The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and Volkswagen Crafter are two of the largest panel vans in Ireland, with the longest models reaching 7.37m and 7.39m respectively.
Due to such long wheelbases the propshaft on rear-wheel drive models, which transmits the drive power from the engine to the rear axle, must be supported by propshaft centre bearings.
These critical components guide and stabilise the Propshaft and prevent the transmission of vibrations to the body of the van.
Propshaft centre bearings from febi are manufactured in OE-matching quality and are intensively tested. The company’s quality management carries out tests for various requirements and loads, e.g. accuracy of fit, dimensional accuracy, material quality, and tensile strength.
febi’s propshaft centre bearings can be accessed through the febi ‘partsfinder’.
