    Sir

    Your repair kit looks as if it might be useful for my problem. Where can I get one? the links are to ebay, but there is nothing about your repair kit there...

    Hi again!!!!
    Just came home after a 3h session of fixing the car. Did rear brake disks and pads, oil+ filter and the COMPRESSOR!!! It was quite easy to do with the compressor in place, a little fiddly and proper lighting is recommended!!! the positive thing is that the whole operation took about 30min, most of the time went in trying to remove the cover(had to saw through one of the fixing points- badly rusted nuts). Did not have to remove any pipes or connectors, just took the Cylinder/top down and to the side and pulled the piston out as far as it came. switched the piston ring and put everything back together.
    WORKS A TREAT!!!!!! fast, silent and best of all, all the levels are reached and maintained.!!!!

    Fantastic!!!

    uuuuff! it took me the best of 3 hours to read through this thread but I learned a lot!!!

    Hi! My name is Chris and hello to all of you!

    Andy, you've done the works and already been a lot of help to understanding the nature of Audi's air suspension and related probs.
    As most others in this thread, I've had problems with my Allroad's suspension.
    I have a 2.7 lit 2004 model, bought about a year ago, with 130k kilometers on it and a what appears to have been a leak on the front passenger side from the beginning!
    As you described earlier, I marked a flattening of the suspension on the passenger side when parked over night at 1st och 2nd levels, often but not always.
    Otherwise the thing worked fine, sometimes it took a while to get you to the 3rd och 4th level but I didn't other problems and payed little attention to the matter since the manual stated that this can happen due to sudden temperature changes
    which happens often enough in Sweden!
    But... the day before yesterday it couldn't lift itself back again, even the driver's side flattened after a while and the pump gave up giving me the non blinking, fault lamp...
    Of course I tried a number of times but in the end I had to drive a distance with the front of the car hitting the bump stops at every "crack" of the road and I guess there is no way out but to change the bladder...
    Please tell me what you make of it, can it be that I need to change both front suspensions?
    The german online retailer you mentioned earlier at least gives an alternative to the really expensive swedish dealers!!

    Thanks for your help
    Chris

    Hi Chris and welcome to the forum,

    How is the car sitting now? All corners low?

    Can you hear the compressor running?

    Does the car try to lift even a small amount? try a tape measure at the wheel arch to watch if it moves

    Any error lights on or only after the compressor runs?

    My 1st thought is the leak is maybe too big or the compressor too weak to lift but answer the above to help us try to work out more

    Regards

    Andy

    Hi Andy and thanks for the quick response!

    That's my diagnose as well at the time, I think the leak became a tear...
    The car lies at what appears to be level 1 at the back end and level 0 at the front... the passenger side seems somehow lower actually but both tires lie under the arches...
    My recent attempts showed that it tries to lift it self to 1st level and I can hear the pump is running, a new try tomorrow with a measure will give more details.
    The dashboard suspension light is blinking at the start as it tries the lift, after some time it just stays on and the pump stops.
    I'll have more news tomorrow

    Regards and thansk again
    Chris

    Hi Chris,Ok that's good as it is definitely just a leak, the flashing is the car realising it is too low and so it tries to lift, after 2 min's of trying the pump will stop and throw the error light on solid, if you turn the ignition off and on again the error clears and it will try again flashing, if it cannot lift after 2 or 3 attempts I can only assume the leak is very big or the compressor completely knackered (I think leak), jack the wheel up on the front left and inspect the airbag,the front right looks low only as the left is pulling it down also, I think just the one leaking airbag, don't but anything until you confirm what has the leak/hole!! best regardsAndy
