I know its been a year+ since I posted this, but just have another question to know what to expect if I have the same problem in the future.
I will post some photos to the thread as you requested.
1) You seemed amazed that 1.5" inch would be for only one accumulator, technically what do you expect the drop in reservoir will be if one accumulator goes bad ?
2) How do they test at inspection that these cars have a bust accumulator at the back. When it originally went, the car went through inspection and they did not pick it up. Unless I drive with it I cannot see any indication it is bust doing the standard hoppity test pressing gown seeing if it comes back once.
Do you have a procedure for me to test the rear suspension before I take to inspection as I dont want to have a fail and not understand it. How do they detect it, I cant unless I drive it, which they dont. When I drive it I can feel it is dead.
3) Once the accumulators are replaced, does it lift the car slightly higher off the ground, or does it stay the same and the air in the reservoirs just control suspension shocks, but the level stays the same.
4) Also, I know you can set the height it must lift up, but I see absolutely no mark or indicator systems on the piston, where I can see if it lifted up or not.
I expected something like a pin that should align with another pin on the chassis, but see nothing. They can be adjusted and apparently you can see in some way what the initial height was before startup and the final height after startup. I just dont see any such indication.
There is very little online info available on the suspension of these models.
