Metelli, with over 30 years’ experience in the production of transmission components (900 constant velocity joints and 1.100 drive shafts), has added the wheel bearing kit to its range. This additional range complements the drivetrain line and completes the selection of products available to customers.
• Around 600 codes covering over 90% of European applications.
• The range includes all the accessories required for installation (nuts, screws, seeger and split pins).
• All the bearings are protected and internally lubricated with a specific high-performance grease.
• Also available with toothed phonic wheels and ABS (Magnetic Encoder) pulse generator rings for maximum braking safety. For the latter there is a specific assembly instruction sheet in the package, to help the mechanic with the installation.
The wheel bearing is a very important safety element as it has to withstand considerable axial and radial stress due to bends, kerbs, acceleration, braking, rough roads and the weight of the vehicle. The main function of the wheel bearing is to reduce the mechanical friction of the constant-velocity joint, ensuring that the axle shafts transmit the rotational movement to the wheels correctly, even during steering. Metelli, always attentive to the environment, supplies its wheel bearing kits with fully recyclable packaging.
