Parts supplier FAI has issued all official Goodyear fitting centres with stickers to be fitted under the engine bonnet to indicate the last time a cambelt was changed. This simple solution aims to warn the driver and the mechanic to check the status of the cambelt and therefore avoid potential expensive failure. This is a more permanent alternative to the existing warning card designed to hang on the interior mirror.
“The sticker was requested at one of our regular training sessions. It's a simple idea that really works – you change the cambelt or the complete cambelt kit and note the date for future reference – it really is as simple as that, “ says Malcolm Rosher, marketing director, FAI.
Each official Goodyear fitting centre has been issued with a sheet of stickers – more are available, free of charge, on request.
