Step 1: Remove head

WABCO AIR SUSPENSION REPAIR KIT
Clean the outside of the compressor to stop any debris entering the internals of the compressor.

Using a T30 Torx remove head bolts and remove head. If the bolts are seized or appear rusty apply WD40 to the bolts and threads, allow time to work then remove bolts. On some vehicles there is a temperature sensor fitted on one of the head bolts; remove this and remember to refit when refitting head later on.

 

 

 

Step 2: Replace seal

WABCO AIR SUSPENSION REPAIR KIT
WABCO AIR SUSPENSION REPAIR KIT
Remove old seal from inside of head, clean groove and mating surfaces and replace with the correct seal from our kit, please note some compressors use an 0-ring seal others use a shaped seal, we include both in our set, you only need to use one of these. Check cylinder for any damage; the cylinder is tapered, check for dents or scratches these can significantly reduce the life of replacement piston seals.

 

 

 

Step 3: Fit new piston seal

Note position of existing piston ring and fitment around timing pin and remove ring. Clean piston and piston ring groove and fit new piston ring in the same position as the old ring; fitting around the timing pin, compress ring in hand to ensure correct operation.

 

 

 

Step 4: Refit compressor head

Clean all mating surfaces and refit head. Install our new bolts applying a little lock tight to the threads. Refit temperature sensor if one was fitted.

 

 

Step 5: Test compressor output

WABCO AIR SUSPENSION REPAIR KIT

It is good practice to bench test the compressor before refitting to the vehicle. From the compressor you will see two wires One Red and White and One Brown. Connect the Red and White wire to the positive terminal of a 12v car battery and the Brown wire to the negative terminal. This will allow the compressor to run, check output of compressor if producing good output install has been a success and you can now proceed to refit to your vehicle.
