To assist technicians in fitting replacement wheel bearings correctly and efficiently, Dayco has added a installation video alongside its recently introduced step-by-step guide to install the front and rear wheel bearings on the popular 2018 VW Golf Mk7.
Dayco is a leading supplier of original equipment components to vehicle manufacturers across Europe and around the world. It is also a major player in the aftermarket, with wheel bearings as part of its growing range of products, many of which are supported by technical advice and installation guidance.
“Despite the fact that wheel bearing replacement is a relatively common task, there is still some confusion among technicians between the different wheel bearing technologies and the fitting procedures that need to be followed to install them correctly,” explains Dayco’s national sales manager, Steve Carolan.
“The production of first, the step-by-step guide and now the installation video, is a great way for us to address the differences and demonstrate the best practice procedures that need to be followed to replace wheel bearings with confedence.
“The Dayco range encompasses Generation 1, 2 and 3 technology, as well as bearings integrated into the brake disc, reflecting the current European vehicle parc and providing workshops with the replacement products they need day-to-day.
“Our commitment to support technicians and assist them in the fitting process continues with the wheel bearing kits themselves, which, as well as coming complete with all the necessary ancillary items, such as nuts, bolts, pins or circlips, also include fitting instructions and technical tips that can be viewed via a QR Code on the product packaging, to ensure they are installed correctly and in the most efficient manner.”
