How do I know if this part needs replacingThis flex disc, sometimes called a giubo, is a flexible coupling used to transmit power from the gearbox to the propeller shaft. Being made of a flexible rubber, the flex disc is designed to allow for some angular movement while reducing driveling vibrations Since this part is made of rubber and is constantly exposed to the elements, it will eventually need replaced in order to continue functioning properly. It is highly recommended that you inspect the flex discs regularly, such as during oil changes. If the flex discs in your car are showing any signs of wear such as cracking or rust around the bolt holes, replace them immediately. A failed flex disc will not only leave you waiting on a tow truck, but also has the potential to damage your car depending on how fast you are going when the flex joint fails as it allows the propeller shaft to strike anything in its reach with tremendous force.
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.
