I don't think you can fix this alone. Could be your gasket, so you need a same type gasket to replace it. It must be done in such a way that you seal the shock but do not hurt the gasket. If you decide to do it alone, be extremely careful not to scratch any metal surface. As for how to remove the shock, that is another story. You need tension screws, a stand, and some more tools that a service point usually has.

If you procced alone and need further help, let me know.

HOW TO REMOVE REAR SHOCK ABSORBERS 2006 RAV4




Difficulty: Easy-ish
Time: About 1 hour
Tools: Two 17mm spanners - ring and open. Long spanners may help.

As the chart below shows, it's quite normal for a shock absorber to have traces of oil around the top. However leaks like level 3 to 1 mean the shock absorber (SA) needs replacing.



Probably a good idea to replace in pairs.

As always, apply hand-brake, chock the opposite front wheel and without the vehicle raised, slightly slacken off the road wheel nuts.

How to change the rear shocks on a 2008 flhrse?


Raise the rear wheel off the ground and then with a no loss air pump apply more pressure to force any oil down the lines into the shocks, then release all air pressure and press the air line fitting collar in and disconnect the lines. THEN remove the upper shock mounting bolt and lockwasher and flat washer and then remove the lower shock mounting bolt and lockwasher and flat washer and remove the shock absorber assembly from the motorcycle. BUT do not lay it down as the oil will leak out and cannot be replaced so the shock would then be garbage. You could remove the air line fitting and plug the hole with a 1/8 NPT thread plug if the shock is to be retained and stored or etc.

Oil leaking.it is at the bottom of the shock absorber on the plastic mount. It bounces all over the place. is the oil coming from the shock absorber, if not where from?


You need to replace the dampers as it had failed and so leaked the oil.
check out the same type and replace. Make sure the alignment of the dampers and the mountings are not damaged or shifted

My rear shock absorber is not functioning well there is a hard knock sound at the rear everytime i hit a hump or bumpy road..i see oil at the bottom of the shock absorber...is the oil seal bad...


I would say Yes.Your shock has lost oil and compression and now you are bottoming out everytime you go over bumpy terrain.The shock will need a rebuild or maybe a new shock altogether.

It looks like my rear shock absorber is leaking oil. No sign of anything leaking above it. If it is leaking, do I just need to replace it? I'm guessing it is a sealed unit and once it leaks, it's...


Yes, they are a sealed unit, and once they start leaking, then you have to replace them, i would recomend replacing them with an aftermarket set, such as Koni, or KYB, there are many to choose from, cheaper than a standard set too.
The same applies if your bike has a single rear shock absorber, replacements are available.

What is service ride control


Service Ride Control means one or some of your shocks or struts are worn and may need replacing. The price for new ones is not cheap,

2003 Pathfinder SE is bouncing


> Does this vehicle have shock absorbers or leaf springs?
It would be either leaf or coil springs; shock absorbers serve to prevent that continued bouncing and these may be simply shot.
The crude way of checking shocks still works somewhat:
- Position yourself on each corner of the vehicle and through repeated pushing down and letting the corner come back up, get some momentum and then let go at the bottom of the cycle.
If the shocks (which may be located within coil springs- McPherson struts) are still effective, the vehicle should rise slightly once and then settle. If they are blown, there will be some continued 'overshoot.'
The leaked fluid can be checked for odor; brake fluid is pretty distinctive while lubricants will smell somewhat like oil or grease. This could be from a shock but most are now gas filled rather than with a type of hydraulic fluid.

How much oil do i put in the rear shok for a yz250


You can change it. Im looking for the correct amount to do it myself. I already pulled mine apart and bought a rebuild kit for it. Comes with a new nitrogen bladder, o rings for the seal, and a few other necessary items. Just remember to measure where the jam nuts holding your spring is so you can put it back in the correct location. As for the nitrogen i heard 150 psi. I'm fortunate to work at an offroad racing shop so i'm just gonna fill mine with nitrogen there, but i dont think you should get charged too much at a regular bike shop. Rockymountainatv.com has the rebuild kit. You will need the seals atleast. If i find anything else out i'll let you know. Hope this helps.
