Q: Suspension air bag deflated

asked by on

The rear left suspension air bag is deflated.

Hi. It’s not uncommon for the rubber in suspension airbags to get brittle and crack over time. Eventually, these cracks permeate through to the air supply and must be replaced. Usually, the compressor will re-inflate the airbag if its a relatively small leak. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, inspect for possible air leaks on your vehicle and replace the suspension air bag if the problem persists.
