Introduced at Automechanika Frankfurt in September, the MEYLE-ORIGINAL wheel-bearing repair kit is designed to simplify shop operations.

Featuring a pre-assembled wheel bearing and wheel hub, the kit eliminates the need to remove and insert the wheel hub before installation, which can be a time-consuming process. The kit covers a global fleet of more than 3 million vehicles, including Audi, Ford, Mercedes-Benz and VW models.

“The new pre-assembled MEYLE-ORIGINAL wheel-bearing repair kit provides workshop employees with all the necessary parts as a complete set, with the wheel hub and wheel bearing pre-pressed for installation,” Hamburg, Germany-based MEYLE explained in a news release. “The two components are already assembled to enable the fastest installation possible, eliminating the need for the press.”

When removing the wheel hub, parts of the wheel bearing can get stuck on the hub, or the hub can be damaged. The sensitive ABS-sensor ring (if present) also can be damaged when reinserted.

Using MEYLE’s pre-pressed repair kit also ensures that all tolerances such as concentricity and run-out fit perfectly, as the components are optimally matched, according to the company.

The kit reduces repair times up to 25 percent, according to MEYLE, as there’s no need to press and install individual components.
