In the automotive industry - whether it's car manufacturers, car dealers, or wholesalers in the aftermarket - consolidating has meant that over the last decade many have become relatively few. Most will agree that this development has taken place very quickly, creating new opportunities on the one hand, but also many challenges for the players in the automotive industry on the other hand. However, experts and futurists concede that the next few decades will bring far more profound changes in the industry. The topic is quite extensive, which is why we will publish a series of articles to examine the current factors and share our assessment of the consequences for the industry.
Once again we have news regarding parts for cars with alternative driveline. At Triscan you can now get parts within undercarriage and engine control for models from Chevrolet, Citroën, Hyundai, Kia, Mercedes, Mitsubishi, Opel, Peugeot, Toyota and VW.
We now offer Budweg electric motors for cars equipped with electrically operated parking brake - EPB. When the electrically operated parking brake fails, the brake caliper is usually okay. In such cases, there is a lot of money to be saved when it is only the electric motor that is replaced.
Based on more than 30,000 car owner reviews collected in 2018 and analyzed by the Autobutler online quoting portal, Fair AutoService in Holstebro can be proud to have been voted the 3rd best workshop in Denmark. We visited the Fair Autoservice to learn about their recipe for success.
Several of the steering parts suppliers on the independent aftermarket have gradually built up a programme of reinforced steering parts. These alternatives are developed when it turns out that the lifetime of the original design does not meet expectations. At first glance, this sounds like good idea, but is it that simple - and what are our thoughts on this subject?
In an earlier article, we have already reported that we have developed parts for the Tesla Model S. The status today is that the 13 parts are ready for delivery in our warehouses. Get an overview of what parts are here and what parts for Tesla our program will be expanded with shortly.
The struggle for market share of the automotive aftermarket intensifies. Price, quality and delivery speed are very important parameters, but the ability to offer smart digital solutions - including car repair shop management systems, is getting more and more important. In collaboration with several wholesalers and an international network of experienced professionals with practical experience in the development of car repair shop management systems, we have developed a platform, which has internally been giving the name - TriSys. With this initiative, we, together with wholesalers and their car repair shop customers, want to secure market shares for the free aftermarket, which in more areas is under increasing pressure.
AUTO-G Denmark, part of GROUPAUTO International, has used the TriSys platform to develop their own car repair shop management system - Gplan. Anticipation has been high, ever since the introduction - and in just 6 weeks, 25 systems are up and running. We have visited C.B. Auto, which was one of the first car repair shops to use Gplan, to hear about their experiences.
You might know someone, maybe it’s even yourself, who has speculated about the cause of starting problems, lack of traction or increasing smoke in vehicles with a PSA 1.6 HDI engine? Then read on, to find some useful information.
A new newsletter a new test device. Due to the very positive effect our Triscan Test Center has on our customer service and internal quality assurance service, we continue to invest in expanding it. Our newly built ABS tester is the latest addition. Here we describe how this works and why it is so valuable.
Besides providing a quick overview of our sensor programme, the new 24-page sensor brochure also contains useful information about the function, design, fitting and common error codes.
Since the introduction of the first 3 sensor groups just over 2 years ago, another 8 have been added. The program now has 11 product groups and we can assure that more will follow. As we can see the interest and demand for sensors rise continuously, we find that it is time to present our current program in a brochure that gives readers a quick and easy overview of the broad product range.
Here at Triscan quality has priority. Therefore, producers are visited regularly and spot checking is carried out on products when they arrive at our central warehouse. Furthermore, we carry out extensive tests internally, both on our own and the products of our competitors. Two recent examples have once again proven why in-house testing is important and why it is so important to expand in this area.
Many workshops and wholesalers have gradually become acquainted with the frequently used EGR-valve that applies to diesel engines of the types 1.4, 1.6, 1.9 and 2.0 TDIs. Despite several attempts, VAG or other aftermarket actors have not succeeded in solving the problem. Based on our own technical studies, we in this article unveil why the EGR valve stops working too quickly.
It is not always certain that error codes give a true and fair view of which parts should be replaced to solve a problem. And all too often, this leads to questioning of the quality of the replaced part, which, logically, does not solve the real problem.
