Range Rover Suspension Fault Hailsham
Looking out for a Suspension Fault on your Range Rover
Your Range Rover allows you to adjust your ride height whilst you drive using its air suspension system. For example, motorway driving would usually require you to choose a lower ride height for a smoother drive with better handling, or, if you were taking your vehicle off road, you would need to adjust the height to allow for a raised suspension.
Problems with your Range Rovers suspension can be common and often they can be noticeable even before your dashboard shows a warning message or light. A typical message that may display is 'SUSPENSION FAULT NORMAL HEIGHT ONLY'.
If the ride of your vehicle is feeling different and you think you may have an issue with your suspension then these are the warning signs to look out for:
- Any unusual noises
- The car tilting to one side
- The vehicle is 'squatting' (this is where the front end of the vehicle stays inflated whilst the back end sags)
- When coming to a full stop your Range Rover springs up at the back but dips in the front
- Error codes & suspension fault messages
What Causes this Problem?
To correctly diagnose the problem with your vehicle it is important you take it to a specialist garage. At South Coast Garage we use state of the art Land Rover and Range Rover diagnostic equipment and every member of out team is highly qualified and fully trained. A suspension fault on your Range Rover can be due to a range of reasons, let our experts take care of it. For the majority of repairs we provide a first time fix, no matter the size of the job.
The most frequent cause of a broken suspension is due to a problem with your Range Rovers air compressor. From many years of use this can start to fail which means air is unable to pump through the system efficiently. The issue can also begin from worn front air springs. These springs are made from rubber and in time can begin to wear down and dry out. Suspension faults can also be caused due to damage to your vehicles height sensors; these measure the distance from the ground. If the wiring becomes loose or damaged it can cause a technical issue. South Coast Garage can help, whatever the cause may be!
