MEYLE has just launched full-service MEYLE tripod joint kits as part of its MEYLE ORIGINAL range. These kits can be used by independent workshops to conduct tripod joint repairs in a cost- and time-effective manner as the kits include in a single box all the required components which are matched to one another.
The range of tripod joint kits include six such tripod joint kits which are full-service kits complete with high-quality mounting parts and all components needed for assembly including even a high-performance grease that was specially developed to meet the requirements of tripod joints. These new tripod joint repair kits can help workshops a considerable amount of time and hassle as they will not have to order each part individually. The kits are suitable for use on high-demand VAG models.
The tripod joint serves to ensure even load distribution between the transmission and the wheels. If you hear a rattling or knocking noise during load change, this is probably caused by the tripod joint. When the tripod rollers wear into the housing due to continual load change, it causes excessive joint play and unpleasant noise. Another cause of tripod joint failure is axle boot leakage as insufficient protection against moisture can lead to corrosion in the joint.
According to the company, using the full-service MEYLE tripod joint kits will help independent workshops to perform cost- and time-effective tripod joint repairs. In addition to the tripod joints, the full-service kits include OE-quality hose clamps as well as boot and snap rings and the specially formulated high-performance grease that can meet the requirements of this type of joint. The grease significantly enhances the joint’s load-bearing properties giving it greater tolerance to friction and wear. The advanced grease formula also serves to minimize energy losses during load transfer.
In the press release announcing the launch of the tripod joint kits MEYLE has advised repair technicians that it is essential to ensure there is sufficient lubrication when installing the tripod joint so that they get the full benefit of the high-tech properties of the grease included in the full-service kits. The full-service kits can be used on Vauxhall, General Motors, Skoda, Audi, Seat, Opel and VW models.
