Reflecting its position as a leading original equipment (OE) manufacturer and preferred partner to vehicle manufacturers around the world, Schaeffler claims it has again responded to the needs of the independent sector with the introduction of a new LuK RepSet 2CT kit – part number 602002600.
The kit can service over 300,000 popular Volkswagen Audi Group UK and Ireland vehicles that are equipped with the DQ381 ‘wet’ double clutch system, including the Audi A3, Q2, Q3 and TT; Seat Ateca, Leon and Tarraco; Skoda Karoq, Octavia and Superb; Volkswagen Caddy, Golf VII, Passat, T-Roc, Tiguan and Touran.
The DQ381 is an electronically controlled, twin-clutch, multiple-shaft, automatic gearbox, in either a transaxle or traditional transmission layout, depending on the engine/drive configuration, and features automated clutch operation and selectable fully automatic or semi-manual gear selection. It was designed to be smaller and lighter than previous versions, helping to reduce fuel consumption and lower emissions.
The parts in the LuK RepSet 2CT box are the same as Schaeffler delivers to vehicle manufacturers around the world for original fitment, so quality, durability and performance is “guaranteed”. When offered alongside its IMI certified REPXPERT two-day transmission course, which teaches technicians how to carry out efficient and professional double clutch replacements, independent workshops have access to the “very best in real-world service and repair solutions”, according to Schaeffler.
