Smoothly Does It: New TVDs with Assembly Bolts

Torsional vibration dampers (TVDs) reduce vibrations in the crankshaft to ensure the belt runs smoothly. This makes for a more comfortable ride and at the same time prolongs the service life of belt drive components.

Ten new TVD pulleys have been added to our range. All come with the relevant fixing bolt, so our customers no longer need to order the bolts separately. “In most cases, it makes sense to change the bolt when you change the TVD pulley,” says Adrian Rothschild, head of product management EMEA. Why? “Because the manufacturer's specs often stipulate that a new bolt is required when the TVD is replaced. And now we supply these expansion bolts as part of the package.” We’re aiming to add further items to the range, as these complete packages give fitters quick access to all the parts they need to replace a TVD pulley. You can identify them by the “S” at the end of the type designation and they cover all the most important applications:

VD1094S for e.g. Citroen 1.6 HDi
VD1080S for e.g. Peugeot 2.0 HDi
VD1104S for e.g. Nissan 1.9 dCi
VD1002S for e.g. VW 2.TDi
VD1105S for e.g. BMW 3.0d
VD1110S for e.g. Ford 2.0D
VD1120S for e.g. BMW 2.0d
VD1113S for e.g. Renault 1.5 dCi
VD1127S for e.g. BMW 18d
VD1031S for e.g. Opel 2.2DTI

Further information is available, as usual, at the PIC or in TecDoc-based online catalogues.

And please note: we’d be delighted to receive feedback from the field (by e-mail to adrian.rothschild@continental.com). This will help us as we expand our product range. In the course of 2021 we’re aiming to offer a TVD solution for 80% of all vehicles in Europe – and to achieve the same success here as with our TVD pulleys for the Volkswagen Group’s EA211 engine family.
