The MGF featured a revolutionary and compact suspension system from conception, the so called hydragas system. This featured pressurised canisters in place of coil springs. The vehicles suspension hardware (wishbones, dampers, anti-roll bar etc) is designed around this system and features minimal component movement but exceptional performance with a ride quality not achievable with conventional coil springs. It really is a great system when it’s working right and properly maintained.

The problems come when there’s a leak. This could be fluid from the bottom or gas pressure from the top the hydragas unit, either/or will result in a harsh ride and the car sits very low. Often MGF’s are driving around on the bump stops with drivers assuming this to be the vehicles normal, ultra harsh ride!

Replacing the hydragas units as a set will return the vehicle to it's original specification, as it was envisaged by the suspensions wizards at MG.

Suitable for standard MGF suspension (For Trophy spec. use RP1975R)

Set includes reconditioned front and rear Hydragas units (equivalent to RNK100070 and RPJ100020). The units are fully refurbished and charged with nitrogen as a matched set.

Note. The cosmetic appearance of these units may vary.

Old units must be returned in a serviceable condition. Units that are split will not be accepted.

N.I.
This pump comes with full instructions for safe depressurisation and subsequent refill/pressurisation of the hydragas units for MGF.
This is an ideal tool for all MGF owners who will be able to adjust the suspension height and therefore ride characteristics of their MGF.

The kit consists of the following:
2 x front spring canisters
2 x rear spring canisters
2 x front non adjustable dampers
2 x rear non adjustable dampers
4 x rebound stops & screws
1 x fitting instructions

Fitting the MGF Hydragas Suspension Replacement Kit to an MGF is within the capability of an owner who is competent and familiar with working on many aspects of their car beyond simple servicing, and who has a comprehensive selection of tools and good working facilities. However, XPart recommend that it is fitted by competent motor engineers and that the fitting instructions are strictly adhered to. If in any doubt, seek professional assistance.

As a guide to professional fitting costs it is worth noting that the MG Rover time allocated for the replacement of standard displacers and dampers is listed at 2 hours per side. Fitting the MGF Hydragas Suspension Replacement Kit should occupy a similar time frame.

Note! Any seized nuts, bolts or other fixings, which is a quite reasonable expectation on a car made before 2002, will lengthen that time.

The hydragas suspension system operates at very high pressures, nominally 400psi, so has to be given respect if injury is to be avoided. This system needs to be depressurised before the hydragas components are removed and we can only advise the use of the specific hydrolastic suspension pump to complete this process, available separately as RP1165. 

Vehicle Insurance
Please be aware that the majority of motor vehicle insurers will require you, the owner, to advise them of changes made to your vehicle. Owners of cars fitted with the XPart Hydragas System Replacement Kit should advise their insurers that the conversion has been carried out. Should your insurance company request it, XPart has pre-prepared a declaration that you can send to them, it can be found in Section 3, Page 15 of these Fitting Instructions.

Please note that XPart cannot guarantee that your vehicle insurance company will provide insurance as a result of the declaration.

Fitting is as a direct replacement for the original displacer, utilising the original pressed steel mounting plates. There is a slight fiddle to mount on the balljoint then offer up to the body, with the adjuster fully in. Once bolted in place the adjuster is wound out fully to set the car at the optimum standard ride height. The car can be lowered only to a point which does not interfere with the standard geometry.

The Xpart MGF Suspension Kit, designed and manufactured to be fitted as a complete system, replaces the original Hydragas displacers (Rimmer Bros will buy the old unit Hydragas displacers from you) and shock absorbers with new coil spring units (utilising the original pressed steel Hydragas mounting plates) and new matching shock absorbers.

The kit provides handling and ride characteristics somewhere between that of the MGF and the firmer, sportier ride of the coil sprung MG TF.

The kit includes four spring units (front and rear), four non-adjustable shock absorbers and comprehensive fitting instructions. Note that while the spring units are adjustable, this feature is really intended as a fitting aid and not as a means of altering the ride height of the car. Note also that the Xpart kit is not suitable for cars with lowered suspension knuckle joints.

Did this item work well with your project? What vehicle type are you using this for?

Worked fantastic. In Australia I don't think there are many Garages with a Hydrolastic Pump. Took the job on myself as my gap between centre of wheel and top of wheel arch was 300mm not the 360mm specified. the instructions were concise and doing this job was so easy to do on my MGF. Now I get to keep what's left of my fillings. Thank you Rimmer Bros. Great service and fast mail. Regards Glenn

The fitment of the kit took the 4 hours that were advised During the test drive the car was transformed and we are now waiting for the weekend to go on a longer drive Well worth the cost for something that will make car much more enjoyable
