  7. In Holland but need to get the E39 back to UK and NSR suspension air bag is hissing ..I can feel where it's coming from...what I need to know is has anyone seen one of these off ..if I take the airline off from the top .. would I be able to pump in tire slime as temp fix (Audi forum special fix lol )....once home I can replace ..is it worth a try ? Rear bar suspension check light goes off it pumps up but will sink .....if it fails completly will tyre rub on wheel well or does the shock keep it from doing that albeit the ride won't be great
