Renewing rear air spring

Recommended Posts

hi all

i think i've got a dodgy air spring on my 2000 Td5 auto 7 seater disco. The car is right down on the arch and won't come up with ignition etc.

a) is it likely to be something else

B) how do i get at the air springs (do i need to jack up the vehicle)

c) is it an easy DIY job to prelace a dodgy bag

cheers

One side or both? Is the compressor running continuously when the engine is running?

Soapy water is the way to find air leaks but a perforated spring is quite likely at that age, and it may have burnt the compressor out too if it has been running too long.

Not done it personally but changing the airbags is supposed to be easier than a normal spring :)

Also note Britpart do std. coil replacements for Discovery airsprings, about £150 a pair I seem to recall.
