RE: The tariff classification of an automotive clutch tube from Japan

Dear Ms. Salo:

In your letter dated October 17, 1995 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The item in question is a gray, zinc and fluorocarbon resin-coated steel tube which is approximately 15" in "bent-to-shape" length; fitted on both ends of the tube are gold-colored metal nuts which are 22/40"L. You state that the clutch tube is part of the transmission system and its purpose is to carry hydraulic fluid from the slave cylinder to the clutch pressure plate. You further state that the clutch tube will solely be used in "motor vehicles of the kind classified under [HTS] heading 8703".

The applicable subheading for the clutch tube will be 8708.93.7500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Parts and accessories of the motor vehicles of headings 8701 to 8705: Other parts and accessories: Clutches and parts thereof: For other vehicles: Other. The rate of duty will be 3% ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Robert DeSoucey at 212-466-5667.
