Federal Mogul's constant dollar sales in Europe fell by 7% as vehicle production and aftermarket demand decreased due to the overall market downturn. 

Sales in North America were 2% higher, partially offsetting European market weakness. Federal-Mogul reported a net loss of $11 million in Q3 2012, versus $34 million in Q3 2011. The lower income was primarily due to the impact on margins of lower European volumes, combined with adverse regional and product mix.
