Delphi extends steering & suspension range

Published:  24 August, 2017

Delphi Product & Service Solutions has launched 175 new steering part numbers. The latest additions are on top of 400 steering part numbers launched during 2016.

The extended range comprises key steering parts such as wishbones, inner/outer tie-rods, link stabilisers, rubber-to-metal, ball joints and rod assemblies, fitted to more than 1000 applications (make/model/engine size). This includes popular UK vehicles such as: Citroen C4 Picasso II (2013 -), Ford Transit (2012 -), Hyundai i40 (2011-), Mini Cooper One (2010-), Peugeot 308 II (2014-), Range Rover Sport (2013-), Renault Clio (2012-), Vauxhall Mokka (2012-).

Together, Delphi's total steering range covers over 24,500 applications and more than 90 percent of the European vehicle parc. Further range development is planned throughout 2017, with the introduction of more than 450 part numbers.

The latest steering introductions can be found on TecDoc where Delphi is certified as a "A Class" supplier of data, in addition to its online catalogue, delphicat.com.

    The smallest rust particles, dirt and water can cause fatal damage to the fuel injection system and to combat this, Delphi continues to grow its filter programme. Ten NTR diesel filters and two petrol filters cover passenger cars, light vans and heavy duty applications, including Audi, BMW, Citroen, Dodge, Fiat, Ford, Mercedes, Volkswagen, Vauxhall and Volvo models.

  • Premature ageing 

    Vehicles equipped with new fuel efficient engines and post-treatment systems require new types of lubricant - oil containing high levels of SAPS can clog the diesel particulate filter and the EGR valve, for instance. Delphi's low SAPS oils are specifically designed for petrol, diesel and direct injection diesel engines equipped with DPFs and catalysts. Its lubricants range includes engine oils, gear oils, transmission and hydraulic fluids. The firm says it's vital to check the colour and viscosity of oil - black oil means an immediate service is needed but if the oil is not darkening at all during use, it's not performing as it should.

  • Old and new technologies working together 

    Turbochargers play a significant role in downsized engines which need to also provide great fuel economy and performance while meeting stricter emission regulations. 'Chargers with variable geometry were developed to optimise the turbo for both low and high-engine speeds, to reduce traditional turbo lag to improve engine efficiency, fuel economy and drivability. Many manufacturers and distributors have a new-only policy when replacing failed variable geometry turbochargers due to the specialist nature of the repair. Delphi has 40 years' remanufacturing experience under its belt and all replaced parts on its reman 'chargers undergo rigorous tests to OE specifications. 150 new turbochargers will join the programme this year to cover 75% of European applications, both diesel and petrol. A practical training course is available, detailing its operation, surrounding system components and best practices for diagnosing and identifying failures, such as boost pressure and oil damage, as well as correct maintenance and installation techniques. Diagnostic support on its DS series of tools will help pinpoint where in the intake or exhaust circuit a fault has occurred as a turbocharger fault code may be caused by a faulty air flow meter, EGR valve or air leak.
