Garages rush to sign-up to REPXPERT Twitter channel

The Twitter platform was launched recently at Automechanika UK and is proving popular with users keen to follow tweets on a variety of topics including LuK original equipment (OE) clutch components.

One of the latest tweets focuses on Dual Mass Flywheels (DMFs), which have been fitted to more than 100 million vehicles as OE since their launch in 1985, and because modern engines continue to get smaller, lighter and more powerful, they are still the vehicle manufacturers’ (VMs) first choice for efficient vibration control.

Advice on fitting LuK components is now available for free on Schaeffler’s online workshop resource portal REPXPERT. Malcolm Short, Technical Services Manager for Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket in the UK, said: “Subscribers to REPXPERT can now download all the information they need to install LuK clutches for free, whereas in the past they would have had to use the bonus points included in our product cartons. In fact, all TecRMI information related to Schaeffler components, whether it be LuK, INA and FAG is now available for free to REPXPERT members.

“The LuK clutch range is the complete clutch solution and continues to be the first choice for distributors and garages who want to stock and fit OE parts they can trust and we want to make sure that workshops get all the information they require to fit them, professionally.”

In addition to LuK clutch products, the company also supplies INA tensioners and FAG wheel bearings to the independent aftermarket, and recently introduced the Ruville engine, cooling and suspension components range.
