    Hi I’m am new to Landy zone and would like some advice.
    I have a Discovery 2 2004 and have replaced air bags on the rear in the past. However my problem now is that sometimes both sides deflate at the same time and sometimes they stay inflated, but always together. I have tried soapy water to find leaks but haven’t found any.
    Any ideas?

    Hi. Welcome to Landyzone. This is general intro forum to show us your landy. Problems will get more replies in relevant section (discovery in your case)

    Anyhow, Compressor could be leaking if it’s due a refurb. Don’t think your supposed to spray that lol. Does it pump back up when you start engine? That’s sure sign of leak.

    Yes it does inflate when ignition is turned on. I can also raise it and lower it with off road button. What would need replacing in compressor?

    Sounds like either your compressor has an internal leak, or there may be a leak somewhere in the piping that is common to both bags.
    If you cannot find a leak in the piping I would get it pressure checked to confirm integrity before forking out for compressor.

    Just two? :confused: Seems bit harsh :D Rears?

    @Jwg if you are sure bags/lines are not leaking it is a possibility is all I meant. I’m only familiar with P38 system (or how to destroy it rather;)) P38 compressor can be rebuilt yourself easy/cheaply enough with patience. Seal goes that pumps air in cylinder.
    Discos May be different but I wouldn’t have thought too different. As mentioned I can only point you in right direction, this is intro section ;)
