One For All: Versatile Control Arm In MEYLE-HD Quality, Now Catering For Even More BMW Models

Engineered to replace three different OE control arm versions used on BMW X5 and X6 Series models built from 2007 onwards, the new MEYLE-HD control arm makes the notoriously complex procedure a routine job, the company says.

One for all – true to this motto MEYLE AG presents a new application for 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 from YOM 2007 onwards. The continuously variable guiding suspension ball joint with clear position marking allows for easy camber correction. This way, no wheel alignment measurement is required prior to installing the MEYLE-HD control arm. The benefits for repair professionals: significant time and cost savings plus a four-year product guarantee which comes with all MEYLE-HD parts.

Engineered to replace three different OE control arm versions used on BMW X5 and X6 Series models built from 2007 onwards, the new MEYLE-HD control arm makes the notoriously complex procedure a routine job, the company says. Thanks to its continuously variable guiding suspension ball joint and clear position marking, the MEYLE-HD control arm can be used for three different wheel camber settings making it suitable for all three OE control arm versions.

Another benefit: The ball joint and the reinforced bushings – both supplied in genuine MEYLE-HD quality – are also available separately. Additionally, the ball joint features a highly resistant anti-corrosion coating and the socket is made from extremely abrasion-resistant plastic material. Thanks to these technical refinements, the MEYLE HD control arm lasts significantly longer and helps independent workshops foster strong customer relations.

MEYLE workshop advice: With the MEYLE-HD control arm, wheel alignment measurement is not required prior to assembly. On the company’s “MEYLE TV” channel repair professionals can find a video tutorial guiding them through the installation procedure, from mounting the control arm in zero position to setting it to positive or negative following axle alignment. This MEYLE solution offers tremendous time saving potential during both installation and ordering, as one universally engineered part fits several different vehicle applications.

The new MEYLE-HD control arm to fit BMW X5 and X6 Series models from YOM 2007 onwards can be ordered under the MEYLE part numbers 316 050 0034/HD (LH) and 316 050 0033/HD (RH).

The separately replaceable MEYLE-HD ball joint can be ordered under the MEYLE reference 316 010 0019/HD; the reinforced and separately replaceable bushings can be ordered under the MEYLE reference 314 610 0017/HD.
