Complete cardan shaft change to replace defective centre bearing? – Not with MEYLE!
The task of the centre bearing is to position the cardan shaft and absorb vibration. Premium-class SUVs fitted with a high-torque engine are subject to particularly high levels of stress. As the most vulnerable part of the bearing, the rubber component is likely to become brittle and crack under excessive strain. A defective centre bearing must be replaced immediately. However, authorised VAG shops do not offer the bearing separately, making replacement of the entire cardan shaft unavoidable – a procedure involving considerable costs!
The MEYLE-ORIGINAL centre bearing repair kit offers a swift, cost-effective alternative paired with unproblematic replacement. The kit includes the bearing, rubber boot, clamp ring and grease complemented by step-by-step fitting instructions to ensure full-service repair.
Also available is a full-service kit version:
The MEYLE repair kit 100 152 2001 (Short no. MPJ0097) which includes the centre bearing, flex disc, stretch bolts and mounting parts.
