Hi, xmas has come and gone, and this winter's fault has appeared.
The right/rear suspension supply pipe (between sphere and ram) has become corroded and is weeping slightly, but not dripping and the suspension works OK. The part is 5270QQ, about £60 from Citroen (a little less elsewhere). Reading other posts, it would appear the pipe can be replaced without a Lexia etc.
1. Would I be right in assuming that the system can be depressurised simply by cracking open the pipe unions and catching the fluid?
2. After fitting the pipe, would I be right in assuming that the car will self-bleed with the engine running, and topping up the fluid as necessary?
3. What should be the car suspension setting for the job? for example
Car? - assume rear on stands?
Suspension setting? - highest as for jacking, or lowest?
Wheels? - hanging down or pushed up by jacks?
I hope my questions make sense.
