Sven Nielsen, Technical Director from MEYLE, says the following difficulties may arise with the Vauxhall Insignia:
Damaged glow plugs
Cold starting problems due to damaged glow plugs.
MEYLE-Solution (614 860 0011)
MEYLE offers high-quality glow plugs (614 860 0011) designed to provide great durability even at sub-zero temperatures. Using a latest-generation Kanthal wire ensures rapid temperature generation in the combustion chamber and offers exceptionally long service life. In addition, MEYLE glow plugs start glowing at the tip, then voltage is reduced. This allows the engine to start faster while going easy on the battery and the environment.
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-HD Solution (616 060 0003/HD)
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 stabilizer links, constantly seeking new ways of refining all components. To make installation and removal procedures easier for our customers; more and more MEYLE-HD stabilizer 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.
Owing to the larger ball head the ball surface on MEYLE-HD stabilizer links has been increased by 50 percent. This way we have managed to significantly improve the part‘s load carrying capacity along with its service life. The blue clip-on plastic socket adds additional strength to the MEYLE-HD part.
