Citroen c5 x7 problem with suspension

Post by Martin Velkovski »

Hello
I have a problem with the Citroen c5 x7 with the hydraulic suspension.
The hydraulic oil tank broke and the LDS oil leaked. After changing the tank, the rear of the car was lowered to the lowest position.
When starting the car, the hydraulic pump starts, but the car does not return to its normal position.
After 10 minutes of operation of the car and (hydraulic pump), the electrical part of the hydraulic pump started to overheat.
After repairing the electrical part of the pump, the front of the car started working properly (it is positioned in a normal position).
But the rear of the car remained in the lowest position, and the pump still does not turn off and heats up.
Do you have an idea or suggestion?
Greeting.

Have you checked the LDS fluid level?

Check on lowest suspension setting that the fluid is below the A & B marks. Top up to the level shown and then try.
