- Additional quality-enhanced suspension parts for Nissan, Opel and Renault models

- Irrespective of the exceptional levels of stress to which bus and van components are exposed, MEYLE parts come with a four-year warranty
As of now independent workshops can offer quality-enhanced tie rod end assemblies to owners of Nissan, Opel or Renault minibuses or vans. With the latest additions to its MEYLE-HD range Wulf Gaertner Autoparts enables workshops to offer professional repairs to a growing number of car owners. As with all parts developed in-house by Hamburg manufacturer Wulf Gaertner Autoparts, the new suspension parts feature an enlarged ball diameter and a specially formulated high-performance grease to provide for increased durability. Repair shops benefit from a full four-year guarantee on the new tie rod end assemblies to fit Nissan, Opel and Renault models.
Steering and suspension parts are subject to extraordinary load levels, especially on minibuses and vans. Heavy loading, poor road conditions and climatic effects resulting from ozone, moisture and salt take an additional toll on part life. Suspension parts are safety-critical components. This is why part stability and durability are a prime concern of Wulf Gaertner Autoparts AG’s team of expert engineers. Thus, for example, MEYLE-HD tie rod ends feature a larger ball head than conventional designs. This allows the forces acting on the ball to be distributed more efficiently, thereby reducing the surface pressure applied on the ball joint’s plastic socket.
Jointly with Fuchs Lubritech GmbH, a leading manufacturer of high-performance lubricants, the MEYLE grease has been developed to deliver excellent compatibility with the steel, plastic and rubber materials making up the joint. Under all operating conditions, the grease provides for a constant lubricant film between the ball pin and plastic socket thereby ensuring smooth movement in the ball joint. All of these refinements have been integrated in the new MEYLE-HD tie rod ends designed to fit the Nissan Primastar, Opel Vivaro, Renault Espace IV / Laguna II / Trafic III and Vel Satis and available under the MEYLE part numbers 16-16 020 0011/HD and 16-16 020 0012/HD.
“Safety and durability are paramount to vehicle owners whenever their car requires repair. To enable independent workshops to meet the quality requirements of their customers, we continue to evolve the MEYLE HD portfolio to cater for an ever growing range of vehicle applications“, says Sven Nielson, Technical Director at Wulf Gaertner Autoparts. „Because MEYLE-HD parts help prevent repeated repairs, they meet another critical repair requirement: cost-effectiveness”, says Nielsen.
As with all products of the MEYLE-HD range, Wulf Gaertner Autoparts also gives a full four-year warranty on these HD parts.
