FAG – Wheel bearings

FAG – Wheel bearings

The FAG wheel bearings’ range has grown dramatically over the past year with parts for more than 3.16 million additional vehicles being introduced in 2012.

A significant recent initiative was the introduction of the Gen 2 RIU repair solution which reduces the time it takes to remove and reinstall the wheel bearing unit by up to 60%. 

Conceived especially for the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, Vito and Viano models, and for the VW Crafter, it offers garage owners a real benefit because if an LCV needs new wheel bearings, only the wheel bearing unit itself needs to be replaced, and not the complete knuckle.

The core element of the new repair solution for LCVs is a Generation 2.1 wheel bearing unit with double-row angular contact ball bearings – all components in the same OEM quality FAG is renowned for.

This compact wheel bearing unit also possesses defined and pre-set bearing play, plus life-long lubrication and sealing. Integrated as well are the wheel hub, ABS encoder and an innovative snap ring on the wheel hub side.
