Braking terminology and watch outs What does OE product mean? What are OE aftermarket parts? OE, which stands for original equipment, is a term most people in the automotive vehicle sector have heard of. Referring to the factory fitted part, OE equipment can also be described as ‘genuine. OE Quality When Aftermarket brands use the term ‘OE quality’ they are simply making the suggestion that their product “compares” with the OEM part.

Aftermarket or Real OE? Our braking proposition is really simple to follow. If you require “REAL OE” then you have a choice of PAGID or BREMBO. If you are working on everyday vehicles that don’t require OE, then we have our AFTERMARKET option with EICHER. EICHER has a market coverage of 97%, meaning, we will always have the parts in stock.

What else is in the Aisin range?

Clutch Slave Cylinder​ Clutch slave cylinders are located near the clutch assembly. Depressing the clutch pedal in a hydraulic system sends fluid from the master cylinder to a slave cylinder, where a piston and rod move the clutch-release lever. Usually replaced when unable to engage / disengage clutch or when leaks occur.

Concentric Slave Cylinders​ AISIN’s Concentric Slave Cylinder (CSC) reduces the force necessary to use the clutch pedal, so less leg effort is needed to disconnect the clutch. This in turn reduces the friction on the components, leading to an increased parts lifetime. As well as a better feel with the clutch pedal and easier operation, AISIN’s CSC also reduces the chances of engine stall while the driver is changing gears.

GOOD TO KNOW Klarius Exhaust Systems – The Benefits • Type Approved – Not a requirement in the UK, but it does mean that the Exhaust is manufactured to an OE standard which is important for the following reasons • First Time Fit – Reduced Ramp Time • Noise – Enhanced Driver/Passenger comfort • Back Pressure - Equivalent to OE giving correct flow so that the engine is not under strain which would give increased fuel consumption, an important factor with the current economic pressures. • Largest Range from any supplier in the UK • 3 Year Warranty • Availability – Off the shelf, same day and overnight. MOT CAT awareness There are several reasons that can cause a Catalytic Converter to fail: • Incorrect fuel/air mix • Damaged or broken monolith (ceramic substrate inside the Cat casing) • Lambda sensor functioning correctly • Cat is blocked – incorrect fuel used / unsuitable fuel additive / engine problems. • Also, a car will fail an MOT if the Cat has been removed, as the Cat is designed to reduce a vehicle’s harmful gas emissions.

Filters – providing optimum performance all year round Throughout winter, customers will have had to spend a little extra time clearing those frosted windscreens – which often includes the use of A/C.

A cabin air filter may need changing if: • Strange noises occur • The customer is experiencing unpleasant smells • Poor airflow is a sign of a clogged cabin air filter • Windows that fog up frequently and are hard to clear. It is important to ensure a vehicle’s A/C system is at it’s best year round and regular changing of a vehicle’s cabin filter is a must. A clear cabin filter will ensure optimum performance and where carbon-activated or anti-allergen filters are used further benefits can be had. Year-round use of the A/C system keeps seals lubricated and prevents premature loss of refrigerant.

Provide your customers with healthier, cleaner air, mile after mile with MANN FILTER.
