Continental, one of the world’s leading brake system manufacturers and suppliers, now offers an exclusive range of genuine OEM ATE Electronic Brake Calipers for easy replacement on popular Audi and Volkswagen models from 2016 through 2020. The new OEM disc brake calipers are pre-assembled with the electronic parking brake and designed to deliver exact fit, form, and function as the OE part, ensuring a fast and trouble-free installation. They come from the original manufacturer and are offered in the choice of same original finishes provided to the car markers: original cast metal, matte black, tornado red, and ultra-marine blue.
ATE Electronic Brake Calipers provide a simple solution for servicing and repairing electronically controlled parking brake systems. Nathan Killeen, Product Manager, ATE Brake Systems, noted that when a caliper in an electric parking brake is faulty, it’s usually necessary to replace both caliper and the electronic motor. The motor tries to compensate for the damaged caliper and eventually fails. These new caliper units are delivered pre-assembled with the electronic parking brake motor, making it easier for technicians to confidently complete the repair correctly, the first time.
Continental offers 10 ATE Electronic Brake Caliper part numbers with exclusive application coverage for Audi A3, A3 Sport-back e-tron, A3 Quattro, RS3, TT Quattro, TTS Quattro, and TT RS Quattro, and Volkswagen e-Golf, Golf R, and Jetta.
