Inside Line: Meyle

by

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

Damaged shock absorbers

Problem:

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 road holding when cornering and trouble-free operation of state-of-the-art driver assistance systems such as ABS, ESP or TCS.

MEYLE solution:

With high-quality shock absorbers from MEYLE for the Mercedes Sprinter, independent workshops are well equipped for the repair of these safety-critical components.

Damaged water pumps

Problems:

Water-pump-1

Water-pump-2

Water-pump-3

Worn out ball joints

Problem:

Ball joints fail prematurely due to heavy load and a high dynamic strain, especially a high surface pressure that wears on the tie rod end.

MEYLE solution:

The recommendation of Meyle is while changing the ball joint also to check and replace the rubber bushings in the control arms. If the ball joint failed the rubber bushings may also be worn out.
