OK thanks for the replies, here are some of my replies :-
1) When you start the car, does the suspension on rear go up or does it still stay low?
When i unlock the car the suspension raises to normal on the rear, the front does not move as it is at the correct ride height. When i start the car the compressor runs, i assume to recharge the accumulator then it goes off approx 60secs of run time.
2) "If I put the car in Jacking mode the results are the same."
The results are the same as what??? Does the rear still go down overnight? Please be more specific. Thanks!
.......So the vehicle is losing height at the back overnight by approx 85mm, the suspension is in normal setting and normal ride height. If i put the car in jack mode and lock the car and walk away and leave it 24hrs, the car lowers on the rear by the same amount ie 85mm. when i unlock the car the accumulator discharges and raises is back to normal level, if i start the car the compressor kicks in and recharges the accumulator. putting the car in this mode makes no difference to the end result.
Just one other point, 600 miles ago the car went into Porsche to have the PRV replaced as the rear was stuck high. They replaced both PRV's on both rear shocks. As this was such a simple job I did not think that they could get this wrong, ON BOTH SHOCKS ??
The schematic in the manual shows that the shocks are joined together via a Tee Piece then they go back to the distribution block, is this true ? by what you say they both have their individual air lines going back to the distribution block. If this is true why are both shocks sagging, surely one would stay up and the other down if there was a leak in one of them. Does anyone have a schematic / drawing.
Thanks again, comments please.
