    Thanks chaps, do you think the car will show a fault code? I just ask as there are not currently any warning lights.

    I may have to invest in a Nanocom although I have just downloaded the Rave manual. Quick question, where would I find the compressor relay? Had a quick google to see where I can get one from and all it seems to bring up is forum sites talking about problems!

    Hi all, have to say this is a massively informative and helpful thread and has helped me over the last few months of troubles however I am a little confused as to my current situation and I'm starting to feel like I might be throwing money at an endless problem with a 52 plate ES.

    New air bags went on a couple of years ago and ride has been fine until December when one day the ride height just dropped at the rear just after driving away. left for a few days then was taking it to be looked at and the rear came up within a minute of driving away. Carried on as normal then a month later it dropped at the garage after a a short run start and stopped the engine a few times and it came up again. a week later it dropped again and never came back up so replaced the compressor and all seemed well until it dropped again after doing about 20 miles.

    So then it starts to show a rear left sensor fault which was promptly replaced, and now it has risen about 2" higher on the side of the new sensor. I am thinking it may be a calibration issue but my garage tells me that they have never heard of such a thing. I'm wondering if sensors need to be replaced in pairs or like for like I think one side is original and the other is Britpart?

    Thanks in advance for any help and suggestions

    There is a calibration, but you don't need to go to a Main Stealer to get it done. Any good independent Landy specialist will be able to sort out your ride height issue. There's a small amount of extra info on Page 1 of this thread.

    Congrats on an exceptionally thorough and helpful article.
    My 2003 series 2 won't let go of off-road mode on the off side....should I be looking at blocked valves, or height sensors please ?

    I would kindly suggest you both post iin the Disco section, also it would be benificail for you both to connect up to working diagnostics ( nanocom or Hawkeye if posssible ). This may help you resolve your problems in a more timely manner.

    Cheers
