MEYLE doubles MEYLE-HD water pump range: New additions cater for numerous VW and Porsche applications

18 MEYLE-HD water pumps with SiC/SiC mechanical seal and water pump bearing in OE quality

Hamburg, 30 November 2016. MEYLE has doubled its existing range of MEYLE HD water pumps for VW and Porsche models. Now totalling 18 items, the MEYLE-HD water pump range allows independent workshops to service an even wider array of vehicle applications and take full advantage of the benefits of SiC/SiC mechanical seals fitted on all MEYLE-HD water pumps.

A defective water pump can quickly cause serious engine damage and drive angry customers to the auto repair shop – a problem  which is easy to head off, if one relies on MEYLE-HD water pumps: They feature an extremely hard-wearing mechanical seal with SiC/SiC sliding face material pairing. The seal, which is used on MEYLE water pumps, offers excellent resistance to abrasive substances making it also the technology of choice for leading vehicle manufacturers. An extremely heat-resistant housing seal and the water pump bearing in original-equipment quality add extra durability to the MEYLE-HD water pump design.

MEYLE workshop advice No. 1: Only use the sealing material included in the MEYLE kit or specified by the manufacturer when installing the new water pump. Apply silicon sealant sparingly to prevent mechanical seal damage and/or coolant contamination.

MEYLE workshop advice No. 2: When replacing the water pump, the entire cooling system needs to be flushed thoroughly prior to refilling the system with new coolant. Adhere to the manufacturer's specifications at all times. This “MEYLE Mechanics” how-to video provides further information on how to flush the cooling system:
