Air receiver of system of the self-leveled suspension bracket

Some models are equipped with the air self-leveled suspension bracket which operates clearance of the car. The control switch of height allows to choose one of two levels of clearance – normal or high. Distinction of height between the normal or high level of clearance makes 40 mm.

The system supports constant clearance, changing pressure in the shock-absorber depending on loading of the car on signals from the sensor of height of the car installed in each spring.

The system consists of four racks of a suspension bracket, the air compressor, the air tank, a dehumidifier and pipelines connecting these components.

Service of the air self-leveled suspension bracket needs to be made only at service station.

During the work on any part of the air self-leveled suspension bracket check that the car is in normal (low) situation, the control switch of height on dashboards is switched off and removed a weight wire from the accumulator.
