SOURCE: 2006 bentley continental w/dead battery. How can

Normally if you use the key and turn it to the left and then to the right the car will start on the resident battery and all will be well. Do not use the start button. If all lelse fails then put a battery charger into the two cigar light sockets for 1 hiur at max 10 amp with ignition turned of and with wires trapped in closed door to switch all coutesy lights off and then there will be enough for the trunk lock to energise. If it is later spec there will be a handle in the trunk accessible thru the centre arm rest by an arangutang!""

SOURCE: I have a 2000 Bentley and I can't remove the rear set to pull the manual trunk release

If I am not mistaken, you have to remove the head rests, remove the bottom bench, fold down the armrest and remove the bolts behind it (Note: At the bottom, the bolts for the seat are held in by a clip... You just take a flathead screwdriver and pry it forward and it will then release. Make sure you dont let the seat-belts retract; it be difficult to get it back.) Typically, it takes about 2 hours to remove the seats. You will also need a metric set of Allen and Socket Wrenches to remove the bolts.

On the hydro suspension system there are spheres which act as shock dampers. These are pumped up by the engine pump and run around 2400psi max.

As the wheels move up and down the 'ram' you would call the shock absorber displaces fluid into and out of the sphere/s. If these spheres are more than 6 years old, they go hard, because the nitrogen gas in them has leaked away. ( Gaseous Physics. They all do it. Nitrogen has a smaller molecual than the rubber trying to contain it.)

This nitrogen gas pushes a thick rubber diaphragm towards the hydraulic fluid acting as a spring. The small orifice the fluid has to pass through into and out of the sphere acts as a damper to the wheels movements up and down. A sensor on the axle/s keeps the pressure in the system at the correct ride hight.

You need new spheres if they have never been replaced.

When should I replace my shocks and or struts
When a vehicle is brought into an auto repair shop for routine vehicle maintenance, the auto technician may suggest that the vehicle shocks or struts need to be replaced. Learn the function of a car or trucks shocks and struts. Find out why the shocks and struts need to be replaced and how someone can tell if they’re bad.

The Purpose or Function of a Cars Shocks and Struts

Shocks and struts serve the same purpose. They’re main function is to keep the vehicle from bouncing. A vehicle has front and rear springs to cushion the vehicle over rough road conditions. If there were no shocks or struts the vehicle would continue to bounce excessively. The shocks and struts prevent the car from bouncing by damping the springs.

What’s the Difference Between Shocks and Struts?

Shocks are usually used to dampen leaf springs, where as a strut is used to dampen coil springs. Shocks are usually a single cylinder in the open where as a strut is normally surrounded by the coil spring and are more massive and complicated.

That’s why struts normally cost a lot more to replace than a shock. On a car the front suspension usually has struts and the rear usually has shocks. Some trucks have shocks on the front and rear. Other than those distinctions, shocks and struts serve exactly the same purpose.

Why Should the Cars Shocks or Struts be replaced?

Keeping in mind that the purpose of shocks and struts is to keep the vehicle from bouncing, the following is some of the reasons why they should be replaced.

* An excessively bouncing car can be an uncomfortable driving experience.
* The vehicle can be harder to control leading to an unsafe condition.
* Excessive strain can be put on other vehicle components causing premature failure.
* Bad shocks or struts will cause the tires to bounce and create spotty or choppy wear on the vehicles tires.

How to Tell if a Cars Shocks or Struts are Bad

1. Shocks and struts can be oil or air filled. If they are leaking oil or air they need to be replaced. Consumer beware, some dishonest auto repair shops will squirt oil on the shocks, show the customer the leaky shocks and tell them they need to be replaced.
2. Another method is the bounce test. Put all your weight on the front or rear of the vehicle and push down on the vehicle. Let go of the vehicle and stand back to see of it bounces. If the vehicle comes back up without bouncing, the shocks are probably in good shape. If the vehicle bounces a few times, chances are the shocks or struts need to be replaced.

Shocks and struts are wear items, not maintenance items. There’s no set mileage or time limit when they should be replaced. If the tires seem to have a choppy wear pattern or the vehicle bounces excessively over bumps, the shocks need to be checked.

Look at the struts or shocks and see if they’re leaking. Perform the bounce test and see if the vehicle bounces. Replacing the vehicle shocks and struts when they’re bad will create a safer and more comfortable driving experience, not to mention saving money in the long run.

If just bouncy like riding in a wheel barrow, gas springs are the most likely fault.

If the rear is jacked up high then also look at the height control valve linkage in case it has become dislodged, damaged, moved. If not check the height control valve.

Suspension soft

I would say you probably need new rear shocks as they take out the spring oscilations.

2003 jetta the rear tires are wearing on the inside.I have had it lined up and was told there is no reason for this to be happening. Can the rear tires be shimed out?

If the proper alignment was set,the only thing that could be an issue would be the tire pressure. I would put 35 pounds of air ,in the tires and see if that might help. Also try to lighten the load on the rear of the car. Clean out the trunk ,ect,.. If that doesnt help ,maybe the rear shock absorbers are weak and need replaced. You can test by bouncing the rear of the car and it should only bounce one time. Even have a freind help bounce the car hard and it still should return back .Let me know if that helps

It is misting up because there is a leak in the housing somewhere. The solution would be to find the leak and sealing it with RTV. This would usually require removing the headlight assembly from the car to inspect it.

99 Deville rear air shocks not working.

This is an expensive repair sometimes and you may want to replace this system with inflatable air bags that fit inside the rear coil springs and then are inflated. I think they cost about $80.00 or $120.00 depending on the car.
