  1. Thanks to all for your responses. I’m home now so thought i’d update a little. I have discovered that the black plastic joiner block wherethe air lines join just outside of the compressor housing had a stripped thread and it was allowing air to leak out depending on the pressure applied to the lines. Whilst this may prove to have nothing to do with what I experienced it is never the less faulty. I had a spare compressor with the black plastic bit attached so i’ve Swapped that out. The bags hold air and will hold air for days on end but the car still try’s to pump itself up to the maximum height. I have removed the fuse for now in order to stop it pumping itself up to the maximum height. Planning to investigate the load sensors tomorrow. On the basis they are both doing doing the same thing I wonder if the fellow above saying they could be stuck is right. When hitching yo the caravan it may have pumped itself up to a part of the travel the sensors haven’t experienced in some time.
  2. Went out to it yesterday to get something. Unlocked it and it sprang into life. It aised itself to normal ride height. Went out to it again a few minutes later, opened the door and it raised itself again this time as far as it’s able to. It now looks like a monster truck at the back. It has maintained its altitude and every time it’s unlocked the compressorsruns for a minute or so. I guess this would suggest the ride height sensors have had it.
  3. Hi, No caravan detached. It’s not doing anything and as I said when I bridged the relay the compressor ran but had no affect on the height of the car.
  4. Correct, we where towing a caravan and based on the tow I believe the suspension was functioning until we arrived at the campsite. After being g switched off for 5-10mins both sides have sunk completely. As we pulled into our pitch I scraped every speed bump along the way non of which where particularly high so the car is as low as it will drop in both sides.
  5. Hi all, towedour caravan down to Wells in Somerset yesterday. The tow Dow was absolutely fine. Pulled up outside the campsite office to book in. Went back to the car and the rear suspension won’t raise. It doesn’t even fire. I have recently replaced the control module and when I unplug and plug this back in the compressor twitches but won’t run so I assume that working. I brushed the relay and made the compressor run but it won’t pump up the car. I have limited tools and the ground is not appropriate for jacking with the factory supplied jack. My question is if I can bridge the relay and make the compressor run, why isn’t it pumping up at all. Does this indicate a bag has gone? I haven not identify an airleak whilst yhe compresoor is running. any help would be much appreciated.
  6. M535I Project

    Looks good if I do say so myself. Hopefully finish up the front and rear windscreen surrounds this week providing we can get into the boot and then the car is off to paint a week today.
  7. Wanted Brown dash

    I know, I know, not likely! I am after a crack free or very good brown Dash for a very cool 525e I’ve just bought in gazzel biege. Its low millage, has fantastic seats and is pretty straight underneath but the Dash is badly cracked. i know brown dashes are hard to come by so I will accept small cracks around the demister vents if the price is reasonable.
  8. E28 Alpine white panels

    Hi all, I am looking for a bonnet, a pair of front wings and a front nearside door in Alpine white. Must be rust free but don't mind having to do touch ups or paint odd bits. I'm in no rush so please commit this to your memory and get in touch if you spot something in the future. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. E28 525e - Etas Ready to Deploy to Nova Scotia

    I can't see the pictures for some reason. I will see you tomorrow though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Hi Mick, It's off the trailer and tucked up in the barn now. Once we've cleared out our current restorations, an M535i and an E23 we will be getting started on yours. I will run a blog at www.classicbahnstormers.com where one on an ex members m535i can already be found and I will reproduce the same thing here in the project section. Here's a few pics from the collection Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. What have you done on your E28 this week........

    Smug!!! Had to replace crank sensors yesterday and put it off all day. Got all the tools out, drill, drifts, Torch etc and settled down for a long afternoon. Much to my amazement I undid them and they both came straight out. It literally took longer to jack the car up lol. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. 10 digit number

    If you mean the number actually stamped into the inner wing, bit the wing bolts to, it's one of the identification numbers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
