Mobile Service on a Maxi

Another three days of work down south, a fitment of a set of recharged Hydragas units to a lovely Maxi in Biggleswade. Both front units we fitted have had the diaphragms replaced by us, these were previously leaking and would normally have been disposed of but are now back in service, this has secured the future of the suspension on these cars.

Mobile Service on a Princess in East Grinstead

Our final job this week down south was a Princess in East Grinstead, we already fitted a set of recharged units for the customer to another Princess he owns a couple of months ago. One of the units we fitted back then was a “re-diaphragmed” and recharged unit, we were pleased to hear that it has performed faultlessly but we were expecting this due to the stringent testing our units go through before fitting. Two of the units we fitted to the Princess today have also had new diaphragms fitted, all three units previously had leaks and would normally be regarded as scrap, these are now back in service. Investing in our project to replace the fluid diaphragms on leaking displacers and seeing it through to a successful conclusion was definitely the right decision as both front units removed from the Princess today were showing evidence of leaks. Had we not found a way forward and the situation had been allowed to continue the supply of serviceable units would have run out leading to difficulties for owners of these cars, now the future supply of units for all Hydragas cars is secure and owners can relax knowing their suspension needs are fully catered for

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
