SOURCE: air suspension 2002 olds bravada

I have a 2002 Bravada w/air suspension. When the compressor is loud it is bad. I bought a new one for less than $300 off the net but after 6 months it is not inflating the rear even though it runs briefly after start-up. It is most likely the compressor check valve. The Compressor Service Kit costs about $25 at the dealership. My rear air springs went bad (right side first) with cracked rubber and leaking. The right side was always lower when it would inflate and would leak until the whole rear was down. New air springs are about $85 w/o shipping @ GMPartsDirect.com. Also, the sensor can go bad but my buddy who works on Bravada/Envoy said this is usually NOT the problem. Compressors go bad after a few years and the air spring rubber deteriorates causing leakage. If the air springs leak, the compressor runs alot more and wears out faster. I'm not a certified mechanic, but have replaced the compressor myself and it took about 2 hours. As for the Compressor Service Kit instructions- you can search "Bravada Letting You Down?" on the net and a tech gives full instructions on how to service the compressor. He states that the compressor check valve sticks and it will not build pressure to inflate the rear of the vehicle.

as long as the engine temperature is normal, i would suspect a clogged heater core, the dex-cool antifreeze is notorious for building up deposits in cooling system. have heater core flushed first to see if it makes any difference

The simple solution is to pull the fuse for the compressor.

If you want this fixed, you most likely have a leak and will need to find and fix it. The compressor may also be rebuilding. Probably not going to be worth putting the money into fixing.

How tough is it to replace aircondition compressor?


you need to remove the coolant surge tank, intake tube and box, move the ECU out of the way, remove the headlights for access to the radiator bolts, remove the radiator fan and the radiator, remove the serpentine belt and passenger side wheel and splash shield-remove the front air dam, then unbolt the low and high pressure hoses from the ac compressor, then remove the compressor-it is easily a 3 hour job taking it out and putting it back in.

I have a 2002 buick rendezvous and the air compressor has locked up and broke the serpentine belt. Is it possible to re-route the belt to bypass the air compressor or buy a smaller belt? Any other options...


If you have the ac turned off the clutch on the front of the compressor should disengage. Then the ac pulley will spin freely and you can drive until you save up for a new compressor. You may want to save up they are about 3 to 400 bucks plus installation which is about 300.

Changing the serpentine belt with out an air


I had to do that once, but it was on an older vehicle that AC was optional. Probably your best bet would be to see if you can wrap the belt on there, but bypass the AC pump. Then just mark the belt with a white marker to get the length you need. Take it to the parts store and have them measure it with their guide. They should be able to find you one that length. If a Rendezvous came without AC, you could just go in and ask for the belt for one without AC, but I don't think they did.
