CRP Automotive has announced that it is now offering new Rein Automotive thermostat hoses (Part Nos. CHU0457, CHU0465, CHU0484).
The parts have been introduced by the company as upgraded replacements for a range of popular BMW models. As explained by the company, the Rein Automotive thermostat hoses are designed to aid technicians in saving time on the installation and provide increased reliability overall. This is possible due to an upgraded metal connector that is pre-mounted to the hose.
“The OE hose comes equipped with a plastic connector that has a tendency to become brittle and lead to failures,” explains David Hirschhorn, CRP Automotive Brand Director. “We designed these thermostat hoses using more robust metal connectors to improve service life and give technicians more peace of mind when completing the installation.”
BMW applications for the new Rein Automotive thermostat hoses include models such as 128I, 135I, 323I, 325I/325XI, 328I, 328XI, 330I/330XI, 335I, 335IS, 335XI 525I/252XI, 528I, 528XI, 530I/530XI, 1-Series M, and Z4 from 2006 to 2013. With this product line, the overall coverage of vehicles in operation in Canada and the U.S. is more than 800,000.
The metal connector is also being offered as a separate piece (Part No. CHC0609) by Rein Automotive in case the technician only needs to replace the fitting when servicing the BMW.
