Strong performance in a new look: MEYLE-HD control arm kit for BMW and Mini
With the MEYLE-HD control arm for BMW and Mini, the Hamburg-based spare parts manufacturer MEYLE is presenting a technically improved aluminium control arm with a replaceable support joint and fastening material, which is currently only available from MEYLE in the aftermarket, compared to the OE part. The aluminium construction ensures that the control arms are very well protected against corrosion and are particularly durable. The weight advantage of almost 20% compared to the OE counterpart offers advantages along the entire logistics chain. The kit consists of both control arms (left and right), matching MEYLE-HD bushings with holders and the necessary fastening material. The MEYLE-HD control arm kit was first presented at Automechanika 2018 and is now available under the parts numbers 3160500135/HD and 3160500136/HD.
MEYLE Performance: MEYLE with extensive sponsoring program for 2019
In 2019, the Hamburg-based manufacturer MEYLE will again be actively involved in motor sports and will continue its sponsoring activities in truck racing and in the DRIFT UNITED racing series. In addition, MEYLE will be the official sponsor of the team T3 Motorsport in the ADAC GT Masters, 24H Series and NES 500 series.
Tested and developed in the truck: New brake pads in MEYLE-PD quality
MEYLE has been a technical cooperation partner for European Truck Racing series for five years. The cooperation focuses on the transfer of know-how: The findings from the racing events in the European commercial vehicle professional series are incorporated into our own parts development. With the new MEYLE-PD brake pads, parts from the cooperation with a racing team have now been developed for the first time. The brake pads are offered as a complete kit with all assembly materials – for quick and cost-efficient replacement in the workshop.
MEYLE simplifies part identification for workshops: graphic search with context-sensitive graphics
Search and find parts even faster - the Hamburg-based spare parts manufacturer MEYLE is the first aftermarket supplier to offer context-sensitive graphics of rear-axle multi-links for selected BMW and Mercedes-Benz models. What's special: These graphics, specially designed by MEYLE, show the spare part in the context of complex chassis technology, making it even easier to identify the required parts. An enormous time saving for workshops and wholesalers: In the graphic search, customers are shown exact installation positions and contexts, see all relevant information and details when they click on the article and go directly to the order.
Protection against bacteria and mould – new biofunctional MEYLE ORIGINAL cabin air filter for clean air in the vehicle
MEYLE strengthens their extensive range of particle and activated carbon cabin air filters with a third specification: An additional filter layer enriched with silver ions provides the new MEYLE-ORIGINAL cabin filter with an antibacterial function and thus clean air in the car. Increasing air pollution exposes drivers and occupants to dangerous particles such as soot and harmful gases such as ozone when driving - air pollution caused by allergens, bacteria and fungi, which can form in the filter, further increases the health burden. While the MEYLE-ORIGINAL particle and activated carbon filters already filter out harmful gases, soot and pollen, the new cabin air filter also actively protects against bacteria and, thanks to its fungicidal effect, against the development of mould and fungi.
Focus on noise-reduced performance: MEYLE-PD brake pads with technically advanced friction pad compound
Generally speaking: The more sporty the pad is, the more likely it is to squeak. With the "next generation" MEYLE-PD brake pads, the Hamburg-based manufacturer is now going one step further and reducing the noise emission of its performance-oriented brake pads to a minimum. In total, 350 MEYLE-PD brake pads for passenger cars have been technically enhanced compared to the previous version.
5 steps for a clean cooling system - MEYLE shows how it’s done!
Thorough and regular flushing is one of the decisive steps in the maintenance of cooling systems. Contamination, e.g. due to the incorrect use of sealing compound in the cooling system, reduces the cooling capacity in the long run and can lead to premature failure of the water pump mechanical seal. But even beyond this, proper flushing of the cooling circuit is the basis forlonger engine service life. This should take place at the latest when the water pump is replaced in order to remove particles that can be caused by corrosion or limestone. The Hamburg-based manufacturer MEYLE now supports workshops with a special tool.
Individual solution for extreme demands: MEYLE presents prototype of front axle for drift vehicles at the Essen Motor Show 2018
At the Essen Motor Show 2018, MEYLE will present the prototype of an individually developed front axle, which was developed in cooperation with the professional drift championship DRIFT UNITED: The complete axle geometry is a truly unique specimen which MEYLE engineers have developed especially for the individual drift vehicle and which will be further extended by extensive tests on the drift track. In addition to axle kinematics, MEYLE's chassis and steering experts also designed axle components such as transverse control arms, tie rods, steering gears and connections to the wheel carrier to meet the specifications and heavy demands of drift sports. Among other things, the length and shape of the transverse control arm was adapted to the special requirements of drifting. The drift vehicle with the axle components installed will be on display at the DRIFT UNITED stand (Hall 5, Stand C10) at the Essen Motor Show.
New MEYLE-ORIGINAL wheel bearing repair kit simplifies daily workshop operations
The new all-in-one kit of Hamburg-based manufacturing company MEYLE is another clever repair solution which can save workshops valuable time: the wheel bearing and wheel hub are pre-assembled in the MEYLE-ORIGINAL wheel bearing repair kit, thus eliminating the need to remove and insert the wheel hub before installation, which can be a time-consuming process. This solution covers a global fleet of more than three million vehicles, including Audi, Ford, Mercedes-Benz and VW models.
MEYLE tutorial: new video shows how to flush the cooling system in five simple steps
Based in Hamburg, manufacturing company MEYLE has a new tool to help workshops properly flush the cooling system. The tool, which MEYLE offers in collaboration with quality tool partner HAZET, can flush the cooling system using water and compressed air, so there’s no need for aggressive chemicals or cleaners. The all-purpose tool is suitable for five hose diameters (19, 29, 32, 36.5 and 40 mm) and thus many vehicle applications at the workshop.
