Allroad suspension minor issue - for now!

    Dane Had an 8L S3, a B5 RS4 now I have a B8 S4

    Hello chaps not my usual section i know but thought I'd ask

    Recently purchased an allroad for an excellent price to keep the miles off the RS and to get me on to farms to go shooting etc.

    It had £5k spent on it on cams and suspension before I bought it, BUT it does seem to occasionally sink at the passenger rear very slightly overnight and had sunk so the tyre was tucked in the arch when we came back from a weeks holiday.

    A Vagcom scan reveals the following:

    01780 - sensor for vehicle levelling
    04-10 - mechanical malfunction - intermittant

    01770 - temperature sensor for level control pump/compressor (g290)
    30-10 open or short to plus - intermittant

    I only get a solid suspension light when using the lowest suspension setting, no problems at level 2, 3 or 4 but when on the motorway and it lowers itself to level 1 the light pops up.

    Thoughts on this chaps, could the level sensor be making the car sink on one corner? should I do a suspension level calibration?
    or could I have a perished air bag?

    anyone know how to read what the level sensors are reading in vagcom?

    ta muchly!
