Two new all-makes application guides for oil, air and fuel filters and wiper blades have been published by Vauxhall in a bid to boost its dealers' replacement parts business.
Each details other-make applications by vehicle brand and Vauxhall part number and extends the number of products and services available through franchised dealers to an estimated 60,000 independent garage Trade Club members in the UK. The move follows the launch of a battery all-makes application guide in October, 2000.
A spokesman for the manufacturer said: "The guides are designed to help Vauxhall dealers exploit replacement parts business in their own service departments and MasterFit workshops as well as identifying new profit opportunities through Trade Club members."
Meanwhile more than 50 new exhaust part numbers have been added to the Trade Club catalogue which currently includes cut-price offers on oil and brake and clutch fluids.
