    Which Wurth products are useful?

    Hello,

    Pretty sure there are a lot of good products out there for the meticulous DIY people like us that work well to maintain our cars, with Wurth being OE supplier to MB and never heard a bad thing about their products.

    I'm currently thinking of picking up the HHS 2000 or 5000 lubricant to refresh the door mechanisms.

    I don't remember if it has been mentioned on the forums but are there any other Wurth products that I should pick up while I'm at it? Will be asking my mechanic to help purchase it, as I don't have access without a trade account.

    What was that magical grease or lubricant that Gerry always mentions, was that from Wurth?

    Also does anyone know how HHS 2000 compares to HHS 5000? After watching their videos and reading their marketing materials, I believe HHS 2000 is the original and 5000 is basically the same thing with PTFE (Teflon) which is a good thing, but not sure if there are any downsides to it.

    Please recommend me any other car maintenance/mechanical-related good products along these lines - would really appreciate it.

    Wurth Glass Cleaner

    Not a "mechanical" product that you are looking for but a very solid Wurth product.

    "magical grease or lubricant that Gerry always mentions," you are referring to this Wunderpaste?

    Re: Which Wurth products are useful?

    I think Wurth products are really excellent - they can be a PITA for civilians to buy here in the US unless you know where to get them.

    For many chemicals, such as the window cleaner and the like, it's much easier to just go with a regular product like Griot's Garage, Meguiars, or Sprayway foaming glass cleaner.

    Some Wurth stuff has no substitute, and those are the items where it makes sense to search them out and buy. Perhaps Amazon could be a good place to try.

    Cheers,
    Gerry

    Just as some parts have no quality, some Wurth products have NO substitutes, only substandard alternatives, ie. . . hood pad adhesive and rubber treatment.

    I know they are expensive, BUT, you will be pleased in the long run.

    Re: Which Wurth products are useful?

    This is interesting to read – there is a Wurth ‘supermarket’ near me. I’ve been in it once or twice for bulbs etc – it’s quite bewildering the massive range of stuff they have like adhesives, sealants etc. Next time I’ll take a closer look. I’d be particularly interested in a good strong sealant for rear w124 Diff Covers.

    Wurth products while not carried at wally world or AZ- they are easy to get USA.

    1) Try amazon
    2) Order direct from the company
    3) find a regional rep.

    Even with the shops, everything is done online and drop shipped these days. I've always been a big fan of their products and have used them for years.

    In the glass cleaning segment, anybody have experience with Stoner Invisible Glass and the Wurth product?

    I've used Stoner for many, many years.

    I haven't tried it yet, but I haven't found any other companies that offer a rubber-specific lubricant similar to Wurth Rubber Care (12oz spray can) and/or Gummi-Fit (75ml sponge applicator). Not many vendors carry either item in USA.

    Love all the suggestions, I'd love to try out the glass cleaner. I heard Stoner's Invisible Glass is some of the best but Wurth might be worth trying.

    Does it leave a nasty residue after application? There is a small applicator bottle thing made by Einszett called Gummi Pflege. It didn't work exceptionally well and I stopped using it. It did leave a lot of residue on the windows (when applied to door seals) so maybe the Wurth one would be worth trying.

    Also does anyone know the difference between HHS 2000 and HHS 5000? Is it fine to use HHS 5000 in place of HHS 2000?

    Re: Which Wurth products are useful?

    I had a brief visit today going past the Würth store near me. They have a mind boggling array of sealants / cleaners / adhesives!

    I got the items pictured for now but will be back. The Zinc rich paint can is VERY heavy for the qty so that suggests it’s got a lot of zinc in it. (Unlike poor performing zinc paints which weight wise feel just like any regular paint!) I will be using the zinc spray on my CE where I will be doing weld repairs. Then overcoating with rubberised stone chip guard and Black underbody Waxoyl shutz

    I have stocked up on some Wurth silver paint and clear which I'm going to use to repaint the wheels on my old Land Cruiser. Did this in the past with an old BMW and they came out really well.

    My understanding is that the Griot’s Garage Silver wheel spray paint is re-branded Würth wheel paint.

    Yep, I met a Wurth Rep at the shop many years ago...he said Griot's uses Wurth products and puts their name on it !

    Cost aside, I like all the Wurth products I've tried.

    I’d be interested to know what other Griot’s products are Würth sourced.

    Thanks everyone for all the suggestions.

    Just sent my MB master tech a huge shopping list.

    Will see what he can pick up for me.

    I've used their satin black spray paint for ever and found none better. The red primer is also good. As mentioned the high temp resistant spray adhesive for hood pads etc works well.
