Light commercial vehicles from the Volkswagen Group are an extremely popular choice in Ireland for a wide range of uses. The Transporter is hugely popular with trades-people and delivery drivers, while the California is the first choice when it comes to Campervans. These vehicles can clock up big mileages, so they tend to come into the workshop for belt replacement relatively soon. 


To ensure workshop mechanics can rely on OE quality when carrying out this work, Continental has added two new Elast belts to its range: the 6PK860 Elast and 6PK868 Elast multi V-belts. Together, they cover over 600,000 vehicle applications on the European market. 

Continental engineer’s says that Elast belts can be awkward to fit due to the cramped engine bay. To combat this they have developed the UNI TOOL ELAST, a high-quality universal tool that makes it much easier to fit and remove elastic multi V-belts. You can see the tool in use in the video below.   

Technicians should also note that two values are used for indicating the length of an elastic multi V-belt: the production length (how long the belt is in the packaging) and the operational length (the length of the belt once it has been fitted). The latter value is naturally always a little larger. When selecting a suitable belt, the fitter can use the Continental PIC (product information centre) online resource for assistance. Here they will also find full application information. 

These Continental Elast Belts for VW applications are available from stockist nationwide.
