ACS TOOL HIRE PROGRAM

The program includes nine different tool kits including a range of DCT tools

Australian Clutch Services (ACS) offers customers the opportunity to hire a range of specialised tools with the purchase of any applicable ACS clutch kit.
The ACS tool hire range has been developed to support an evolving market with the necessary tools and technical support.
This includes DCT removal and installation tools which are generally vehicle specific.
“The market in which we operate is quickly evolving with dual clutch transmission technology now starting to become commonplace in the aftermarket,” ACS Business Development Manager, Colin Jevons, said.
“Our distributors around the country are seeing a major increase in the demand for DCT clutch kits and components and it is important we can provide them with the tools and support required to install these components.
“As part of this, we have introduced the tool hire program that allows customers to hire the required tools for the clutch installation rather than having to purchase multiple vehicle specific tools.”
ACS says the hire program is proving successful and only includes a minimal fee to cover freight and logistics costs.
“The feedback from the market has been very positive with many of our distributors’ customers being able to take on these jobs now they don’t have to incur the significant investment in tools required,” Colin said.
“This has opened up the market to a broader range of independent workshops and we are proud to be able to support these workshops as they adjust to this new trend.”
The hire program currently includes nine different tool kits including a range of DCT clutch installation and removal tools. Also included is a self-adjusting clutch tool designed to assist in the installation of kits with self-adjusting pressure plates without causing the internal mechanism to incorrectly adjust during installation.
These tools cover various vehicles from Audi, Volkswagen, Hyundai, Renault, Ford, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Jeep and Kia.
ACS explains it offers a comprehensive range of DCT clutch kits, flywheels, actuators, service kits and tools for purchase; with strong stock levels for fast delivery and a comprehensive range of the latest and hard-to-find parts.
The tool hire program is available through any ACS distributor with the purchase of an applicable clutch kit.
