OK... my GQ Patrol has those pump up air bags in the rear coils.. one
has a leak where it has obviously been rubbed through by the coil.
Does anyone know if this can be repaired?? Or do I need to bin 'em
and buy newies??? Any opinions welcomed!!! Thanks!

In one has rubbed through wouldn't you bet that the other one was probably close to the same. If it had been puctured that would be a different matter, you'd just replace the one.Carpe Diem

A quick question....I got airbags in my new(ish) 80 series, one side is flat, there are air valves mounted on the towbar underneath so I am assuming they run to the airbags. (Could be the shocks, I doubt it, but I haven't had time to have a decent look)
What pressure do you run the bags at?
How much to replace a popped one?
Cheers

minimum is 5 psi maximum is 30 psi,i think there about $300 per set but that includes hosing,valves and top rubber seat. give heasmanns (02)9557-5930 a ring.

Brian,

Have had Polyairs in an 80 series for over 18 months, and while I wouldn't rave over them, they do keep the rear up when loaded. Was cheesed off when one developed a leak, turned out to be the hose not the bag. So I would check the hoses before you buy a replacement bag.

Hooroo...
