Hi All, preparing for the F coming out of hibernation in a couple of weeks, the back spheres look a little low so need a bit of fluid and a pump up (does not appear to be any signs of a leak)

Can anyone recommend any where in or around Merseyside where I can get this done at a reasonable cost or should I invest in a DIY pump of the internet?

Your help and advice as always is appreciated (y)

Pumps are cheap and online from 40 quid to 100s. Firstly the car will be lower in fact the manual suggests up to 0.6cm loss per 1 degree below 17. So 10 degrees is 6cm drop. Which is what most look like in the freezing weather. So i wouldn't rush to pumping up ur suspension until it gets a bit hotter. You could measure it some day when closer to 15 or so degrees. And what u want is 364mm from center of wheel to wheel arch front and rear. There is a setup guide which goes through these steps i u google for it.

Mine get's done every few years. Bought an eBay pump the decent one not the bike pump style type and it worked a treat. Kept putting off buying one, thinking I would flog the F; but 17yrs later!

i also bought one last christmas as one of my rear sphere split and the mgr dropped to the arch, i paid £42 for the bike pump type and £20 or so for the fluid as i couldnt drive the car to get it pumped up at a garage nearest one being 45 miles away, once i changed the sphere it pumped up brilliantly, wasnt a difficult job, my opinion its definately worth buying one.

Thanks all for your responses and advice, I will probably go down the buying the pump and do it myself when the weathers a bit warmer
