Chinese Counterfeit Part

Dear Distribution Partners,

Recently, we have had a number of global distributors and installers contact us regarding our 2.0L VW/Audi timing belt tensioner OE# 06D 109 243B. The complaints have focused around difficulties during installation. After analysis, Litens has confirmed that all the samples submitted were COUNTERFEIT parts produced using the Litens Brand as well as the O.E. logos and part numbers.

The Litens Automotive Group has begun the legal process against the distributors of these counterfeit products and will pursue the manufacturer infringing upon the Litens and Volkswagen Brands. We at Litens take infringement upon our intellectual property and using our brand to deceive customers very seriously.
