BX tick interval changes

Postby DieselBugs » Tue Jul 09, 2002 5:26 am

I've had my BX17 TZD for about 4 weeks and have covered most minor repairs eg new brake pads, stop solenoid, new LHM, thermostat, belts etc. and am about to tackle the frequently ticking regulator (about every 6 seconds at normal driving height). I know frequent ticking could be due to a faulty accumulator sphere, sticking reg valve or internal leaks from PAS valve, Regulator, priority valve, flow divider, compensator control valve and the like... However before testing all the individual components I noticed that the ticking interval increases at full height (to about every 15 - 20 seconds) Is this indicative of a particular component being faulty or does it rule out any particular component being at fault? Where's the best place to start testing for frequent ticking? <img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle>

Almost certainly its the accumulator, it will tick less on full. Change this its a quick and easy job. If this has gone almost certainly the others in each corner of the car will be in poor condition too as these get changed infrequently .
Expect a sphere to last max 3 years as the Nitrogen gradually leaks through the rubber membrane and is lost.

Thanks Broome <img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>. I was hoping it was the accumulator sphere. I got my hands on some 6mm clear tubing so I think I'll run the other tests just to satisfy my curiosity.
