Sven Nielsen, Technical Director from MEYLE, says the following difficulties may arise with the Mercedes C-Class:
Stabiliser links often worn out
Intense strain and high surface pressure wear and stress on the ball joint. This causes a premature failure of the ball joint and generates noise at the front axle.
MEYLE in-house engineers increased the diameter of the ball head of the ball joint to 22 mm, in addition to using wear-resistant synthetic ball sockets with high-tech grease. The reduction of the surface pressure ensures a significantly longer lifetime.
Our engineers are passionate about improving our MEYLE-HD stabiliser links, constantly seeking new ways of refining all components. To make installation and removal procedures easier for our customers; more and more MEYLE-HD stabiliser links are designed with a wrench attachment at the ball pin. A distinctive advantage when fitting, in particular over those original designs which lack this value-adding feature.
Damaged water pumps
Damaged shock absorbers
Many car drivers lack awareness of the vital role shock absorbers play for overall car safety. The parts wear away gradually, many defects are not visible at first glance, but their impact on the overall car system is dramatic. Properly functioning shock absorbers reduce braking distances, ensure excellent roadholding when cornering and trouble-free operation of state-of-the-art driver assistance systems such as ABS, ESP or TCS.
With high-quality shock absorbers from MEYLE for the Mercedes C-Class (W 204) independent workshops are well equipped for the repair of these safety-critical components. Even when exposed to highest stress, MEYLE shock absorbers ensure an enhanced driving experience: when braking, cornering or riding along bumpy roads. They excel because of the excellent piston rod sealing and their vehicle-specific damping characteristics. Shock absorbers from MEYLE cover a wide range of vehicle applications and carry a distinctive marking signalling.
