If you cannot repair the bags there is a great new 'airless airbag' called a SumoSpring. These are made from microcellular foam and cannot leak. They fit right into most existing airbag mountings. Call Steve at 888 832 8328 for more information.

Airbags are made of very durable plastic, depending on weather may become brittle with time. Has anyone worked on them previously,if so check for broken or missing seals in the bags. Turn off the system and disconnect one by one checking the seal, they are very similar to the o-ring seals used in the ac system except that they are bigger. you may use some soapy water to see if the leaks are from the bags themselves.

Range Rover l322 My front air supension is iactice/inflates then deflates whilst the back remains stable


They have problems with the air bag shocks leaking. The shocks typically have a large bladder bulit into them that will over time develop leaks causing the problem you describe. could be a damaged line to the shock but most often the shock. Start the car and run until it inflates. Stop the vehicle somewhere quiet then put your head by the top of the wheel that deflates. Listen and you should head an air leak. It usually requires replacement of the shock to fix.

The airbags on my 2002 Lincoln Town Car (which were replaced one year ago) have deflated right after I heard a popping sound. Checked the relay etc., and the compressor is still functioning. What kind of...


It COULD be that the air bags are leaking, although not likely if they are only a year old. Yes, the lines can break, but it will not cause the airbags to deflate right away. The solenoid on the airbags will keep the air in the airbags for quite a while. If the airbags went down immediately after hearing the popping sound, I would be looking for eather a large hole in one of the airbags or a solenoid that has blown out.
If the airbags went down slowly, it is more likely to be one of the lines. The easiest way to check for leaks in the lines is to spray them with soapy water while the compressor is running and look for the bubbles.

Airbag locations


In the steering wheel and passenger side dash.Due to the age of the vehicle probably doesn't have the curtain "side" airbags.The airbags were designed primarily for head on collisions. Here is some useful information to why the may have not deployed courtesy of http://www.asashop.org/autoinc/dec2001/collision.htm
How Air Bags Work To have a frontal (driver or passenger) air bag deploy, certain criteria must be met. One of these criteria is that the frontal impact must be within a 60-degree window, occurring within 30 degrees from the vehicle's centerline. Another key element is that the crash forces are equivalent to a head-on collision with an immovable barrier at 10-15 miles per hour. Because a typical automobile accident only lasts about 0.125 (1/8th) of a second, air bags deploy within 15 to 20ms after the initial crash impact. To create a protective cushion between the occupant and the vehicle's interior, the air bag inflates at speeds up to 200 mph within approximately 30ms after impact. This allows the occupant to contact a fully inflated bag within approximately 45 to 50ms after the initial crash impact. Approximately 100ms after impact the bag deflates.

Definitely sounds like there is a leak in your air suspension somewhere. I'd have a local shop check it out. There is a switch for the air suspension either underneath the glovebox right hand side of firewall. or in the back of the vehicle behind the left panel. it is labeled suspension

My licoln navigator front suspension is not working..stays deflated


First, you should have a warning light telling you it is not working. There is a switch for the air suspension underneath the glovebox-right hand side or in the rear hatch area on the left panel..make sure it's on. If all 4 air bags are deflated it could mean the air pump or actuator is malfunctioning.

How do you "manually" bleed the air bags in a 96 Lincoln Cont. ?


Shut off pump switch located in drivers side panel door in trunk. Jack up car at frame and support with jack stands. This will make sure the car does not come down on you when you release the air.
Pop retaining off of solenoid valve located at top of airbag and turn valve to first stop till air starts releasing

2003 Lincoln Navigator air suspension


I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at our conversion kits. these convert you from the airbag to a powder coated American made steel coil spring that is guaranteed to last the life of the car. Airbags and compressors are constantly having to be replaced. Also something alot of people don't know is that theses air suspensions are not meant to be in temperatures above 90 Degrees or below 40 Degrees. That is most of the world. The temperature will cause you to replace alot of bags. and typically when your replacing a bag you are going to have to replace the compressor to because the bag had a hole or small crack in it causing the compressor to over work and it will die. I posted the link below so you can take a look http://www.strutmasters.com/lincoln-suspension-parts-s/1.htm I hope I was of some help Good Luck!!!
