ContiTech Pro Series Plus Timing Kits Aid Specific Service Issues

More than 150 kits available for more than 2,000 applications.
CRANBURY, N.J. — CRP Automotive offers a range of ContiTech Pro Series Plus Timing Kits that solve special service problems by providing technicians with all of the components needed to perform a proper timing belt and water pump service, the company says. CRP also includes additional components to help technicians handle specific application issues that are typically encountered during the service.


113969ContiTimi_00000064277Some water pumps use a plastic impeller and are very prone to failure on select European models, the company says. CRP offers professional repair technicians a choice by providing kits with either an OE-style plastic or a more robust metal impeller that helps to prevent failure. Certain water pump housings have corrosion issues, making pump replacement very difficult and costly. For these applications, CRP offers kit versions that include new water pump housing, so professional service technicians have the right part when they need it.

“These Problem Solver kits have been developed as a result of extensive field research conducted with our distribution and professional service technician customers. Wherever possible, we’ve made an effort to add value to our ContiTech kits by including additional parts that our customer will need for a successful timing belt service,” said Mike Palm, VP of sales and marketing at CRP.

ContiTech Pro Series Plus kits also include front cam and balance shaft seals. CRP says it uses seals that match or exceed all of the OE specs for ID, OD, width and material, unlike some competitors who the company says use a generic seal that only matches ID and OD. The kits are built around the genuine, OE-quality ContiTech timing belt and include the water pump, front cam and balance shaft seals, tensioners and idlers when needed and packaged to the exact specifications for the vehicle. All components are sourced from OE-quality suppliers and covered by a warranty that matches the original manufacturer’s belt replacement interval.
