today i went under my car to finally get some new rubber hangers on the exhaust cause all 4 the old ones had completely tore off and the pipes were just hanging. as soon as i got it, i had tied up the exhaust with some type of long fastener flat belt type thing i had found and it held up. lol with that been said, i noticed a line under the passenger side was broken. i looked at where it might go and it looks like some box under there, it has a little nipple where the tiny rubber hose would go, but i dont know what it could be lol i need help. it’s directly beside where the exhaust hanger goes. heres some pics any ideas?what IS that ???? 04785e10

Yeah Mekk, it's the air pump. Just a hose.
Asked my brother and that's what he said too.

thanks for confirming, the hose should be easy enough to replace for now. ill probably end up converting the air suspension to coilovers in the future

Sure Mekk ,no problem. God bless you for resurrecting another one . Try not to spray paint anything. Replace only with original factory parts (especially interior) if you can.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Check if it is actually working.

I would not bother changing to coilovers because the air shocks are not much $$ and are readily available.

will do! ive never really heard the pump running but whats crazy is i didnt notice any suspension issues while i was driving the car. im sure the parts for the pump aren’t that expensive or hard to find.. i just rather have the car sit lower, the stock height and the air suspension just isnt really my cup of tea.

If everything is working correctly, the pump will run from 3-5 seconds as a check, EVERY TIME you cycle the ignition on AFTER a 17-35 second delay. You can simply turn the ignition on without starting the engine. Then walk around to the right side rear wheel and wait for 35 seconds. The pump should briefly run for 3-5 seconds. If the system isn't working, and obviously, yours isn't, the back of the car will be low. This makes the tire camber excessively negative, and you can see it. The tops of the rear tires will tilt in. There are no other symptoms, so you wouldn't otherwise notice.
