Continental has expanded the company’s line of aftermarket ATE electronic parking brake calipers for easy installation on some of the most popular European makes.
The 10 newly released parts provide coverage for more than 5 million VIO including models from BMW, Volkswagen, Audi, and Volvo from 2016 through 2021, according to the company.
The new ATE electronic parking brake (EPB) calipers are direct OE replacement parts designed to the manufacturers’ OE specifications. They’re all new parts, not remanufactured, Continental noted.
“Continental helped make EPB calipers popular with OEMs,” notes Dan Caciolo, head of product management at Continental. “Now we’re seeing rising demand for the electronic parking brake calipers in the aftermarket. We will continue to expand our coverage to meet growing product demand.”
Application coverage on the ATE EPB calipers includes Audi A3 Quattro, Q3; BMW 228i Gran Coupe, 228i xDrive, i3, i3s, X1 and X2; Mini Cooper, Clubman and Countryman; Volkswagen Arteon, Atlas and Tiguan; and the Volvo XC90.
ATE EPB calipers are provided as complete units that include a loaded caliper and the servo motor that provides the parking-brake function. Depending on the model, the new ATE EPB brake calipers are available in matte black, tornado red and ultramarine blue.