We are constantly expanding our program of oil drain plugs - and, as something new, we can now also offer the following oil drain plug and tool for VAG with TFSI and TSI engines.
All too often it is not the oxygen sensor, which is responsible for the error messages, that generally point in that direction. This especially applies in the case where wideband sensors are used instead of conventional O2 sensors. This is also why, it is very important to pay extra attention in the troubleshooting process with this kind of sensor. Learn more about the system design and source of errors in this article.
Cleaning the cooling system when replacing the water pump has suddenly become a hot topic. The garages do of course wonder why this extra workflow suddenly is necessary when it never before has been a requirement? Some car owners will probably also be puzzled by the extra posting on the garage bill, and therefore the garages should be able to provide them with a well-based answer. The explanation is not quite simple, but let us start with the reason why it is necessary: the water pump.
Triscan has once again expanded its already comprehensive sensor programme, which now also includes more than 190 references of EGR valves in OE quality. The EGR valves will to in TriWeb from mid September and in TecDoc from October 1st.
A lot has happened within gearshift cables since Triscan in 2012 introduced them in the product range. At that time, we started out with the introduction of a little more than 100 cables - primarily for European cars - and since then the programme has grown to 162 references.
At Triscan we are focused on keeping the yellow jersey and the title as European champion in offering the widest steering part programme. The task is challenging and not as simple and straightforward as one might think - and it is not uncommon that we even initiate development and production of steering parts.
As one of the only suppliers in the market, Triscan now offers the original parabolic spring for Mercedes Sprinter 1995-2006 made from fiberglass strengthened composite.
One of the main advantages of using a composite spring rather than a conventional steel spring is to achieve a weight saving of not less than 19 kg.
Over the past few years’ expansion within the brake system parts programme, Triscan has almost become a OneStop shop within this area. With a coverage of the car parc of up to 97%, the garages are able to get the necessary spare parts for even the more rare cars.
On certain types of water pumps, Volvo has chosen to make a different type of pulley than usual. This pulley has fewer teeth and protects the timing belt in the belt drive.
As a supplier of spare parts for garages it is necessary to stay updated constantly and be able to disseminate information on business opportunities and the latest product knowledge. However, at what time of day and on what day of week do you have the time to read the news? Do you prefer to seek out the news yourself or to receive it? Would you rather receive news in electronic or printed format - or a combination of both?
The clip is sold originally as an individual component (PSA OE 4341.14), but at a cost far exceeding the value of the cables - and therefore making a repair costly.
In Triscans attempt to make sourcing of complex product groups easy for wholesalers and distributors, Triscan has expanded its already extensive sensor program with water temperature sensors, camshaft position sensors, crankshaft position sensors and throttle bodies.
The increased demand for even more comfort in cars, e.g. air conditioning, seat heating and other comfort facilities, puts pressure on the capacity of the car’s alternator. Therefore, the car manufacturers have started using even more powerful alternators, which especially in situations of deceleration put strain on the micro-v belt.
Triscan now the exclusive supplies and keeps in stock the new thermostat for Citroen and Peugeot PSA 1.4 HDI HDI/1.6 – ref. no. 8620 43000. Below is a list of the models, where the new thermostat can be used.

It is no secret that Triscan excels in a wide programme within steering parts of excellent quality. With more than 6.000 references, you will get very wide coverage of the entire car parc* as a steering part customer at Triscan (based on an analysis from TecDoc data) – it can hardly be done any better!
A defective steering rack or power steering pump is never a pleasant experience for the car owner, but the repairs that need to be done can soon turn out to be even more extensive if the mechanic does not remember to clean the hydraulic system when installing the new power steering pump or steering rack. A new spare part in an unclean servo system can lead to undesirable wear of the servo system components, and in the worst case scenario they may be damaged after a short time.
Now Triscan supplies two assortments with oil drain plugs. Each assortment contains 13 different oil drain plugs with matching gaskets.
With these assortments you are very well stocked as they cover most cars. The development of the program is ongoing – and you can always find the latest references in Triweb. Here you will also find separate gaskets and oil drain plugs for refilling the assortment box.
