i have a citroen xantia 1996 i replaced one of the rear spheres and 2
months later i relaced the other rear one now you can push the back down
really easily...is this normal? does anyone know what the correct height
is for the front and rear suspension??i think the suspension is going to
high...any ideas thanks
update.. i have just noticed that with the lever in the correct driving
position start the car up it raises to over the correct height then when
you turn car off it goes back down to what it seems is the right height
top of rear wheels just level with the top of the wheelarch..
Sounds to me like both symptoms show the system's working properly.
Although you need a new accumulator and anti-sink sphere, and probably
to sort out a leak somewhere. I presume that was the first time the
spheres were replaced.
The wheelarch should be some way above the top of the tyre, the same
as most cars (but not previous Citroens), and the suspension should be
soft. If you sit on the rear, it should sink down, but then rise up
after 10 seconds or so.
When I said under warranty I wasn't being clear enough, it was second hand
and under a 3 month warranty or was it 6 months. I'd never recommend Warners
of Gloucester to anyone after dealing with them over that car.
