ContiTech: New Tool for Changing Elastic Belts

Box ELAST TOOL F01 for installing elastic V-ribbed belts - for Ford and Volvo engines
Special tool needed for installing elastic V-ribbed belts on certain Ford and Volvo engines: The ELAST TOOL F01 from the ContiTech Power Trans-mission Group (PresseBox) (Hannover, ) The ContiTech Power Transmission Group service offering for the automotive aftermarket now includes a new tool box: The ELAST TOOL F01 special tool for installing elastic V-ribbed belts for Ford and Volvo engines is now available.

Installing elastic V-ribbed belts can occasionally be a bit of a chore on certain Ford and Volvo engines. The ContiTech ELAST TOOL F01 now gives repair shops a specialist tool that makes changing alternator belts easy - on Ford Focus, C-Max and Mondeo 1.4/1.6 l gasoline models as well as on Volvo S40, C30 and V50 1.6 l gasoline models. Universal tools do not work on these engines because they would have the belt slipping off the water pump's collarless disk.

The second, shorter belt on the belt drive - for the air conditioning compressor or power steering pump, depending on the vehicle - can be changed using the installation device in the relevant complete package, or with the universal UNI TOOL ELAST from ContiTech.

A flyer for the new tool box, which also includes illustrated installation guidelines, is also available. It can be browsed or downloaded from the new Virtual Sales Presenter online service at online, and is also available from the download area at
