FEAD the demand

When cars modernise, so must the procedures. Changing components at the same time is quickly becoming the key to a healthy and happy vehicle.

Components of front-end auxiliary drive systems are always working to the same stresses; within reason it’s advised to change at the same time and not just check or replace the Ribbed V-belt.

Additional components such as air conditioning, power-assisted steering and start-stop systems along with strict CO2 targets has led to more people downsizing to smaller engines. Everything added up are known to create a greater load and greater stresses on the entire front end auxiliary drive.
