Mobile Service on an MGF Trophy in Essex

Our second mobile job of the week on our trip down south, the fitment of a set of recharged Hydragas units to an MGF Trophy. Previously the suspension had been topped up with an oil based fluid, the system was contaminated and after draining it had to be flushed out before commencing work. After this was done the job went well and the car now has a superb ride and handling. Our final job down south is a Princess in East Grinstead tomorrow

Mobile Service on a Hydrolastic Maxi in Oxford

The first job of 3 mobiles we’re doing this week down South, the fitment of a set of rehosed Hydrolastic units to a Maxi near Oxford. The owner had a rear hose leaking and decided now was the time to replace all the units with a set from us with brand new hoses. One of the front units had been previously rehosed in the past and was of such poor quality it looked like it could have failed at any minute. Once completed we drove to Rayleigh where we are stopping the night in readiness for our next job tomorrow on an MGF Trophy here

Looking inside a failed Hydragas unit – the future is secure!

A freshly opened Princess/Maxi Hydragas unit which had failed and was leaking. The ruptured fluid diaphragm and outer diaphragm with damaged bead and de-lamination can clearly be seen. There’s no perishing of these components, this damage has been caused by using the car with no gas in the top chamber, normally a unit like this would have been scrapped but it will now receive new replacement diaphragms, be tested and then returned into service. The long term future of Hydragas suspension is assured with us

Mobile in South Wales

A mobile fitment of a set of recharged Hydragas units to an Allegro Estate in South Wales yesterday. It was a challenging job with seized, rusty bolts and both radius arm shafts seized into their bushes. The one shaft was seized into one of the bushes only and we were able to get it out after removing the radius arm from the car. The other one was totally seized and we replaced the entire radius arm and shaft along with the displacer. We come prepared and carry spare radius arms and shafts in case thus happens. It was a long day and a late finish but the customer was charged no extra. We have a fixed price policy, the only extra cost is in the event of us finding a leaking displacer where there is a surcharge

Mobile Service in Plymouth

Today we carried out a mobile fitment of a set of recharged Hydragas units to a very nice and original MGF in Plymouth, after completion when the customer drove the car he said the ride comfort was back to when he first had the car. This is what Hydragas and Hydrolastic Service Ltd is all about, keeping the car original with the suspension it was designed to have but bringing the ride quality back to how the car was when it was new

Mobile Service in Camborne

Today we carried out a mobile fitment of a set of recharged Hydragas units to a Maxi in Camborne, before we started the suspension was rigid and very uncomfortable, on removing the existing units both fronts were leaking, this is a result of using the car with no gas in the units. One of the replacement units we fitted has had the fluid diaphragm replaced by ourselves, this is a unit that was previously leaking and would normally have been scrapped, it has now been recharged and all good. Returning units which were previously leaking back in to service is a major breakthrough and has secured the future of Hydragas suspension. The car is now beautifully comfortable and drives like a different car
