    Default XANTIA 95' td

    I have a Xantia 95' Turbo Diesel, and I have replace all 4 Spheres, the ones on the wheels but now I am noticing that the car runs like a Kangaroo and has a hard suspension, does the accumulator sphere needs changing or there is more to worry about? thatnks

    You should check your accumaulator sphere. if the LHM oil is looking murky it should be changed

    Sounds like the replacment spheres are duds to me.

    The accumulator will not affect the ride quality, it will however affect the cycle time of the hydraulics. It is your hydraulic storage so the pump doens't have to run continuously.

    I'd refit the old spheres and get the new ones replaced. The you have any sphere testing gear ?? One or all of the new spheres is most likely flat.

    Does your car have hydroactive ? If it does then each axle will have a centre sphere as well as the one on each corner. If these are dead then your car will effectively be in hard mode all the time.
