  1. Hi Folks, A conundrum for you. Having problems with the near side rear air suspension; symptoms: only effects the nearside; offside is fine. drops periodically (becoming more often) when car is parked up and engine is switched off will normally drop within a minute or two and you can hear a release of air from the back of the car seems to be susceptible when the temperature drops a little (but TBH that could just be coincidence) when I start the car up, it levels out and all looks fine recently when driving, I've gone through a few bumps and smaller pot holes and it feels like its dropped (feels like its on its bump stops - again, only on the one side); after 20s or so it sets itself level again and I can continue. Originally when it started happening, I took it to the dealers. They ran through their standard tests and couldn't find any problems (not sure the suspension dropped whilst there); they checked the air bags - no leaks. Getting worse (again, only on the one side) so dropped it down to my local garage - it didn't drop whilst there; they lifted it, checked for leaks... nothing. No error/fault codes reported either. Their thinking: can't find any leaks - not the air "bags" likely the compressor, but there's no fault codes indicating there's any real problem there. Again, it only happens on the one side. If it was a compressor side problem I'd have expected it to effect both sides... Any ideas? Thanks!
