Activa hydraulics.... again!

Post by Mikonood » 20 Jun 2002, 02:06

Having recently had the ARCS damper replaced on the OSF of my Activa everything was great, good suspension, great handling etc.
Got in the car last weekend and the suspension came up no problem but dropped at the back quite quickly, sudden drop, the lights came back on briefly and then all seemed fine. From then on the suspension feels very hard and occasionally drops at the rear when stationary.
Does the hydraulic system need to be bled after the replacement of the ARCS damper? Any thoughts? The mileage is 68K and is therefore due a major service at 73k when I think the fluid is changed anyway.
