VDO Expands Power Door Lock Actuators Program As Service Calls Rise

Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket has expanded its VDO Power Door Lock Actuator aftermarket program to over 130 SKUs.
The actuator line now provides excellent European, Asian, and domestic vehicle application coverage, from model years 1977 to 2011 including multiple exclusive applications for popular European vehicles from 1983 to date. Plus, recently added Ford applications help deliver additional coverage for over 800,000 vehicles.

Door lock service calls rising
With more than 90% of the cars and light trucks sold in North America fitted with power door locks as standard equipment, the repair market is steadily rising as these vehicles come in for service. “Our program includes not only expanded coverage for makes and models, but also applications as well. In addition to entry doors, we’ve got SKUs for actuators on power fuel doors, trunk lids, lift gates (rear hatches) and lift gate glass,” notes David Maclay, VDO product manager.
The VDO Power Door Lock Actuator program provides a very a competitive edge for Continental Corporation’s retail partners and service technician customers because it creates sales and service opportunities that were primarily captured by car dealers and salvage yards.
VDO Power Door Lock Actuators are designed to OE specs for vehicle specific fit, performance and reliability, and come standard with original equipment electrical connections. They are made to OE quality standards in ISO certified facilities to the same quality standards as the OE components supplied by Continental to automakers worldwide.
