Report Damper failed in E 906 return to the road A blog by andydclements in General Posted March 15, 2014 Well, the car finally went back on the road today. Battery charged, so trip to the fuel station (that's nearly as expensive as a new damper) and more air in the tyres followed by a short blast on a dual carriageway then home. Engine running fine (despite being laid up), suspension seems a little bouncy on the short travel, perhaps I'll reduce the damping so the bushes are doing less of the work. Clutch bearing is noisy when the pedal is clear, which has been a fault for ages but being laid up has made it worse again. Need to remove the interior trim, recolour the leather, replace the two pieces of roof lining that got damp and fit the front roof trim. Then I need to use the car.
