Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket, a leading aftermarket supplier of OE-engineered aftermarket parts for HVAC and engine cooling, door systems, brake systems, tire pressure monitoring systems, engine management, fuel systems and instrumentation, has expanded its full line of VDO HVAC motors with what the company says is exclusive aftermarket coverage of Subaru blower motors.
The new line addition, PM4114, includes a complete HVAC motor, wheel and housing assembly for 2002-’07 Subaru Impreza, WRX and Outback sedans and wagons.
According to Rick Wagner, VDO product manager, “This new motor comes from sound field research at the installer level to determine the needs of our professional technician customers. As a result, we were able to determine the HVAC motors most in demand and which features are essential for today’s complex automotive heating and cooling systems. Because more and more OE components are installed as modules, the complete VDO HVAC motor assembly makes for an easy and trouble-free replacement. It eliminates the installation guesswork found in other brands and restores like new performance.”
All VDO motors incorporate the exact electrical connectors required by the specific vehicle application. No flying leads or wire splicing is required. VDO mounting flanges and ventilation tubes are in the same position and configuration as the factory units, the company adds.
Wagner noted, “Our VDO line is built on many years of proven experience and the ability to produce HVAC motors that deliver smooth, quiet and long lasting operation. We do use not universal application motors nor take any other shortcuts that can compromise service life. Our motors are designed to meet the specific performance and cooling requirements of the vehicle.”
