Inside Line: Meyle

by

Sven Nielsen, Technical Director from MEYLE, says the following difficulties may arise with the Peugeot 207:

Stabiliser links often worn out

Problem:

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-HD solution:

MEYLE in-house engineers increased the ball pin diameter 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, MEYLE-HD stabiliser links are designed with a wrench attachment at the ball pin – a distinctive advantage when fitting.

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:

Thanks to the use of extremely long-wearing plastic ball joint sockets (in aviation tried and tested material), a MEYLE high-tech grease and an increased ball head diameter, MEYLE UK can provide quality long-life ball joints for the Peugeot 207 up to 2012.

Worn out brake discs

Problem:

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

MEYLE solution:

The MEYLE solution is a brake disc covered with a specially developed multi-layer zinc coating. The MEYLE PD coating simply provides better anti-corrosion protection.

MEYLE subjected their MEYLE PD brake disc to a ten day comparative test with a conventional brake disc from the aftermarket and an original disc which was also coated. The salt spray test designed to simulate the influences of corrosion was carried out in the quality laboratory at MEYLE in Hamburg.
Compared to the conventional brake disc which showed intense rusting over the entire surface area after 240 hours, the MEYLE PD brake disc displayed only a small amount of white rusting and isolated patches of rust on the surface and on the bores of the inner surface. The coated original brake disc also showed severe rusting close to the bores, increased rusting at the edges and also white rusting.
