Inside Line: Meyle

by

Sven Nielsen, Technical Director from MEYLE, says the following difficulties may arise with the Vauxhall Astra and Zafira:

Worn out tie rod ends

Problem:

Intense strain and high surface pressure wear on the tie rod end. Noise and play in the steering.

MEYLE solution:

Increased diameter of the ball joint of the tie rod end to 25 mm which increases the load bearing capacity ensures a significant longer lifetime.

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 Vauxhall Astra and Zafira independent workshops are well equipped for the repair of these safety-critical components. Even when exposed to highest stress, MEYLE shock absorbers ensure an enhanced driving experience: when braking, cornering or riding along bumpy roads. They excel because of the excellent piston rod sealing and their vehicle-specific damping characteristics.

Frequently damaged crank position sensors

Problem:

Crank sensors frequently cause erratic running and misfires. Broken crank sensors can lead to an error message in the engine control unit – with the result that the engine of the vehicle shuts down.

MEYLE Solution:

MEYLE offers high-quality crank sensors designed to provide great stability and durability.
