Shock absorbers are part of the "Safety Triangle" along with brakes and tyres. They are continuously in use, therefore it is very important to have them checked regularly to ensure good road-holding and driving comfort.
- Increased braking distance. - Rapid wear of your tyres. - Suspension knocking when you going over a bump.
If you notice one of these signs, have your shock absorbers checked in one of our workshops. Our experts are on hand to advise you.
THE RENAULT SOLUTION
Entrusting us with the maintenance of your shock absorbers means benefiting of a detailed fault finding procedure where we check the front and rear shock absorbers and their seals for signs of wear or leakage. In order to maintain your shock absorbers for as long as possible, we recommend that you:
- Have them checked at every service. - Have them changed in pairs every 80,000 km. - Perform a geometry check when changing shock absorbers. - Replace the suspension bushings at the same time as your shock absorbers (more safety and no additional labour).
