Torsional Vibration Damper bolts are not universal, Corteco warns

TVD bolts may be common to a number of different vehicle models but they are not a universal fit, experts say

Torsional Vibration Damper bolts are not universal, Corteco warns
Corteco's Torsional Vibration Damper (TVD).

Each TVD bolt is matched to and balanced for individual models, Corteco has said in a recent statement.

TVD bolts are designed to ‘stretch’ with use, that means that once used, bolts must never be re-fitted.

Corteco said: “Re-fitting used bolts leads to inevitable issues with TVDs and the other components in the drive system.

“Re-use makes early drive system failure inevitable.”

Corteco, the aftermarket distribution arm of OE component manufacturer Freudenberg, is helping to make the need to use freshly supplied TVD bolts with every new installation clearer, by supplying TVD kits.
