    Default Xantia Height Corrector

    Hi-Does anyone have exploded pics/drawings of the above.I have been told that there are holes to be cleaned out but from memory there were only 2 on my sons car when I did it ?????? ago.

    Never really worked very well & keeps playing tricks.

    Thanks,

    Pekay.

    There is a passage connecting both sides of the corrector and it has some damper plates in it. I think that's what you mean. I've not pulled a late corrector apart, but some have those very small damper plates retained by a pressed in plastic part that doesn't unscrew like early correctors. If it's like that, I can't see how you'd get it apaprt without damage. Also, I understand that there is much less travel on Xantia-era correctors compared to DA/CX style correctors and that having them at their hydraulic centre when being adjusted is important. Perhaps, there is information on that in the manual? The basic layout will be the same as for earlier correctors. There are detailed diagrams an instructions on corretors for the DS, but it's not quite the same corrector.

    Although God has his ways, the forum search function and google also work pretty well.

    Searching for "height corrector" had 450 results.

    There are many pictures for old and new style correctors disassembly and cleaning.

    Below are some of the many. Good luck with your cleaning and most importantly let us know of the follow up of your actions ie. whether it worked or not so future troubleshooting has a record of history whether it worked or not.
