How to guarantee the perfect sealing?

Sealing of the ball joint is essential for a long life of the part. If the sealing fails, leaks will allow dirt and moist to freely infiltrate the ball joint and as a result the part will wear out prematurely.

In the case of Nissan Qashqai, for example, the ball joint’s dust cover in the original assembly from the OE constructor shows a lot of wear and very quickly and as a result the sealing fails.

Ball joint in the track control arm is prematurely worn out

This is why the part needs to be replaced very often. The replacement part for the ball joint, however, does not provide a long product life either in many cases. In such situations, the ball joint will wear out too fast again and safety for the car driver will be jeopardized.

How does the ridged design ball joint work?

Sidem has developed a new solution that provides an answer to early wear and tear problem. It is a ball joint that guarantees a long lasting sealing. The part was redesigned with a dedicated ridge or groove in the ball pin for the dustcover to be positioned in. With the dustcover more secured, a perfect sealing is assured in every situation. Additionally, by means of the edge at the end of the cilindric pin, there is no risk of the dustcover being forced too far down. As a result, the replacement will result in a long life of the part and a true quality service to customer driver.
