Haldex introduces rivet-less front and rear covers for the S-ABA-style automatic brake adjusters. The existing front and rear covers, which have a retaining rivet, will be replaced by the new covers retained by an adhesive compound.

The rear cover will have a unique grease relief, creating a designed path for grease flow. This also enhances sealing and improves tamper resistance, the company says.

The Haldex S-ABA is claimed to offer easy installation, improved performance, and extended service life.

Other features, according to Haldex: it establishes its own reference point; functions properly with the control-arm setting itself at any angle within the total range of permissible positions allowed; provides the proper lining-to-drum clearance regardless of the control-arm installation angle; solves adjustment problems caused by incorrect installation; improves performance with a more sensitive adjustment rate; lowers the risk of over-adjustment during prolonged braking; helps prevent brake wear, reducing operating and downtime costs; streamlines inventories and lowers handling and storage costs by effectively replacing several other fixed control arm brake adjusters.
