HAMBURG – With a new MEYLE KIT, the Hamburg manufacturer offers another cost-saving repair solution enabling replacement of defective ABS sensor and the sensor ring for specific vehicles – a solution that is currently only available through MEYLE.
Up until recently, if an ABS sensor had been damaged by a defective sensor ring, it would have been necessary to replace the entire wheel hub. The MEYLE KIT, comprising ABS sensor, sensor ring and installation materials, can help: most of the time and the wheel hub is still fully functional.
This solution is currently available for the Audi A3, VW Golf, VW Jetta, SEAT Altea and SEAT Leon, whose ABS sensor ring on OE wheel hubs can be replaced separately using the MEYLE KIT. Two new references can cover a car park of nearly four million vehicles in Europe.
With the two new references, MEYLE is expanding its electronics portfolio to include additional spare parts that drivers around the world can rely on. When it comes to expanding the range, MEYLE focuses first and foremost on quality and an accurate fit.
“We as a manufacturer want to offer our customers a portfolio that also lives up to MEYLE’s high quality standards for electronics across the board,” said Dominik Overmann, Head of the Electronics & Sensors MEYLE Product Team. “With our extensive aftermarket expertise, we’re well prepared for trends and developments such as electric mobility and autonomous driving and are expanding our portfolio in many directions.”
All of MEYLE’s electronic parts fulfil OE specifications and are incorporated into the portfolio after extensive functional testing, with additional focus on the quality of data. Thanks to detailed research on application and vehicle data, MEYLE guarantees an accurate fit – a key criterion that enables fast and correct parts identification for workshops and minimizes return costs.
“Particularly in electronics, the right data forms the basis for selecting the appropriate parts for models and thus ensuring seamless communication between components,” explained Overmann.
MEYLE’s ABS detector card
MEYLE’s ABS detector card is a practical helper for everyday workshop operations, promoting fast identification of ABS sensor ring defects. The card can be used for a whole host of applications, including testing magnetic sensor rings, identifying the installation side of a wheel bearing with integrated sensor ring and revealing sensor ring damage. This, in turn, simplifies the time-consuming process of searching for defects and failures and allows more time for subsequent steps.
That’s because sensor rings have been integrated into more and more car parts such as crankshafts and wheel bearings for years. These compact sensor rings for measuring speed and position are used in many vehicles. These days, most wheel bearings are equipped with a magnetic sensor ring.
