This was done with 'snoop' after tricking the ELC to full inflation.

Link fixed. Click refresh if you don't see the pics.



Climb into your trunk. Find the ELC/inflator selector valve. Pull the electrical connector off of it. Now turn on your inflator. The struts will fill instead of the inflator.

The valve should be behind the carpet on the seat back in the trunk, just to the left of the right rear strut tower.

Thanks for all the great suggestions/advice & the link

Now that I think of it the Bonne has been more difficult to start lately like the battery is low, probably cause of the compressor coming on while the car is parked.
I disregarded this and thought that it was the cold weather.

Which shocks do you guys like the best out of the four listed ?

I'm parking the Bonne for the rest of winter shortly, so I will take a look at it after the Beater is on the road.

Thanks again,
Dutch

I would like something similar without the dealer price, preferably with air assist.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks again,
Dutch
Ummmm.....did you even click that link to the Techinfo article? The replacement choices and options are clearly detailed in every way.

Ignore the reference to Reflex. Those are not made any more.

lol ya I checked it after I posted, then edited

Boost, I don't know what kind of mileage is on these, but judging by the condition of the car when I got it (Everything falling apart or ready to) I wouldn't be surprised if they were original.

I will post back as soon as I get a chance to look at her,
Thanks,
Dutch

Dutch, the table on that page clearly states the response rating on all 4. I just mentioned above that the Reflex isn't available.

The Sensatrac is the most often suggested replacement on this Forum since the demise of the Reflex.
