Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100
I am trying to replace my own lower control arms. Do i need to deflate the front air bags in order to do this. and how do i do it.
I am not sure if you have to deflate the air bags, but i'd assume so. First, turn off your air ride switch from inside your trunk. Then lift the front of the car in the air, make sure to lift from the frame. Next remove the wheels. To deflate the air bag here's what you do. First remove the solenoid retaining clip, located at the top of the solenoid. (It will come off with a flat head screw driver). Next turn the solenoid until it stops, (this can be counterclockwise, or clockwise depending on which side of the car your on). Once that is done, pull down on the solenoid until it stops. You should hear hissing as the air bag deflates. You can put the solenoid back in now, however i would leave it like that until you are finished replacing the lower control arm. Once your finished with the control arm, push up on the solenoid, and twist back into original position. Reinstall the retaining clip, and move to the other side of car. Hope this helps
