MOPAR® Parts & Accessories are solely designed for Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, Ram and SRT vehicles to guarantee the highest levels of performance and come with a 1 year / 20,000 km warranty
In addition to removing solid particles, passenger compartment filters combined with activated carbon can filter odours and gas, minimise health risks and improve the feeling of well-being in the car.
A good quality air cleaner must guarantee over 99% efficiency, meaning its capability of withholding contaminating particles.
The oil filter must be replaced at each oil change.
An efficient particulate filters eliminates 95% of the produced particulate matter into the atmosphere
An efficient braking system is the fundamental requirement for active safety for your vehicle. The apparently simple action of pressing the brake pedal sets off a series of mechanisms aimed at reducing the speed of the vehicle or stopping it all together. The brake pedal, the pump, the lines, the pads, the disc, the callipers and the drums are the main components of the braking system. In order to ensure the highest level of safety, all these parts must be checked and serviced regularly together with the brake fluid. Taking care of the braking system means guaranteeing your safety, that of your passengers but also of pedestrians, too.
Combining the right balance of various elements, such as resin, rubber, talc, metal, carbon fibre, glass and ceramic, is fundamental to obtain the compound needed to make a brake pad. This is essential to guarantee effective braking at any operating temperature.
"Stopping distance" is the space travelled by a vehicle from when the driver perceives a danger until the vehicle comes to a complete stop: it is calculated by adding the reaction distance and the braking distance. An effective braking system is critical and can be the difference between driving safety or taking risks.
The possibility of the braking system failing suddenly is very unlikely, except for the chance of accidental breakage of the brake lines. Very often, however, you get accustomed to driving with worn brakes and adapt your driving style as a consequence.The main symptoms of a braking system which requires immediate maintenance are:
Having efficient wipers is essential to travel safely giving you good visibility of the road. This is why the wipers must always be in perfect conditions so as to ensure optimal visibility in all weather conditions like rain and snow. The wiper blades must ensure at all wiping speeds, uniform wiping and cleaning all year round. This you can rely on with the wiper blades distributed by MOPAR® for Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Fiat Professional, Jeep® and Abarth vehicles, because they are designed to measure and adapt perfectly to the shape and inclination of the windscreen of all FCA vehicles.
Nearly 20% of all road accidents are caused by poor visibility. Efficient wipers and lights, together with adequate ventilation of the passenger compartment, help to improve visibility.
The best wiper blades preserve their cleaning properties for up to six months, during which they sweep some 125,000 times. This means cleaning a surface equal to thirteen soccer fields.
The rubber of the blade starts deteriorating after the first months.
Cleaning the rubber part is quick and easy: just wipe the two sides of the rubber profile with a cloth dipped in degreasing detergent moving in the direction of its length. Periodically removing dust and other solid debris helps maintain wiping efficient for longer.
To prevent premature damage to the rubber, do not use the wiper to de-ice the windscreen.
Using a specific windscreen detergent liquid is always better than water: it helps the blades to run smoothly, provides better surface cleaning and speeds up the elimination of water from the windscreen.
The battery is one of the main components. The correct operation of the vehicle and its components depend on it. An original battery distributed by MOPAR® perfectly integrates with the electric system of the vehicle and is designed according to its specific needs to ensure efficiency electric balancing. Battery capacity, expressed in Ampere/hour, must be able to provide the energy needed to start the car even in extreme climate conditions. Choosing a battery distributed by MOPAR® means increasing the efficiency and reliability of your car.
Over 80% of all roadside assistance operations are caused by problems to the ignition system.
Battery fluid is very corrosive. It is advisable to have the battery replaced at a workshop which is equipped to dispose of it properly respecting the environment.
A weak battery cannot provide enough energy to start a cold engine during the winter. The best preventive measure to avoid unpleasant problems is to have the battery and recharging system checked once a year to keep them both in perfect working order.
Shock absorbers are the heart of the vehicle's suspension system. The driving comfort, stability and vehicles safety depends on them. The task of the dampers is to mitigate the effect of road roughness, damping vibrations and keep the constant contact between the wheels and the road surface in every driving situation. A complete set of efficient and high quality shock absorbers, such as those designed by Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Fiat Professional, Abarth and Jeep and distributed by Mopar®, ensures consistent and high driving stability, but are also crucial for the level of comfort and safety.
The wear of the shock absorbers is slow and progressive, but it inexorably effects on many components of the suspension system such as tyres, springs and other mechanical elements of the car. Normally we tend to compensate for the shock absorbers loss of effectiveness by changing and trying to adapt these to driving style, and most of the time without realizing the damage.
It is estimated that over 50% of the vehicles travels with worn or damaged shock absorbers.
If a vehicle traveling at 80 km /h with shock absorbers that are not in perfect condition, the braking distance can also increase to 2 or 3 meters compared to what would occur in normal conditions.
The timing belt is the element that maximize the synchrony between valves and pistons. Given its important function, it is essential to check the condition of the belt regularly and replace when worn with original Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Fiat Professional, Abarth Jeep® parts, distributed by Mopar®. Guaranteeing perfect compatibility with the car engine.
Replacing the timing belt, taking into account the mileage and times given on the vehicles Owners Hand Book, it ensures greater safety and avoid the risk of seriously damaging the engine, which would involve a huge cost for the repair.
The original timing belt ensures the same efficiency of the components mounted on the new vehicle. Their level of quality, in terms of strength and reliability is proven by strict controls.
