air xantia

Post by loe hofmans » 01 Nov 2001, 04:33

I replaced my brake valve and my back spheres (3x) and now the car is "spongy"! Suspension and brake's. I let the air out at the back brakes and at the accumulator (screw). Is it possible that the screw (with plastic ring) at the brake valve is also to let the air out ??
Xantia 2.0 8v 1994
please let me know!

Have you tried going from high to low on the suspension several times, with a pause in between each movement?
