    LightbulbEasy Fix For Broken Air Compressor!

    in total, this will cost you about $4!....take two bike tubes from walmart...doesnt matter what size....cut a circle around the bottom of the valve stem so you have the valve stem and a little circle below it. cut the air lines on both sides of the rear wheels....plug the air lines inside the underside of the valve stem, snug real tight. you might want to put a dab of super glue on the outside of the air line b4 putting it in the valve stem. .and fill to desired hight with a regular air compressor. My cars air compressor hasnt work for about a year now. and i have tried to fix it but just couldnt get it done. not wanting to spend 360 bucks for a new one, i just thought and thought and finally came up with this. I have had this done for about 3 days now, driving around 100 miles, it hasnt lost air. I disconnected my oem air compressor in the car so it wouldnt turn on wasting battery. Hope someone finds this useful!

    Re: Easy Fix For Broken Air Compressor!

    What I did with my '91 Sedan Deville is I went to the auto store and got a kit that comes with air lines, a T-valve to hook up the 2 lines to the hook up for the compressor, and a few other things that would have came in handy if my Caddy had the option of adjustable shocks. I then bought about 10" of tubing that the factory lines coming from the shock and the new lines could fit snug in and sealed them with four small tubing clamps. It all cost me about $10. I ran the lines to the back of my car under my bumper to where it's not visible but easy to get to. Also this way the back end isn't higher on one side then the other.
