Inside Line: Meyle

by

Sven Nielsen, Technical Director from MEYLE, says the following difficulties may arise with the Trafic/Vivaro/Primastar X83:

Worn out control arms

Problem:

In these models, it´s not the bushings that fail but the ball joints. They fail prematurely due to heavy load and a high dynamic strain. As consequence, ball joints are often worn out fast because they are mostly small dimensioned.

MEYLE solution:

In our MEYLE-HD control arms we have optimised the ball joints by using a wear-resistant plastic seat and a precision ball pin, lubricated with MEYLE high-tech grease. Thus, the MEYLE-HD track control arms have a longer lifetime.

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, a MEYLE high-tech grease and an increased ball head diameter, MEYLE can provide quality ball joints for the Trafic, Vivaro and Primastar X83.

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.
