I noticed the rod arms that connect to the ride height sensors for both my front driver + passenger sides are broken. Have any of you replace this? These sensors aren't exactly cheap either.
Looks like your links are shot, also. Boots are completely torn. Seems a good reason for replacement.Normally there's a connecting arm in between but you can see that it's broken off on both sides
Nods. Good eye Yes I know my links are shot. Been driving with rattles and crunches every day. Going to get them replaced soon enoughLooks like your links are shot, also. Boots are completely torn. Seems a good reason for replacement.
As far as the sensors are concerned, those are used to adjust auto levelling headlights as well as affect the ADS, so it attempts to adjust the suspension levelling to keep the car as straight as it can while cornering or otherwise tilting. Better get those straight!
Looking through the service manual it says that anytime the ride sensors are replaced, there's a bunch of headlight re-learning procedures that must be done. Some of the steps require, I would guess, dealer diagnostic electronic tools to reset computer things. How did you end up doing that? Did you bring it to the dealership?Search for junk yards, then search for the suspension ride height part or by part number.
I broke one and got it replaced via ebay, for $75.
