Title: Symptoms of a Bad Shock Absorber in a Mini


1
Symptoms of a Bad Shock Absorber in a Mini
2
The shock absorbers are hydraulic pumps like
devices that help to control the rebound movement
of your Mini's springs and suspension.
3
They ensure that the tires provide the safest
control and braking response from your car.
4
When the shock absorber eventually does go bad,
the Mini comes up with a series of symptoms of
which some are listed below.
5
Steering Wheel Vibrations
6
There are many parts that are inside a shock
absorber, such as the piston, seals and valves.
7
When these parts get worn out, fluid will come
out of the valves or seals rather than maintain a
steady flow.
8
There are vibrations that will become more
intense if you drive over a pothole, rocky
terrain, or a bump.
9
Uneven Tire Wear
10
Shock absorbers help in keeping your tires even
and aligned on the road.
11
The tires wear unevenly as you drive because
there are different areas of each tire touching
the road.
12
This will make your driving experience more
inconvenient and create a bouncing experience.
13
Leaky fluid
14
There are seals inside the shock absorber which
keeps the suspension fluid contained.
15
Worn out seals means the suspension fluid will
leak out onto the body of the shock absorber and
is visible on the road.
16
If such leaks go unnoticed, then your vehicle
will eventually malfunction after enough fluid
leaks from the shock absorber.
17
Slow braking
18
A very noticeable symptom of a bad shock absorber
is slow braking.
19
You apply foot pressure to the brake pedal and
then the braking system takes a few seconds or
more to respond.
20
This is a clear indication that your shock
absorber has gone bad and the problem needs to be
addressed immediately.
