One Brand, One Goal -

Making OE Quality Timing Chain Kits available in the Automotive Aftermarket

Like all well-known OE manufacturers, febi uses only selected materials for the highest production quality, for example for our chain tensioner housings from in-house manufacturing that are mad of steel, die-cast aluminium or cast iron.

OE Matching Quality:

  • 100% check of all timing chains and system parts
  • Timing chains from OE manufacturer
  • Timing chains with TRITAN®-coating


Production Expertise:

  • Own production of important system parts, such as chain tensioners
  • Technical training for workshops


Quality Assurance:

  • Pinch, roll, tension and pressure checks through slug tests to test chain strength
  • febi Timing Chain Kits come with a general manufacturer guarantee of 3 years.

TRITAN®-Coating is the Solution!

Advantages of the TRITAN®-coating

  • Wear reduction of at least 50% compared to conventional coating methods
  • Approximately 20% less friction helps to reduce emissions

Chain Tensioners

Made in Germany

The task of the chain tensioner is to tension the timing chain in all operating conditions and to intercept unwanted vibrations even if wear elongation of the chain has occurred due to engine operation.

Quality is of enormous importance with this important component. This is why chain stretchers are precisely manufactured by bilstein group Engineering. Part of our chain stretchers are manufactured in our in-house production near the company headquaters in Germany on modern, CNC machines.

This ensures quality "Made in Germay".

Check of Surrounding Components

Check of surrounding components

All engine timing components are exactly calculated. Years of development and experience are put into every system to ensure that the engine timing and its components are exactly matched to each other in all speed and load ranges. Driving comfort, consumption and emission values must not be ignored. Wear and tear on the components of the engine timing system can lead to noise, in the worst case even to engine damage.

Higher compression in the combustion chamber, more precise injection times and higher torques have increased engine timing loads. Therefore, special attention must be paid to the engine timing during repair and maintenance work in the workshop. The specifications and procedures of the vehicle manufacturers must be observed with all repairs.

In addition to checking the timing belt or chain, the complexity of modern engines requires the maintenance of all adjacent components which directly interfere with the control process. With chain control, for example, these are sliding rails, chain stretchers, oil and sprockets. These components must not be disregarded in the preparation of repair calculations.

febi offers the right wear parts, which are needed for competently and safely executed repairs on modern engine management systems.


Timing belts combine the characteristics of a timing chain and an auxiliary belt (flat belt). On the inside of the belt, teeth are formed from abrasion-resistant rubber or plastic, which engage in a special gearwheel. This construction has the following advantages compared to V-ribbed or flat belts:

  • The teeth made of elastomer are protected against wear.

  • Higher forces can be transferred due to the positive locking of the teeth.

Ferdinand Bilstein offers a wide range of timing belts, including timing belt sets and suitable accessories.

To avoid damage to the timing belt, febi bilstein recommends the following:

For storage:

  • Light-protected
  • Observe temperature between 5 – 50° C (avoid heat sources)
  • Maximum humidity 80 %
  • No contact with chemicals
  • Maximum storage time 5 years (rule of thumb)


For installation:

  • Do not squeeze or bend
  • Do not use force
  • Do not pry up
  • Do not clean with detergents or solvents (e.g. brake cleaner)

Meanwhile, there are even timing belts, which no longer perform their work dry outside the engine housing, but that run in the oil in the engine housing. This new technology comes into effect for the oil pump drive, for example, in the Ford 1.0l Eco Boost Engine, Peugeot 1.2 Vti and VW EA288 1.6/2.0 TDI vehicles.


  • Friction resistance reduced by up to 30 %, therefore reduced CO2 emissions
  • Optimised noise (NVH)
  • Exact compliance with control times over long periods of time due to reduced elongation (only about 0.1 percent at 240,000 kilometres)
  • Reduced installation space (downsizing)
  • Can be used under extreme temperatures (up to approx. 170 ° C)
  • Lower production costs (compared to chain drives)

When replacing the timing chain or belt, the surrounding components should also be tested for wear.

In order for all parts to work together perfectly, it is extremely important that they are made accurately and from high-quality materials.

febi offers complete timing chains and belts for certain types of vehicles, which contain all the required parts for a professional exchange.
