manifold Gasket, part number IM2189, fitting various engines and models such as Hyundai Accent, Gets and Kia Rio II, 1.4i engine, 2005 – 2011.  

One new Oil Seal has been added to the range to fit various popular passenger car, sports utility vehicle (SUV) and light commercial vehicle (LCV) makes and models, including Fiat Scudo, Citroen C4, C5, C8, DS4 and DS5; plus Ford C-Max, Focus and Galaxy; Landrover Discovery and Freelander; Jaguar X-Type; Opel / Vauxhall Grandland; and Peugeot 3008, 308, 4007, 407, Boxer, Expert and Traveller, all 2.0 / 2.2 Hdi engines.
