Wulf Gaertner Autoparts AG has added Meyle brand crankshaft sealing flanges to its lineup.
There are 16 different sealing flange modules designed to OE specifications to fit more than 2,000 vehicle applications, including the VW Crafter and Audi models A1 to A6, the company reports.
The ready-to-fit modules come pre-assembled and feature a dynamic and a static seal as well as a trigger wheel.
The company recommends that the sealing flange module be inspected and, if necessary, replaced during the regular clutch inspection.
In order to prevent oil leaks, engine start issues or damage to the crankshaft, the following rules should be observed when performing repair work:
* Ensure the crankshaft is not damaged and the mounting face is clean.
* Remove any mounting sleeves or transport locks only immediately prior to the assembly of the part.
* Do not remove or rotate the trigger wheel, and do not use any mounting grease.
