Meyle to demonstrate its manufacturing expertise at Equip Auto

At the Equip Auto exhibition, to be held in Paris, October 17-21, Meyle AG will be demonstrating its manufacturing expertise presenting a wide range of premium-grade products manufactured at the company’s own production sites.

At the company’s exhibition space, G 049, located in Hall 1, exciting product highlights from the Meyle-Original, Meyle‑PD and Meyle‑HD brands will be on display for automotive repair and sales professionals to discover. The Meyle stand will feature the following exhibits:

Meyle‑HD control arm for BMW models

True to the motto ‘one for all’, Meyle will be presenting yet another application of its innovative Meyle‑HD control arm. Designed to replace three different OE control arm versions, the specially developed Meyle‑HD part caters for all BMW X5 and X6 Series models built from 2007 onwards.

Meyle-Original water pump kits
Meyle water pump kits are available for Volkswagen, Audi, Renault, Peugeot and Citroën models. They include all the parts required for replacing the timing belt, including the corresponding water pump in genuine Meyle-Original or Meyle‑HD quality. All water pumps come with a 100,000-mile (160,934-kilometre) performance guarantee – alongside the respective product guarantee period.

Meyle-Original engine mounts
Meyle offers a comprehensive range of full-rubber and hydraulic engine mounts along with electrically and pneumatically switchable designs catering for over 172 million vehicles registered throughout Europe. To ensure maximum part life, all materials are chosen to suit each vehicle model’s bespoke characteristics, undergoing stringent in-process quality tests all the way from design to final product.

Meyle-Original shock absorbers
Catering for some 214 million vehicles registered across Europe, the range of Meyle-Original shock absorbers features 650 different designs offering advanced wear resistance: an electro-chemical coating process ensures reliable protection of the piston rod against abrasives. Salt spray tests have shown that the Meyle piston rod is by far the least vulnerable to corrosion among all seven competing products tested.

Meyle-Original wheel bearings
Low-wear design, specially cured flange, water-repellent high-performance grease and a seal that is individually geared to the respective application – these are the hallmarks of Meyle-Original wheel bearings. Each part making up the company’s wide range of Meyle-Original wheel bearings undergoes extensive quality testing to a pre-defined set of quality criteria.

Meyle-Original oil change kits
Meyle offers a comprehensive range of 52 repair-friendly kits including all components required for full-service automatic transmission oil change to professional standards on more than 5,100 vehicle applications equipped with all popular gearbox types.

Meyle‑PD brake discs
Since November 2016, replacement brake discs on newly registered vehicles have to demonstrate compliance with the ECE R90 quality standard. Exceeding legal requirements, 90 per cent of the current range of Meyle brake discs comply with the standard even today. This also encompasses brake discs fitted on older vehicle models – a requirement not included in the scope of the directive. Meyle‑PD brake discs come as ready-to-mount assemblies, with most of them including the locating screw. They do not require degreasing. The cutting-edge finish provides Meyle‑PD brake discs with long-term anti-corrosion protection while adding a brilliant appearance.

Meyle‑PD brake pads
All Meyle‑PD brake pads are tested and certified to the ECE R90 standard and offer a stable friction coefficient. As an added extra, they feature multi-layer damping shims and offer superior braking comfort.
