As one of the most important development partners and manufacturers of engine components and systems in the automotive industry, we at MAHLE develop products of the highest quality together with engine and vehicle manufacturers worldwide.

The same strict guidelines also apply to spare parts for the aftermarket. We ensure the high level of MAHLE products through multiple controls. But of course, none of this can prevent unexpected failures that sometimes occur in practical operation-often due to causes in the engine environment or as a result of operating errors, improper installation, or unsuitable operating materials. In our damage brochures, we have compiled a compact list of typical damage patterns for you. You will find causes and tips for avoiding such damage in the future as well as important repair hacks at a glance - clearly explained and illustrated.

In addition, our experts are also available to help you with complex damage processes, the explanation of which would be beyond the scope of the brochures. In such cases, we will examine the products on our premises and prepare a damage report for you. Please simply contact your sales partner.


We regularly provide technical tips relating to the powertrain, thermal management, and mechatronics in automobiles.
