Product replacement: New MEYLE ORIGINAL fullrubber, plastic covered bushing for the rear axle
To fit Audi A3, TT | Seat Cordoba, Ibiza, Leon, Toledo | Skoda Fabia, Octavia | VW Bora, Golf, Beetle, Polo
With immediate effect, the MEYLE axle support bushing for VW models will only be available as a full-rubber, plastic covered version (MEYLE no. 114 710 0001, short no. MAB0168). The hydro bushing version has been discontinued and the part number deleted from the range. Please upgrade your system accordingly.
With the product replacement, MEYLE AG follows the Volkswagen Group‘s decision to discontinue the hydro bushing and only use the full-rubber version. We strongly recommend that our customers follow the manufacturer‘s specifications and only use the full-rubber version. Thanks to the plastic covering, the MEYLE ORIGINAL full-rubber axle support bushing has a larger outer diameter than the hydro bushing with steel casing. This does not affect ease of installation. Due to the plastic cover, the full-rubber bushing is pretensioned when press-fitted and thereby ensuring long service life.
Of course, there is also a full-service repair kit available featuring the new full-rubber bushing (MEYLE no. 114 710 0001/S, short no. MFK0030).
