On my 1991 Town Car I had the air suspension compressor replaced, it was located below the air filter in the drivers side fender well. You also have to remove the wishield washer fluid tank and a small plastic shield.
The compressor is located in a compartment in the left front wheel hub. To access it you have to remove the air cleaner and the washer fluid reservior.
the compressor is located under windshield washer tank and airfilter box both need to be removed. then unplug wire at compressor, there are three nuts 10mm holding the compressor in you get at them from under car.
under the air filter box
remove the air cleaner box it is underneath
the compressor is on the left side of the engine compartment (drivers side) front under air filter box
The air pump (compressor) is located on the driver side fender underneath the air filter box. Once you remove the air filter box, you will have to remove the compressor bolts from inside the wheel well.
turn switch off and on
the commpressor is located under the air filter on left front side. Just turn the suspension switch in the trunk off
I need help with 1998 Lincoln mk8 air ride compressor not kick in?
Likely your system has a leak and the compressor can't keep up with the volume of the leak. <><><> Agree. The air bags in the suspension of ours had developed small holes, and the compressor could not keep up. Get that fixed before the compressor burns out.
on the left side under the air filter box
the air bag compressor is under the hood on the front driver side usually under the air filter box
yes it can the tube is used to store the gasses from the cylinder

Open the hood, standing in front of the car, the compressor is located all the way on the right hand side(drivers) and all the way to the back(windshield) of the engine bay. it all the way on top of everything by the wheel well very easy to get to.
there is an air suspension switch located in the trunk

The pump is in a compartment below the air filter. I have heard that the pump usually goes out because the air bags or lines are leaking.

Sounds like you might be running into the same problem I had with my 93 town car suspension. You might want to save some time and money and do what I did...check out the air suspension conversion kits at Strutmasters.com Those guys really helped me out. http://www.strutmasters.com/lincoln-town-car-suspension-s/37.htm Justin
I'm not sure why you would want to disable this.. There is an on and off switch in the trunk on the passenger side. In the off position the air compressor will not operate.
In the trunk
A Lincoln Town Car uses hydraulic brakes, not air brakes.
