Inside Line: Meyle

by

Sven Nielsen, Technical Director from MEYLE, says the following difficulties may arise with the Mercedes E-Class:

Transmission oil

Problem:

Transmission oil is highly stressed. It is aging and wearing by abrasion, temperature,
and chemical processes. This leads to high risk of reduced driving comfort and modified
Gear changing conditions, up to costly transmission defects! Despite successful oil changes comfort and switching problems still occur because during an oil change for technical reasons only max. 2/3 of the oil volume is changed. Therefore many deposits remain in the residual oil and in the transmission.

MEYLE solution:

– Regular oil change every 6-8 years
– With a mileage exceeding 60,000 kilometres MEYLE recommends that the transmission fluid and filters be changed along with the respective components to maximise gearbox performance and service life.
– Any vehicle manufacturer’s individual specifications must be given priority.
– To ensure compliance with professional standards use special tools when refilling transmission fluid and checking the fluid level.
– only by a comprehensive transmission fluid flushing almost a complete transmission cleaning is achieved. This requires type-specific special tools (available at tool specialists) e.g.:
– special lift to tilt the car (necessary to run out remaining oil)

Worn out brake discs

Problem:

Worn out brake discs affect the braking behaviour of the vehicle negatively. Rust and corrosion may play a major role in this case.

MEYLE solution:

Brake discs are subject to demanding external factors including heat, salt and moisture, making utmost resistance of the coating an essential performance criterion.
