INA FEAD Kit

VALLEY CITY, Ohio — The new INA FEAD KIT is now offered by Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket as a complete solution for repairing front-end accessory drives (FEAD). This product addresses the increasing complexity of a system supplying vital vehicle functions with ever-increasing loads. For many popular European applications, Schaeffler offers a tailor-made INA FEAD KIT. The kit contains all the wear components that need to be replaced regularly, eliminating the need to source these components individually.

Modern vehicle maintenance requires replacement of several FEAD system components, not just the belt. This is due to features such as high output alternators and start-stop systems which increase FEAD system complexity. Additionally, down-sized engines with greater torque variation and stricter emission regulations increase demands on the entire FEAD system.

“As a development partner to vehicle manufacturers, Schaeffler possesses high levels of know-how when it comes to the different components in the front-end accessory drive,” says Christian Kos, senior manager category management engine, Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket. “We have decades of experience in the independent Aftermarket that allow us to combine the right components for repair.

With the INA FEAD KIT, we are setting a higher standard for repairing front-end accessory drives.” The INA FEAD KIT always includes the belt, tensioner and idler pulleys, and all accessory parts needed. Depending on the application, the repair solution may also contain an overrunning alternator pulley (OAP) or water pump. For improved repair time and convenience, the kit contains the right belt routing diagram for the vehicle.

The number of vehicle manufactures specifying FEAD belt and component replacement intervals is increasing. The INA FEAD KIT from Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket sets the new standard for the repair of front end accessory drive systems.

Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket has been responsible for the Group’s global automotive replacement parts business for the LuK, INA and FAG brands for more than 35 years from its headquarters in Langen, Germany. With a global network of approximately 11,500 distribution partners and 30 sales and representative offices, the company is known for its close proximity to customers and for delivering superior service.INA FEAD Kit
