“We have changed the layout of the catalogue to provide additional information to enable the customer to have all the essential details to select the right parts and fit them to the highest of standards. With this in mind the extra information includes OES part numbers, radiator sizes, the quantity of coolant required for the application and the vehicle manufacturers recommended anti-freeze dosage. The catalogue also contains a higher content of technical information to help the customer make the correct application”, adds Kevin.
The new catalogue covers 96% of the UK vehicle parc coverage and contains approximately 300 new applications, covering the newest of vehicle releases such as, Ford Fiesta Mk5, Land Rover Freelander, Rover 25 & 45, Saab 9-5, Vauxhall Corsa Mk2 and Vectra C.
The catalogue is split into 4 main sections: radiators, radiator fan motors, heater radiators and intercoolers, all comprising of an application guide, picture guide and buyers guide, with a complete cross reference list at the back.
The introductory pages include a 'new to range' listing but are predominantly dedicated to technical information on Do's and Don'ts when filling the cooling system, pictures & descriptions of the range of bungs and blank plugs available and fault diagnosis information.
Commenting on the latest Engine Cooling Catalogue, Kevin Brown says: “Our catalogue is another example of Valeo's efforts to listen to what the customer wants and ensure we constructively use their feedback to make our products and services of more value to them. This is a particularly useful tool providing the most comprehensive yet user-friendly information in terms of design and content.
