2011 508 Sedan rear suspension diagram

Post by cornesoutafrica »

Hi everyone

I am looking for a rear suspension diagram for a 2011 508. the right rear wheel seems to have uneven wear. It is for a friend's car, so it isn't with me but I want to see if the suspension got bushes which may wear out.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

Regards
Corne

Hi Corne - we'll really need a VIN as even going on the first generation of these there are several systems available (Hybrid Traction Train, Pseudo Macpherson etc.)

Hi Marc

Will try and get it. A quick question, is there any similarity between the 508 suspension and the C6's Suspension?

No, none Corne. The variant on some 508s was simply a strut with a supply of fluid to firm or soften the ride - it was not hydractive at all.

Hi Marc

Not even the physical setup, meaning the bushes and bars etc? For some reason thought there are quite a bit of similarities on the suspension setup, apart from the hydraulics ofcourse...

I'll really need to go by the VIN because there are 2 variants (soon to be 3 with a new version for 2019) and the setups are quite different, so the sooner you get me that, I'll be able to let you know what's what Corne.

Ok, if you are talking about the rear multilink setup it is the same as the C6. However, although the parts look indentical and most have the same part numbers, there are subtle differences on some of the components like the nuts which are different sizes - so make sure you get the right part.

These are from the 508 for the VIN you supplied:

If you need part numbers - let me know table A, B or C and the item number.
