Meyle AG has introduced a pre-assembled Meyle-Original wheel bearing repair kit that provides all the necessary parts as a complete set, with the wheel hub and wheel bearing pre-pressed for installation.
Meyle says the wheel bearing repair kit covers a global fleet of more than three million vehicles, including Audi, Ford, Mercedes-Benz and VW models.
The wheel hub and wheel bearing are already assembled to enable the fastest installation possible, according to the company.
When removing the wheel hub, parts of the wheel bearing can get stuck on the hub or the hub may be damaged. The sensitive ABS sensor ring (if present) can also be damaged when reinserted. Meyle says pre-pressing the wheel hub and wheel bearing eliminates the need to remove and insert the wheel hub before installation.
In addition, Meyle says using its pre-pressed repair kit also ensures that all tolerances such as concentricity and run-out fit perfectly, as the components are optimally matched. Ordering and storing the Meyle kit is also easy: there’s no need to find the right components and installation takes just one step.
Repair times at the workshop are reduced significantly: installation requires up to 25% less time, as there’s no need to press and install individual components.
The Meyle-Original wheel bearing repair kit was presented at Automechanika 2018 and is now available under the Meyle parts numbers 014 753 0003, 100 653 0033, 100 653 0034 and 100 653 003. An expansion of the portfolio is planned.
