BMW 540 Shock Absorber Parts
The BMW 540 Shock Absorber is a part of your vehicle's suspension system. Its main function is to absorb the vibrations and shocks generated while driving on uneven terrain. The shock absorber converts the kinetic energy generated by the shock springs into thermal energy. This energy is dissipated into the hydraulic fluid or gas. The twin-tube shock consists of a piston that moves up and down inside an inner cylinder. This compresses the hydraulic fluid in the inner cylinder and forces it to flow through the orifices into the outer reserve cylinder. This, in conjunction with the check-valves, slows down the piston's movement and produces the required dampening effect on the vibrations produced when the car rides over a bump. The amount of vibration dampening provided by the shock depends on the speed of the suspension and the number of orifices in the cylinder. Mono-tube shocks incorporate a single cylinder with two pistons called the working and dividing pistons. The dividing piston separates the hydraulic fluid and gas at the bottom of the cylinder. Both the pistons move in relative symmetry with each other and maintain the pressure in the tube at all times, thus providing the required dampening effect. Common symptoms of a faulty shock absorber include a hydraulic fluid leak or a clanking noise from the vehicle's undercarriage.
