How do I know if this part needs replacing
Located between the transmission and driveshaft, the giubo (also guibo) joint is a flexible rubber drive coupling that joins driveline components to reduce vibration, while allowing a limited range of flexibility. Joint rubber deteriorates over time from torque stress and heat hardening. A failed joint is a common cause of driveline noise and vibration. This joint should be inspected during normal maintenance for signs of heat cracking and tears in the rubber. Failed joints should be replaced before they cause additional damage and expense or disable the vehicle.
Much has happened since the company was founded in 1958: we’ve developed from an exporter to a manufacturer with its own production facilities and its own MEYLE brand. MEYLE parts can be found at workshops around the world – in 120 countries on all continents. We’ve grown continuously for 60 years: a single-man operation has become a medium-sized company with a staff of nearly 500 at the Hamburg headquarters alone. The automotive industry and the topic of electric vehicles accompanied the company founder from his childhood: his grandfather Karl Louis Gaertner was already working with electric drives for carriages and building vehicles more than a hundred years ago. As a passionate racing driver in South America, Wulf Gaertner himself faced the challenge of finding high-quality automotive spare parts for his racing car – he ultimately sourced them from Germany and thus laid the foundation for export trade. Export was followed by the acquisition of the MEYLE brand in 1995 and, a few years later, the opening of the company’s own production facilities, which still manufacture steering and suspension and rubber-to-metal parts to this day. Following the launch of the MEYLE-HD product range in the early 2000s, the founding of MEYLE AG and the new brand identity with the slogan DRIVER’S BEST FRIEND in 2016 represented important ‘MEYLEstones’ in the company’s history.
