Rear suspension problem
« on: February 11, 2018, 01:53:07 PM »
Hi all, just been out shopping, returned to the car and it looked lopsided and low on the passenger rear, didn’t know if it was just how it was parked, so set off driving. The car handled like a blancmange. I’ve obviously got a problem, the car has self levelling but no error or warning has come up? Any ideas?  Thanks
If I'd known I was going to be this thirsty this morning I'd have drunk more last night!

Probably a leaky airbag or valve block allowing air out.  Simple check is to spray soapy water on it and look for bubbles.

I now have chassis function restricted warning, it's going in to the stealers tomorrow
