Tech Note: A common comment we hear from our customers is the rubber seals they received are a gray color and not a black rubber color as they expected. This is due to a soapstone based mold release solution used during the manufacturing process. It helps the rubber pieces pull out of the molds more cleanly and also helps the workers separate them when dealing in large bulk quantities. This coating is normal and can be easily removed with soap and water. After installation, a light coating of silicone grease will help protect the rubber by preventing it from drying out, thus extending its useful life.
What is the difference between OEM and Reproduction Quality?
- OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) Air Cooled VW Parts are often made in Germany. However, many German OEM suppliers have moved their production elsewhere in order to stay competitive in the current global market. When they do this the quality control still remains “OEM” standard. Examples: Boge and Sachs shocks are made in Mexico, Febi Ball Joints are made in Spain, FAG and SKF Bearings are made in Korea and other Asian countries, Bosch electrical products are often made in Brazil.
- Our Reproduction (REP) Quality Air Cooled VW Parts are manufactured to replace, fit and function similar to the OEM Part. Reproduction Quality Parts are made in various countries. We offer the Reproduction Quality as a trusted, more cost effective alternative to the OEM Quality Parts.
