Located at the company’s Troy, Michigan, office, Tecklenburg will be responsible for establishing the strategic plan and leading the North American aftermarket team, which encompasses the U.S. and Canadian markets, to increase customer satisfaction and drive growth.
One very quick method for learning who your customers are is to observe the types of ASE certifications displayed in customer waiting rooms and around the shop’s service desks.
Pulse-modulated systems can be identified because they generally have no external Schrader valve port for testing fuel pressure.
With ASE, we have only to look forward to a brighter and more prosperous future. As with many mechanics and parts professionals, I’m getting ready to sign up for ASE’s spring 2014 test series. Looking back, it’s hard to believe that ASE is now 41 years old. During 1973, when I was teaching auto mechanics
In four-wheel, all-wheel and front-wheel drive applications, the wheel bearing hub assembly is made with two opposing bearings, and with the inner bearing races pressed onto a splined hub that slips over the splined axle shaft.
Clean and distortion-free mounting surfaces at the hub/rotor interface are required for good brake rotor performance.
In most cases, the clutch parts are new and are matched to the very close tolerances demanded by compact engine compartments and transmission and trans-axle configurations.
Most floating calipers are single-piston units designed for light-duty applications. Special anchor bolts are used to not only fasten the caliper to the steering knuckle, but also to allow the caliper to slide horizontally to center the pads on the brake rotor and compensate for pad wear.
Wear in the load-bearing ball joint is measured in thousandths of an inch vertical and horizontal play.
Because their remaining service life is difficult to estimate, timing belts must be replaced at specific mileage intervals to prevent failure.
If the vehicle happens to be hauling a load or towing a trailer, the work of the wheel bearings is drastically increased.
A chance to sell the humble and often taken-for-granted wiper blade should never be ignored.
