ATE ABS Pumps Modules

ATE ABS repair

We cover the entire range of ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) pumps and modules manufactured by ATE and have been doing so for many years. Our bespoke Hardware-In-the-Loop test rigs allow us to run all these ABS units under real-world load and driving conditions, both before and after rebuild.


The ATE product philosophy is that: 'Safety systems must be affordable, and that in itself will increase the individual and overall degree of driving safety'. However mass production comes with inherent quality problems and ATE ABS pump and modules certainly do have their share of common issues.


The ATE range is extensive with many versions including MK10, MK20, MK25, MK25E, MK48, MK60, MK61, MK70 and MK100.


These are commonly fitted by the majority of vehicle manufacturers to a vast range of models. Click on the system types below for more information.
