Research on Shock Absorber for Volvo S40

The 2004 version of the original Volvo S40 let go of the formers outmoded platform for a more modern one. Perhaps the best thing about the S40 is its floating dashboard, which is attached at the top and bottom, but is otherwise free standing, a design that has barely aged to this day. Although the front seats are cozy, the rest of the S40 is pretty tight. To improve crash protection, Volvo moved the front firewall back, compromising leg room in the rear seats. The payoff for the loss of stretching room is the improvement in safety made by moving the firewall. Back in the '80s, when Volvo was famous for making safe cars, the brand's vanguard was an ugly, slow, heavy machine called the 240. When Volvo tried to replace the 240 with a more "modern" boxy model, it was complained by some that the Volvo gained style and lost its soul. The fact is that the old Swede's spirit lives on in the S40.

A shock absorber consists of one or more pistons that flow through a thick oil as the wheel to which it's attached moves up and down. The motion of the piston through the oil converts mechanical energy to heat, damping the motion and helping bring it to a stop; this helps to stop the wheel from bouncing after each bump. The oil and the piston are sealed within a closed container and under normal conditions oil doesn't get out and none ever needs to be added.

Every vehicle sold today has at least one shock absorber for each of its wheels. The three things that are most likely to go wrong with a shock are torn or brittle seals, which can cause a fluid leak that takes away the shock absorbers ability to absorb energy. The entire shock, or the piston that moves inside it, can be bent from an impact, and a bent shock absorber may not move properly or it may leak. Smaller parts inside the shock may wear out over time or due to an impact.

These problems are usually due to either age or accident. Modern shock absorbers are designed to last several years and over 50,000 miles, but eventually the seals do wear out and they begin to leak. Any accident that involves the suspension has the potential to damage the shock absorbers. A bent or dented shock absorber almost always needs to be replaced. After a major accident, the repair shop will examine your shock absorbers to see whether they need replacement. It is important to understand that accident, in this context, includes not only serious crashes but anything that jars the suspension, including hitting curbs, large rocks, and deep potholes, or even a rock being kicked up against the shock while driving on a dirt road.

When any of these things go wrong, shock absorber replacement is almost always necessary. It is also important to replace a failing shock absorber as soon as possible, because a car with a bad shock absorber can become difficult to control in an emergency.
