The catalogue also covers many popular European makes including Alfa Romeo, Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Peugeot and Volkswagen.

OEM standard, affordably priced

Product Manager, Anthony Appleby says the new catalogue reflects Kelpro’s ongoing commitment to meeting market demand for top quality aftermarket parts. “We had consistent feedback from customers that they wanted a high quality range of window regulators (lifts) and window switches at an affordable price point,” he says.

“Kelpro has responded with our brand new catalogue that offers reasonably priced OEM equivalent parts that workshops and  crash repairers can fit to their customers’ vehicles with confidence.”

Durable, reliable and easy to install

Whether through wear and tear or as the result of a collision, power windows that don’t open or close, operate slowly, noisily or inefficiently are a real pain for drivers, who want a durable repair that won’t cost the earth. Window regulators (lifts) and window switches can be fiddly parts to replace, and vehicle owners rightly expect any repairs to last. “With Kelpro’s new range, workshops and  crash repairers can be confident they are fitting a durable replacement window regulator (lift) or switch that will work well and deliver longevity for the customer every time,” says Anthony.

May 21, 2014 Stay on the front foot with Kelpro’s latest Engine Mount Catalogue

Kelpro Engine Mount Catalogue Ed 9

Sourcing the correct engine mount is simple with the latest Engine Mount Catalogue from Kelpro.

Including over 200 new lines, the Kelpro Engine Mount range now consists of more than 1,700 individual mounts. With the Kelpro Engine Mount Catalogue, you can confidently and quickly source engine mounts for virtually any vehicle in the Australian car park.

The new Kelpro Engine Mount Catalogue is easy to read and includes high quality images in the pictorial section.  Many mount images include dimensions to help customers identify difficult application listings before placing the order.

 “The Kelpro Engine Mount Catalogue is an essential reference guide for workshops. To maintain a competitive advantage in the market and be capable of servicing the wide range of vehicles on the road today, you need to be able to obtain the correct engine mount quickly and with complete confidence,” says Motospecs Product Manager, Tim Wiggins.

Servicing the complex modern vehicle

Original equipment manufacturers are designing increasingly elaborate engines and engine mounts in a bid to reduce vehicle noise, vibration and harshness. Variations such as hydraulic, multiple layer and engine oil pressure assisted mounts are typical of the newer styles being featured in today’s vehicles. In addition, the number of engine mounts has increased – many front wheel drive vehicles now typically feature up to five engine mounts.

Today’s complex new engine designs create additional challenges for workshops and mechanics when servicing and repairing the vast range of vehicles now commonplace on Australian roads.

“The new Kelpro Engine Mount Catalogue helps workshops deal with the complexity of modern vehicles. Our enormous range of engine mounts means there is every chance of finding the Mount you need, no matter what the make or model,” says Tim.

“Gone are the days when most Australians drove a Holden or Ford. With customers now bringing in vehicles from all over the world including Japan, Europe, Korea and China, workshops need to be prepared.”

The top quality you’d expect from Kelpro

Kelpro is a trusted brand that consistently delivers on range, availability, pricing and know-how. Sourced from only the most reputable suppliers, Kelpro engine mounts are manufactured to OE standard and very high quality, which is vital given the additional pressure on today’s engine mounts.

“Most modern vehicles are front wheel drive and have more compact engine bays than rear wheel drive vehicles, and this places more load on the engine mounts,” explains Tim.

“Many of today’s engines also produce a much higher degree of horse power and torque, which puts additional load on the engine mounts, in particular the torsional mounts. Meanwhile, transmission mounts support the whole weight of the transmission, so durability is critical for these mounts.”

Kelpro is one of the leaders in the development of automotive aftermarket engine mounts, and as Kelpro engine mounts are competitively priced, you’re not only guaranteed an OE standard part, it won’t break the bank!

March 17, 2014 New Kelpro Oil Seal catalogue the most comprehensive ever

Kelpro Oil seal CatalogueEdition 5 of the Kelpro Oil Seal catalogue has just been released.

An invaluable resource for workshops, the revised edition is the most comprehensive oil seal catalogue in the local automotive aftermarket, from Kelpro – one of the leading oil seal suppliers in Australia and New Zealand. The Kelpro Oil Seal catalogue features more than 300 new part numbers and includes engine, axle and transmission seals. In total, the new catalogue comprises more than 1,100 individual seals, covering a greater percentage of the Australian car park.

Motospecs product manager, Tim Wiggins, says the new catalogue – which is available as hard copy or online at www.kelpro.com.au – is easy to read and includes essential information for workshops and repairers.  “In particular, the catalogue’s application guide now includes a note section with many sizes listed, making part identification easier. It also includes a complete oil seal size listing at the back, which is a helpful reference,” says Tim. Considerable effort and research has gone into ensuring the Kelpro oil seal range meets the needs of today’s workshops, servicing modern vehicles.

“Over the last ten years, vehicles have been engineered to generate more speed, which in turn creates more heat in the engine. As a result, today’s oil seals need to be able to tolerate higher temperatures,” says Tim. “All Kelpro oil seals are made from high performance polymers that comply with high speed and high temperature specifications. Seals made from rubber compounds (NBR) will no longer cope with the demands of a modern engine.”

The replacement of quality seals is critical to ensuring cars don’t return to the workshop with oil leaks. The latest range of Kelpro oil seals are the highest quality, made to exacting OE standards and material specifications. “This includes exact OE material specifications on engine and transmission oil seals for most vehicle applications from 1996.” “Kelpro oil seals will deliver an exact OE fit, which is vital if these crucial parts are going to do their job.” Oil seals are critical to maintaining the engine’s integrity and ensuring engine, transmission and differential oils don’t leak.

Kelpro Part No 98365

Kelpro Part No 98653“Because of Kelpro’s excellent, long-standing relationships with manufacturers and suppliers all over the world, we are able to provide an extensive range of OE equivalent oil seals that will fit perfectly first time, every time.” For more information or to request a copy of the new Kelpro Oil Seals catalogue (Part No: CAT-KOS5), please contact: 1800 605 673
