Continental has expanded its VDO HVAC motors with exclusive aftermarket coverage of Subaru blower motors.
The HVAC assembly is offered for Subaru’s Impreza, WRX and Outback sedan and wagon models from 2002-2007.
VDO product manager Rick Wagner said the motor came to be thanks to installer-level field research to figure out what technicians needed. “As a result,” he said, “we were able to determine the HVAC motors most in demand and which features are essential for today’s complex automotive heating and cooling systems. Because more and more OE components are installed as modules, the complete VDO HVAC motor assembly makes for easy and trouble-free replacement. It eliminates the installation guesswork found in other brands and restores like new performance.”
The VDO motors follow the exact electrical connectors mandated by the specific vehicle’s application. That means no flying leads or wire splicing is needed. VDO mounting flanges and ventilation tubes are in the same position and configuration as the factory units, Continental said.
“Our VDO line is built on many years of proven experience and the ability to produce HVAC motors that deliver smooth, quiet and long lasting operation,” Wagner said. “We do use not universal application motors nor take any other short cuts that can compromise service life. Our motors are designed to meet the specific performance and cooling requirements of the vehicle.”
