Replacement of hydraulic LHM liquid and returnable filter


In hydraulic systems of the cars of the Citroёn Xantia brand equipped with an active suspension bracket special mineral hydraulic LHM liquid of dark green color is used. Use of liquid of any other type is fraught with failure of rubber hoses and sealing cuffs of system. Store a stock of hydraulic liquid in tightly closed container.


1. Remove and empty in drain capacity the tank of hydraulic liquid (see. Head Uniform hydraulic system).
2. Also merge liquid from a hose of the high pressure connecting the central section of the tank to the hydraulic pump.

3. Release a clamp of fastening of two filters from below to the central section of the tank.

4. Take from the central section of the tank the rectangular filter.

5. Then develop as appropriate and take the round filter.

6. Wash out filters and the tank pure gasoline. Dry components, in an ideal having blown them the compressed air.

When using the compressed air do not forget to put on goggles!

7. Establish the washed-out filters on the regular place in the central section of the tank, then establish the tank (see. Head Uniform hydraulic system).
8. Fill in in the tank fresh hydraulic LHM liquid.
9. Fill with liquid of a cavity of a hydraulic contour (see. Head Uniform hydraulic system).
10. In summary check liquid level, in case of need make the corresponding adjustment (see. Weekly checks).
