NEWSDESK What’s new from the market GATES TENSIONER UPDATE FAHREN NTR Both Gates and Litens are OE on the VAG tensioner T43219 which is included in the fast moving 5649XS SBDS Kits. Gates aftermarket kits produced before August 4 have the Litens tensioner. Kits produced after that date have the Gates tensioner. Fahren has recently added 10 new-to-rangebrake pads, covering over 1.4 million UK vehicles. Highlights include: SBDS Kits with the T43219 tensioner include: •  FBP0221: Front Pads for Kia Sportage 1.7 (2010-2015) •  FBP0219: Front Pads for Iveco Daily 2.3 (2011-2014) • FBP0220: Rear Pads for Mini 1.6 (2006-2012) • K025649XS: PowerGrip Timing Belt Kit •  KP25649XS-1: PowerGrip Timing Belt Kit plus Water Pump Although both tensioners look different (the Gates tensioner has no retaining lug), they are perfectly interchangeable. There is a detailed installation instruction included in the kit boxes. Gates tensioner must be rotated counter-clockwise whereas the Litens tensioner must be rotated clockwise. To clearly communicate this, Gates Tech Tip n° 12 with self-explanatory pictures will be provided in the kit boxes. For more information, please speak with your local FPS representative.
