Hi i have a 2004 T1 with air suspension and i have fitted adjustable links from the upper control arm and the height sensors so i can run lower ride height, the problem i have is that the right hand front is 10mm lower than the left front and when you adjust one side it changes both sides. I refitted the stock links and it is still 10mm out,is there a way to correct this?

Did you re-calibrate the ride height with VCDS ?

I do have a scan tool and i attempted to change the suspension code from 0015521 to the R50s 0015541 and it would not accept it.

No changing the code is not what I mean.
This should fix it.

Just goes to show you how much the ownership of a VCDS cable is worth to a Touareg owner.

Hey thanks Drag you have helped me again, I was under the impression that if I just swapped out the links it would trick the module and lower the car by the amount that I lengthened the link, I managed to get the car level but on the way home the running gear fault came on.

Amen to that, brother Drag. I think people are getting tired of how many posts I've put up every time that cable saves me money ... and it is literally in the thousands. And I had to put new sensors on my air ride and recalibrate - saved a couple of hundred right there I'm sure.

The computer may be sensing such different changes from the sensors and causing it to throw an error code.

X2 (or 3 or 4...) on VCDS. Just this weekend I used it to diagnose an HVAC problem and it saved me from having to tear apart my dashboard.

Once you have VCDS, you can recalibrate the system. It will also allow you to adjust the ride height and keep the stock sensor arms.
