First Signs of Worn-Out Shock Absorbers in a Volvo

Slide2:

The role of shock absorbers is to keep the tires on the ground & allow you to maintain control of the Volvo on rough roads.

Slide3:

Shocks are attached to your Volvo using bolts and rubber bushings, serving as a link between suspension components.

Slide4:

Today's shock absorbers ensure smooth rides, quality vehicle handling, and longer tire and car suspension life.

Slide5:

This article talks about the first signs of worn-out shock absorbers in your Volvo.

Slide6:

Longer stopping distances

Slide7:

It is one of the most probable signs of bad shock absorber parts.

Slide8:

One of the shock absorber functions is to keep the tires on the ground.

Slide9:

And if the shocks are worn, they cannot help control the bouncing of the wheels.

Slide10:

Nose diving when braking

Slide11:

The worn-out shock absorbers let fluid flow out through the seal.

Slide12:

And that causes the piston to move excessively in the cylinder.

Slide13:

While braking, the nose of the car dives because the weight of the car swings more.

Slide14:

Rear squats

Slide15:

A shock absorber failure causes the rear to squat.

Slide16:

A squaring rear indicates rear shock absorber problems.

Slide17:

But whereas the noise dives during braking, the rear will squat when you hit the gas pedal.

Slide18:

Leaking shock absorber fluid

Slide19:

Generally, the shock absorber fluid leaks due to broken seals.

Slide20:

Leaking shock absorber symptoms include oil on the sides of the shock or the ground.

Slide21:

Leaking shocks will not control the oscillations and will cause handling issues in a Volvo.

Slide22:

Broken bushings

Slide23:

The bushings are ever exposed to the harsh conditions of the atmosphere.

Slide24:

Worn bushings cannot cushion the shock mounts from the suspension it attaches to.

Slide25:

As a result, Volvo makes a lot of noise, especially when driving in rough conditions.

Slide26:

The bad shock absorber has shrubberies close to its joints; these can break when your Volvo has experienced potholes or a few knocks.

Slide27:

Whenever you encounter this problem and suspect shock absorber failure, it is advisable to contact your Volvo specialist.
