Attention C6 Owners

Another member of the Forum recently had his C5 X7 LDS tank explode at a recent tyre fitting session, when the vehicle was lowered back to the ground.

For those unaware, C6 should have the suspension raised to the highest position and the LDS tank cap removed whenever the vehicle will be lifted off the ground with the wheels hanging freely and unsupported. Not doing so will allow uncontrolled fluid to be drawn from the tank into the suspension circuit under the weight of the wheels hanging. When the car is lowered the weight of the car will force all the fluid back into the tank in an uncontrolled manner, putting huge pressure on the system - but especially on the seam of the LDS tank. Over time this can weaken, where it will eventually burst with all the inevitable consequences.

Members may like to download and attach these somewhere appropriately on their LDS tank or Engine Bay, as a reminder to service personnel or fitters (or self!).

There is a larger one with more detailed wording that you may decide to put on the tank or in the engine bay. There is a smaller one that points to the larger label, which could for example be kept with the locking wheel nut which is needed for alloy wheel changes - or handed to the fitter / mechanic.

The PDF can be printed directly, or the images can be downloaded and imported into a document where you can have several laid out on a page for more copies. The printout can then be laminated and then cut to size for fixing onto your LDS tank or other suitable location.

The file is available as a PDF that contains both images, or you can download the images independently by clicking the links in the table.
