ZF Aftermarket Providing “Installation Education” By Giving Schools TRW Branded Brake Pads During National Car Care Month

April and October are National Car Care Months, with April focusing on vehicle health and maintenance. Exiting winter and heading into spring months reminds people to make sure their cars are up to par on their regular maintenance checks. As the winter snow melts away and the April showers pour in, it’s important for drivers to know they’re safe to stop in time with brake pads that do the job.

ZF Aftermarket and Jeff Buckley want to remind everyone of the importance of having quality brake pads, especially during times of weather changes. ZF Aftermarket released their new ‘perfectly tailored’ frictions lines, TRW Ultra and TRW Pro, in November 2019. The lines are designed to meet the OE formula specifications.

Installation Education Entry

From March 1st until March 31st, classrooms across the country may enter the ‘Installation Education’ contest by submitting a relevant automotive classroom picture and having students answer what difference having quality brake pads makes in a vehicle, and what they would be able to do with the brakes if their school won. All entries must be submitted through an online submission form at . Schools are welcome to be as creative as they would like with their entry photos. Limit one entry per high school, college or technical center.

From April 1st to April 14th, all the nominations will be posted to the website where voting will be open. Voters can choose one school they believe deserve to win TRW branded brake pads.

Winners will be identified by the highest number of votes:

• First place will receive 8 sets of TRW branded brake pads

• Second place will receive 5 sets of TRW branded brake pads

• Third place will receive 2 sets of TRW branded brake pads

The winners will be announced on April 15th via a Facebook Live hosted by Buckley and ZF Aftermarket. Good luck to all entrants!
