Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and, please, next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the air compressor assembly on this 2002 Chevy Suburban with the Air Ride system. It's the same part and similar process on these Suburbans from 2000 to 2013. The items that you're going to need for this repair are a new air compressor assembly from 1aauto.com and a 12mm socket and ratchet with an extension.

Your air compressor is right here and you should probably start off by removing your spare wheel. Then, what you want to do is pull out the clip on this hose, and pull it from the compressor. Then you want to reset that clip, by just pushing it back in. Next, you want to loosen these two 12mm nuts and the one in through this hole, and we'll fast forward as Mike does that. Lift the air compressor up and then pull it forward. You want to push the tab on this harness and pull it free, and then twist this hose free from up here.

Take your new air compressor assembly and connect the harness. Push the compressor back up into place and then push it down and tighten up those three nuts. We'll fast forward as Mike does that. The unit came with a molded plastic piece on the end of this hose. It's not necessary for the Suburban or this application, so take it off and then reconnect that hose and then reconnect your air line hose. We hope this video helps you out.
