CARDONE Remanufactured Motors are the result of years of research and process development aimed at producing the highest quality products in the aftermarket. Reverse engineering provides insight into why a product fails and allows us to improve upon any original design flaws – often resulting in products that perform better than O.E. Computerized testing and on-car validation ensures that every unit meets fit, function and performance requirements.
- Critical components are re-soldered to ensure superior electrical connections, eliminate intermittent failures and extend product life.
- Unit is completely disassembled, cleaned and examined for wear and breakage.
- Worn out, missing or non-functioning components are replaced with new or rebuilt components.
- Original design weaknesses are corrected to make a longer lasting part.
- All replacement components are O.E. quality.
- All critical components are tested to guarantee like-new performance.
- Units are computer tested, both as sub-assemblies and as complete units to ensure reliability.
- On GM applications where pulse boards are in place they have 100% reflowed solder joints to improve reliability and ensure secure connections.
Complete the Check It Fits tool and confirm all information in the Fitment Details section above to ensure you select the right part for your application.
CoreWhat is a core? A core is a used automotive part that is returned to the remanufacturer instead of being scrapped. Why return cores? Cores are literally at the “core” of the remanufacturing process, because they are the raw material used to start the remanufacturing process. That’s why remanufacturers buy cores back from customers, and they pay the most for good quality cores. If a core has too much damage in key areas, it may be unusable or require extra resources to process; therefore a reduced core payment may be awarded. This core policy explains potential deductions that may be taken from the core price if certain components are missing or damaged. What is remanufacturing? Remanufacturing is the process of taking used parts, completely disassembling and thoroughly cleaning them, replacing the worn components with original quality components, and restoring them to their original function. Every unit is 100% tested to ensure O.E. performance. Why “reman”? PRODUCTS - Reman captures used, durable goods like auto parts and puts them “back on the road” to new and sometimes better than new performance. Reman provides the opportunity for detection of common failure modes and incorporation of design improvements to prevent repeat failure.
ECONOMY - Reman products cost consumers about 40% less than new. Reman products are one of the few “green” products that actually costs less than their “non-green” counterparts.
ENVIRONMENTAL - Reman saves up to 86% of the energy required to build a new unit. Reman realizes Greenhouse Gas savings of up to 25 lbs. per unit over new. Reman saves up to 85% of the raw material required to produce a new unit by reusing existing products. Reman is even more sustainable than recycling, as product castings are preserved rather than melted down to raw material, saving energy and reducing emissions.
