Way to Identify the Failed Shock Absorber in your BMW

Description:

In BMW, the shock absorber is a component that is there in the vehicle’s suspension system to reduce the unwanted impacts of traveling over rough thoroughfare. Also, the role of the shock absorbers in improving handling and ride quality is ultimate. Aggressive driving on bad roads or hitting potholes often can damage the shocks. A damaged shock can cause excessive vibrations in the steering wheel and swerving during the application of brakes. That’s why bad shock absorbers need to be spotted and fixed consulting an authorized car professional. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Title: Way to Identify the Failed Shock Absorber in your BMW


1
WAY TO IDENTIFY THE FAILED SHOCK ABSORBER IN YOUR
BMW
2
Shock absorber keeps the tires on the ground to
maintain the control of the BMW.
3
While the shock absorber is merely a link between
two suspension parts.
4
All parts of the absorbers are attached to the
car using bolts and rubber busing.
5
Eventually, numerous things can go wrong with a
shock absorber.
6
The following points define the signs of failed
shock absorber in your BMW.
7
FLUID LEAKAGE
Fluid leaks from the shocks body will run down
the side of the shock towards the ground.
8
Loss of fluid will cause a loss in the ability of
the shock to perform its function.
9
SWERVING IN TURNS
If piston seals inside the shock are wearing out,
then you will notice
10
? Uncontrollable fluid flows ? Extreme movement
of the piston
11
When you take a right turn, it will shift to the
left during the turn and cause a swerve.
12
WORN TIRE
Damaged shock is unable to keep the tire firmly
on the road surface.
13
When any part of the tire contact with the road
it will wear out and cause
14
? Uneven tire wear ? Patches in the tire tread
15
VIBRATIONS WHILE DRIVING
Worn piston seals inside the shock allow fluid to
flow and overreact on tiny bumps.
16
Due to these reasons, you will feel the vibrated
steering wheel on your hand.
17
BRAKES NOT RESPONDING
Due to the worn shocks, the brakes take extra
time for the car to take up.
18
So, it will extend the stopping distance required
to come to a complete stop.
19
CONCLUSION
If you notice any of these signs in BMW, contact
a mechanic for inspecting the shock absorber.
20
Professional mechanics will check the condition
of the shock absorber and fix it.
