Adaptive suspension.

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

I'm pretty sure my 2009 4.2 XK has adaptive suspension. Is there a component that can fail causing the ride to go hard and then back to normal?

Main dealers never allow me to talk to their technicians, only 'let's book it in to have a look at it'.

They'd want at least £100 just to tell me they can't find a fault.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Graham,

If you lift the bonnet and examine the tops of the suspension attachment points you should see electrical connectors (indicated on photo).

If you have these connectors, you have active/adaptive suspension.

That's as far as my knowledge goes.

Hi Tony.

Thanks for the reply. Yes my car does have the wiring.

Cheers.

Graham.

Hi.

The recent MOT advised that the N/S Drop Link on the rear suspension had play. I've had both sides replaced and this appears to have sorted out the Adaptive Suspension problem.

Cheers,
