Sven Nielsen, Technical Director from MEYLE, says the following difficulties may arise with the VW Golf:
Damaged shock absorbers
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 roadholding when cornering and trouble-free operation of state-of-the-art driver assistance systems such as ABS, ESP or TCS.
With high-quality shock absorbers from MEYLE for the VW Golf up to 2012 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. Shock absorbers from MEYLE cover a wide range of vehicle applications and carry a distinctive marking signalling: genuine MEYLE quality.
MEYLE also offers rubber buffer (bump stops) and dust cap kits optimally geared to each shock absorber, complemented by a range of strut mounts. This allows workshops to replace wear and tear parts of the suspension and damping systems, relying exclusively on high-grade MEYLE products.
Worn or inferior-quality C.V. joints
Unscheduled trips to the workshop are the nightmare of every driver. Worn or inferior-quality C.V. joints can reduce driver comfort by transmitting structure-borne noise and vibrations. This wear and tear reduces the useful life of the joints and can even lead to premature breakdown.
MEYLE C.V. joints are manufactured to the highest quality standards – all components are precision-manufactured and perfectly geared to one another. MEYLE UK offers independent workshops C.V. joints for all popular vehicle applications as kits, with accessory material to save time and effort in identifying and ordering all parts separately. The kits contain the requisite individual components including axle boot, grease and mounting hardware.
