I have just purchased a 46k mile 1988 XJ40 - 545449
It still has its self levellers and the ride is amazing.
I think my accumulator is low on pressure, nitrogen side, and i am looking to replace it. Is the accumulator the same for the early and later models - i ordered an AC Delco 25528382 type. Mine looks to have a nipple from the valve black that screws into the accumulator itself - but most accumulators ive seen seem to have a male nipple/thread and not female fitting. Any help appreciated
Also I have noticed when the car is loaded there is a banging/heavy clicking sound coming from the passenger side bulkhead area.
I am wondering if its the solenoid valve the feeds fluid to the rear shocks - or just hammer because the accumulator is providing such little cushioning to the system (CBC9702 JAGUAR 98-99 XJ6 UP SOLENOID)
Does anyone know of a replacement self leveller if mine do fail (touch would no leaks and rides amazing)
