    Cheers mate will give it a refurb as soon as the kit arrives as today it took an age for the rear bags to inflate and the nanocom was saying compressor fault

    1/8" Allen key, if you try with 3mm you are liable to render the screw impossible to remove. 1/8" Allen key fully engaged and apply steady pressure.

    The bags started going up at a normal rate last nite but I did the check this morning and I can easily stop air flow from where the blue pipe attaches so will replace o ring and diaphragm next wkend

    Its not a difficult job at all when I could do it. Just beware loosening mounting nuts on compressor you can unscrew the mounting point if the nuts are tight or corroded.

    The bottom ones on the compressor are Torx.

    I also use o ring hooks to get the fiddly ones out and the blunt end (not pointy end) of a drill bit that's just a bit smaller than the diameter of the hole to push the o rings in nicely. Works a treat!
