Bentley Air Suspension Systems

Maintaining and Repairing Your Bentley’s Air Suspension System

Bentley vehicles epitomize luxury and engineering excellence, and their advanced air suspension systems are a testament to this commitment. These systems provide a smooth, comfortable ride, enhancing the driving experience to match the refined aesthetics and performance of Bentley cars. At Santa Monica Service Rolls Royce & Bentley, we understand the intricacies of maintaining and repairing Bentley air suspension systems to ensure your vehicle continues to deliver the unparalleled ride quality you expect.

Understanding Bentley Air Suspension Systems

Bentley’s air suspension system is designed to provide adaptive ride height and damping control, ensuring optimal performance across various driving conditions. This sophisticated system uses air springs, electronic dampers, and a central control unit to adjust the suspension settings in real-time. It offers several benefits, including improved ride comfort, better handling, and the ability to raise or lower the vehicle for different driving scenarios.

Common Issues with Bentley Air Suspension Systems

Despite their advanced engineering, Bentley air suspension systems can encounter issues over time, especially without regular maintenance. Some common problems include:

  1. Air Spring Leaks: The rubber components of air springs can wear out or develop leaks, leading to a loss of air pressure. This can cause the vehicle to sit lower than normal and affect ride comfort.
  2. Compressor Failure: The air compressor is responsible for maintaining the correct air pressure in the suspension system. Over time, the compressor can wear out or fail, resulting in an inability to adjust the suspension height.
  3. Electronic Malfunctions: The suspension control module and sensors can develop faults, leading to incorrect suspension settings or warning lights on the dashboard.
  4. Valve Block Issues: The valve block controls the distribution of air to the air springs. If it becomes clogged or malfunctions, it can lead to uneven suspension or a failure to adjust properly.

Importance of Regular Maintenance

Regular maintenance is crucial to ensuring the longevity and performance of your Bentley’s air suspension system. At Santa Monica Service, we recommend periodic inspections and servicing to catch potential issues early and keep your suspension system in top condition. Our maintenance services include:
