Hello all.

My names Andy and i have just joined here,after a week of lurking in the back ground `)

Anyway i am 2 weeks into new ownership of a 1997 p38 range rover 4.6hse. With l.p.g.

Its my first p38 model so i have got a lot to learn i believe,from the many hours of internet trawling i have done so far

I'm pretty lucky in that everything fitted is working so far !

But the one thing that is annoying is that i am getting a vibration from the EAS compressor getting into the cabin.

I have just fitted 3 new compressor suspension/damper bushes,which have helped slightly,but not enough.

The eas compressor itself seems to work reasonably well in lifting from access mode quite quickly,but i do notice it working maybe more than it should.But that could be because of its loudness !

The suspension stays inflated for at least 3 days without dropping,thats as long as ive left it so far.

So what do you folks think is causing the vibration ?

From the photo's i have seen on repairing the seal,do i see that there is a bearing in the crank area of the piston,where it attaches to the counter weight? Could that be the cause?

Also,when i do come to take off the air pipe (12mm bolt) from the compressor,will i instantly get a fault code due to loss of pressure?

And should the suspension be in the raised position or dropped down to the access position before disconnecting the air pipe?

The compressor looks pretty straight forward to work on,but i would rather ask for your advice first than risk setting off any faultcodes :pray:

Cheers Andy..

check it's not the lid of your airbox that's rattling - that was the issue with mine - it was annoying the hell out of me and one day whilst under the bonnet I leaned on the lid and the rattling stopped. So I am topless now and it's fine.

Regards

Andrew

x2 on the lid.

Also...even though you put new bushings on, the bolts for them may be broken off at the bottom of the box, which doesn't allow you to tighten them properly. It's a tight wire there...because if they are broke, it's because somebody over-tightened them.

The bottom of the EAS housing can sometimes rattle on the wheelarch where it is mounted. See pic of removed EAS box below, showing where mine was rubbing against the wheel arch.


This can be fixed by inserting a few fibre washers on the bolts to lift the EAS box a few mm.


Cheers, Paul.
