- Full coverage of small and medium-size vehicles
- New part dimensioning improves roadholding and durability
- Four-year warranty fosters long-term customer relations
Wulf Gaertner Autoparts AG adds another 10 items to its MEYLE-HD range of VW control arms now covering the complete small and mid-size model range of the VW Group’s brands (Audi, Seat, Skoda and VW). The growing product range enables workshops to expand their customer base by offering HD quality repairs for an ever-increasing range of applications. With the new design and optimised rubber compound MEYLE-HD control arms are engineered to outlive OE parts by far. The Hamburg-based manufacturer gives a four-year warranty on its Volkswagen control arms.
Rubber mounts must be highly resilient to effectively neutralise vibration during operation. At the same time they must provide the stiffness required to withstand load peaks such as occur when accelerating, braking or cornering and stabilise the control arm and the vehicle. The high tensile loads on the rubber involve the risk of fissures generated on the rubber surface and spreading towards the interior. To prevent the bushing from failing prematurely as a result of fracturing rubber Wulf Gaertner Autoparts’s engineers have optimised the part: The design of the latest-generation MEYLE-HD bushing has been significantly reinforced and geared to the high loads occurring during operation. The newly formulated rubber compound ensures long service life and good roadholding under any operating condition.
As of now, Wulf Gaertner Autoparts AG offers control arm assemblies with the quality-enhanced HD bushing for the VW Group’s entire fleet of small and medium-size models and small SUV’s (MEYLE nos.: 1160500002/HD, 1160500003/HD, 1160500032/HD, 1160500033/HD and 1160500072/HD).
The brackets and bushings are also available separately (MEYLE nos.: 100 199 0085/HD, 100 199 0086/HD and 100 610 0014/HD).
In addition, the Hamburg manufacturer offers full-service repair kits including also the required mounting hardware (MEYLE nos.: 100 610 0085/HD, 100 610 0086/HD and 100 610 0037/HD).
