Lift Cylinder Application

When Do Problems Occur with Lift Cylinders for Vehicle Tailgates and Doors?

Problems with lift cylinders for vehicle tailgates and doors typically occur due to wear and tear, improper use, or poor maintenance. These issues can lead to a decrease in the performance of the lift cylinder, resulting in slow or uneven lifting, leaks, or even total failure.

Solving Problems Associated with Lift Cylinders

Problem 1: Slow or Uneven Lifting

If the lift cylinder is not raising the tailgate or door evenly or at the correct speed, it might be due to a lack of hydraulic fluid, air leakage, or wear and tear on the seals.

Solution

Check the hydraulic fluid level and refill if necessary. If there's air leakage, bleed the system. If the seals are worn out, they may need to be replaced.

Problem 2: Hydraulic Fluid Leakage

Hydraulic fluid leakage can occur due to damaged seals or a crack in the cylinder.

Solution

If the seals are damaged, replace them. If there's a crack in the cylinder, the entire unit may need to be replaced.

Preventive Measures

Regular maintenance and inspection of the lift cylinder can prevent most issues. This includes checking the hydraulic fluid level, inspecting the seals for wear and tear, and ensuring that there's no air in the system.

Confirming Problem Resolution

After implementing the solutions, test the lift cylinder's operation. If it's functioning correctly, the problem has been resolved. If not, contact the manufacturer's technical support for further assistance.
